The outcome of our interview on KGNW, Live From Seattle with Michelle Mendoza last Wednesday, is based on an e-mail from Michelle. Since the Asperger Ministry is based on the east coast and KGNW is on the west coast, we had no way of knowing how it went.
No one outside of KGNW’s broadcasting range could hear any part of the show. Their Internet audio feed was experiencing technical difficulties, along with their station and website. Apparently those who were within the station’s range missed portions of the interview. The interview will be re-broadcasted.
Here are sections of Michelle’s message received on February 20th containing the outcome of the interview, along with other details:
We are at new studios (our 2nd day) we had no internet, trouble with telephones that did not work for the first quarter of the show, our technical difficulties were unprecedented. Because of a line difficulty and having to work out the kinks in our new studio, we must re-broadcast the interview.Please know that your interview was fantastic! You were interesting, articulate, heart warming. What portion that did actually get out over the air delighted listeners who emailed us that our signal was going in and out and wanted to hear more.We heard stories of many who are Aspies and their families. They were so grateful that we took the issue on, so excited that there is a ministry dedicated to this issue. Those who had never heard of Asperger’s were grateful, they now understood folks that they worked with or knew.You impacted people! Our listeners heard a Christian Aspie who proudly took on challenges, rose up and praised God in them and is using them to help others ditch the stigma and rejoice in who they are.I pray that this ministry of yours blossoms.
Michelle asked for an opinion on PBS’s episode of Arthur: When Carl Met George explaining about Aspergers. The feedback aired was brief. A more extensive one is in the plans for a future post. (In some countries this episode was called “George and the Missing Puzzle Piece.”)
