    In this episode, Ben chats with Wes Lowery, a managing partner with TeamABA where he focuses on Sport Behaviour Analytics. This episode was fun to record in that the discussion centred around areas outside of behaviour support and autism. Wes’ passion for working in this sector is infectious and really opens your mind to so many other applications of behaviour analysis.

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
