We discuss all things Rain Man—from the plentitude of dad issues to the many things it got wrong about autism—with journalist Eric Michael Garcia. Bonus: We also love on Oliver Sacks super, super hard.

Eric's book We Are Not Broken: Changing the Conversation About Autism will be out later this year. You can find Eric on Twitter here.

We made a playlist to accompany this episode! It's comprised of songs that come to mind when we all think about this movie.

Why Are Dads is a show in which hosts Sarah Marshall and Alex Steed attempt to understand what the hell it means to be the grown children of dads and other dad-like figures. And, as they do with all difficult subject matter, they do so by looking through a pop culture lens.

You can find producer and music director Carolyn Kendrick's music here. She's also on Twitter.

Fresh Lesh produces the beats for our episodes.
