Being There by Dave Furman, Free for CaPC Members
Dave Furman’s Being There is intended to help us navigate life with those who are suffering.
Special guest Val Dunham returns to the show to talk about the atypical representation of love in the Netflix Original Atypical. There is phrase used in the community of autistic parents and family members, “If you know one person who has autism, you know one person who has autism.” The disability is something that varies in presentation from person to person making the goal of representation in dramatic television a challenge. Drew and Tyler talk with Val about her review of the show and how the oversimplification of of “love is a verb” is detrimental to Christians and all viewers can be. While the show is far from perfect with critics praising and lambasting, Val finds merit in the characters and the nuance found within that she can relate to as the mother of an autistic child.
