Today's podcast departs from direct discussion of Asperger's/Autism and instead focuses on the issue of "right and wrong" and making clearcut moral decisions. While this is, of course, relevant to how individuals with Asperger's operate (they are less distracted by the "gray areas" of moral decision making and are good purveyors of what is right and what is wrong morally), I am making a foray into the world of whistleblowers.
I had the opportunity to meet and interview Ann Wright, one of the highest ranking State Department officials to resign in protest to the war in Iraq. Today's podcast is not about spectrum disorders, but instead focuses on a woman who made a clear decision about "right and wrong"...one that had obvious consequences for her career and personal life.
The interview is about one/half hour long, so the download is considerable (but worth the wait). For those of you living in the Keene, NH area, it will be broadcast on friday, April 29 (today) at 11am on WKNH, Keene, 91.3 FM on Free Speech with Larry Welkowitz.
