    anyone from here knows him? he got a bit of traction a while ago for creating a series of short videos called "the truth about aspergers syndrome" and kept making informative videos about this condition ever since, his recent content is short livestreams that are enjoyable background noise and i think overall that its a channel that can be helpful for both those who are autistic and who wants to understand those who are better
    mind you, its not really "sciency" but i still think its an easy starting ground if you wanna do deeper investigations about aspergers

    if you wanna check him out: Max Derrat

    I know Max's videos and I've recommended them before. Very simple format - more like a podcast with occasional slides, but he's got a friendly, conversational style and well planned content. Well worth a watch/listen :)

    I think the one below is the first I saw of his. Although he talks specifically about Asperger's Syndrome, much of what he says is relevant to all of us on the spectrum (considering how fine the dividing lines were). He does some quite good sci-fi & gaming videos too :)

    I like his autism videos. They are informative and insightful. He has started showing more interest in having guest speakers which is good. I used the Discord for a lil while; I recommend only joining it to be a guest though. It's not worth staying on it otherwise imo, especially if you're female. Nothing Max has done, just the people on it seem kinda slyly predatory. Just how most discords go usually I find though. :/
