Jenn Jordan has always loved talking about her life with her son Jakob, who has autism. Here, she shares all the feels that come along with sharing space with someone who is different. It’s the journey they’ve taken together, finding ways to connect, love and laugh through all the challenges. At its core, this podcast isn’t just about parenting autism, it’s at the heart of the human experience that we all share.
