Rain Man was a movie based roughly on a real person that brought attention to the challenges faced by an autistic savant. An unfortunate side effect is that the character came of as silly and led to numerous misunderstandings about autism. Oh, and it's also a great road movie about a gorgeous 1949 Buick Roadmaster and its ability to create and destroy relationships.
Sid and James are joined by Kyle Phalen, a brilliant comedian who also happens to be on the autism spectrum. Kyle talks about how this movie impacted his life and speaks very frankly about the positive and negative impact of the movie.
So is Rain Man a good or bad thing? Can a car really be the driving force (pun intended) in a relationship? Why the hell does the Cadillac Cimarron keep cropping up in our podcasts?!
