Judy Blake returns to discuss her personal journey of raising 2 children with Autism. She and Craig talk about the misguided stereotypes placed on autistic children, how there are varying degrees of the “Autistic Spectrum” and how a single mother raises two boys with special needs and keeps her sanity. All Craig knows is he isn’t doing nearly enough each day compared to the crazy-busy Judy and he probably needs to pick up the pace!

Ezra Charles talks with Craig about writing songs, arranging music and knowing that the shower is the best place to think about horns. While Craig can’t sing or play any instrument, he does appreciate an entertainer when he sees one, which is why he gets Ezra to play some piano and talk about his life as inventor and musician!
Included in this podcast is the great song “88 Answers”.
