Something special and unexpected happened when 17-year-old Sam Mitchell joined his school's media club two years ago. He started Autism Rocks and Rolls! Autism Rocks and Rolls began with Sam’s interest in media when he was a junior in high school and has led to a rich podcast and media company.
Sam’s had an impressive lineup of guests. Temple Grandin, WWE's Mick Foley (who has a son on the autism spectrum), NASCAR drivers, as well as "AGT" and American Idol" contestants, such as James Durbin and Mandy Harvey have all shared their experiences.
Join us tomorrow morning for an inspiring chat with Sam - and his proud mother, Gina. Hear how they have come to view autism as a ‘superpower’ with an unlimited promise of success!
