The Late Discovered Club

The Late Discovered Club

The Late Discovered Club is a podcast that gives late discovered autistic women and marginalized genders a voice. We bring you real life self-discovery stories, and compassionate conversations with some truly incredible women and people.

Created and hosted by Psychotherapist Catherine Asta whose own self discovery came at 42, with the behind the scenes technical expertise coming from her eldest daughter Caty Ava.

In each episode Catherine will be exploring real and empowering stories of late discovered autistic women and people from all walks of life - through an intersectional lens - helping to deconstruct stereotypes, and giving the next generation visibility.
