Maya MacGregor Talks The Many Half-Lived Lives of Sam Sylvester (part 2)

This is part two of my discussion with Maya MacGregor about their process in writing The Many Half-Lived Lives of Sam Sylvester. This book is a delightful YA mystery/ghost story with an autistic and non-binary main character, and it's on Pride Month sale for $1.99 in ebook format through the month of June! I was fully engrossed in the mystery aspect of it, and also loved to see the main character finding a supportive community.Content note for this book: it does mention trauma and hate crimes. That said, it's overall very much about surviving and thriving and not about sensationalized suffering.You can listen and/or read the transcript of our conversation below. JuliaWelcome to the OMG Julia Podcast, where we talk about creative lives and processes. This is part 2 of my covnersation with Maya MacGregor, author of The Many Half-Lived Lives of Sam Sylvester. We ended part one with Maya saying how glad they were to see lots of queer representation in media lately, and how they hoped to see more of it.[transition music]JuliaAnd I'm really glad to see that this autistic character is also presented as someone capable of forming meaningful emotional attachments because I feel like that's one of the most persistent myths that I see when people put autistic characters into media is the idea that like basically they're robots who don't have feelings. Maya Absolutely.JuliaThey're incapable of empathy. They're incapable of making connections with other people. MayaYeah.JuliaAnd therefore there to be pitied. And in fact, when you dig into all of the actual experiences of autistic people, that's not an accurate representation of the experiences that real people have at all.MayaYeah, it's really, really different. I'm reminded of this study. My first disastrous attempt at an autism diagnosis, the person who assessed me was so behind on actual peer reviewed research in her field that she literally said to me that because I had attempted to have friends I couldn't possibly be autistic.JuliaWhat?MayaThere was a study that UCLA did in like 2016, I think, and they were studying the gender differences in presentation of autism in children. I think they tracked about 40 kids, and research is so far behind so it was very binary, very like girls here, boys here. But what they showed was that the boys behave sort of stereotypically, as one might quote unquote "expect" from an autistic kid. They were frequently alone, off doing things themselves rather than engaging with the other students. But the autistic girls would go from group of girls to group of girls, and would bid for attention and bid for inclusion, attempt to play, or attempt to do something with their peers, but they were rebuffed every time. But what the researchers noticed was that, to a teacher's eye, it would look like those kids were actually engaging and that they were behaving quote unquote "normally", but when you looked closer you realized that the the autistic girls were being rejected at every turn. But they were trying really hard. That was my experience my entire life, was trying so so hard. I felt like I was always missing the key to to open up some sort of social acceptance, and that study is just such a perfect picture of how easily we are missed. And as an non-binary person who was assigned female, that was so much my experience of of life and growing up. And so the idea that even clinicians these days will tell us that if we desire to have relationships or friendships, that we can't possibly be autistic… That is just so unbelievable to me, because even solitary autistic boys who present quote unquote "typically" when it comes to autism still want and have bonds with other human beings, and value those bonds. With Sam, I think in revisions I got even more militant about these things when I was just like, "We do have feelings, and we do have empathy!" Most of the autistic people I know actually fall on the hyper empathic scale of things, where we feel too much and can't turn it off.JuliaSince I've since I've learned a lot more about autism as an adult —and I really only started learning about the real different ways that autism actually presents probably three or four years ago —it's been fairly recent, and it took me a while to really internalize that, oh, this matches my experience of the world in so many ways. This is simultaneously a very powerful realization, because it makes me able to reframe and forgive myself for things that I've done that have just not worked out for me. But also make me realize things that I already had started doing to compensate.I realized several years ago, and this is before I'd learned anything about how autism presents, that I react very differently to sensory input than some people. And I had not realized that this was a difference about me until one day… it was a winter day, and I went to a friend's solstice party, and it was very dark because it was the afternoon. Where I live, it gets in very dark at like 4pm in the midwinter time, and so it was it was very dark and very cold outside, and I got to this person's house and I rang the doorbell. And inside, the house was all brightly lit and the heaters were on and it was a party full of people and I went from outside, cold, dark, with only my headphones and music that I was listening to on my own, to sudden, inside a very brightly lit, warm place full of people. And my friend let me in and was like, "Hi. Welcome. How are you?"I looked at her and I said, "I'm sorry, just give me a minute to accustom myself to the temperature change and stuff." And she was like, "What?" And I thought that this is just a normal thing that most people did. It's like you just need minute to recalibrate. I'm not in a dark, cold, outside place. Now I'm in a warm, bright, inside place.MayaAnd there's people here.JuliaYeah, and I've got to readjust before I can actually talk to you. Like, I cannot answer your question about how I'm doing. That's not possible at the moment.Maya Yeah.JuliaI thought that was just something everybody experienced, but it turned out no. In fact, the vast majority of people don't think twice about it. They just would go into that house and immediately be engaging in whatever the rules of the social situation would say that you should do.MayaYeah, and there's so much active processing that happens in those social situations as well. We call it camouflaging or masking. Over painstaking, long periods of trial and error, most autistic people learn (to a degree) social scripting. And that's a constant thing. Even in our conversation, my brain is reminding me to make a sound of agreement at certain intervals to cue that I am paying attention.But that's an active part of me, because of like I've learned by being yelled at if I'm sitting listening to someone and not making eye contact contact, and looking at something else. They assume I'm not listening, and that I don't care.JuliaYeah, and I've always struggled with that. I remember getting in trouble with my teacher in first grade for not looking at her. MayaYeah.JuliaThis is also sort of complicated for me because I've also always had vision problems, and my eyes don't track together, so one eye is always going off in a different direction. So even if I am theoretically trying to look at a person, they might see my other eye wandering and assume I'm not looking at them.And I remember just getting in trouble. I was at a catholic school and this was a very scary nun.MayaOh god.JuliaShe was like, "You're not paying attention to me. You don't look at me when I speak. You're very disrespectful." When I'm listening really hard, a lot of the time the way that I listen is by turning away.MayaYep! JuliaAnd like maybe even closing my eyes because I'm focusing so hard on hearing.MayaYeah, that's 100 % how I am as well and it happens all the time, to the point where it's sort of comical, where I'll be out somewhere with people and there'll be other background noise and so I have to look away from the person speaking if I'm going to actually hear them. It never fails where they will track where I'm looking and I'll have to be like, "No, there's nothing over there. I'm just looking at a completely innocuous patch of grass because I need to hear you better."That's something that doesn't make sense to a lot of people, but that's something that's really normal for me. I really have to focus, especially because I have auditory processing delays, which hit really hard if there's any sort of competing noise. I can do like one masking script at a time. It's either make eye contact with a person, or hear what they're saying. JuliaRight.MayaAnd I generally prefer to hear what they're saying to forcing myself to make eye contact that feels really uncomfortable for me.JuliaYeah, and I think that there are lots of things like that. There are lots of little ways that I've sort of arranged my life so I compensate. I have had multiple conversations with people where I'm like, "Oh, you know I listen better if I'm looking down, and I'm not not listening to you." And I've sort of just started saying that to people, which I had started doing several years ago before I'd ever worked out anything about autism. And I usually, if asked, would have explained it as like, I have all these vision problems and focusing my eyes takes extra effort, which it does. But like people I think are more likely to believe that physical reason. MayaYeah.JuliaBut the thing that I was going to say, when you talked about if anything autistic people that you know seem to have hyper empathy. MayaYeah.JuliaYes. I can't count the number of people that I've met who are actually autistic who say things like, "I cannot watch embarrassment humor, like it hurts me physically to watch it."MayaYeah, Always Sunny and Curb Your Enthusiasm, like I could not make it through much of those shows because it's like actively physically painful for me to watch. And I really struggle with some things

You don't have to be stupid to be a conspiracy theorist. Many people who buy into paranoid fantasies about stolen Presidential elections and sinister global Jewish cabals are perfectly sane, well-educated individuals. So why do they fall for these myths? This week we consider the possibility that the attraction is primarily aesthetic, and that the experience is fun. As for why the perennial focus on Jews: the answer can be found in a peculiar tension between philosophical monism and the worldview of the TV series Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Casey is a dream TMAI guest. First of all, she, like me, is fluent in Real Housewives and dropped the most shocking Housewives truth bomb in this episode that absolutely shook me to my core. Secondly, she wrote one of my favorite books, The Wreckage of My Presence, in which she generously details ALL of her cringiest moments and bad feelings. She also shines a light on a formative childhood experience that she and I both went through and commiserated about extensively.    We talked about getting fired from SNL, losing her mom, finding love after rejection, the mystique and rulebook of the “cool girl” and how we have both nurtured (...and resisted) our undying and unwavering devotion to bed.    Casey Wilson is an actress, writer, director and podcaster. You know her from Happy Endings, Saturday Night Live, The Shrink Next Door, Marry Me, Black Monday, Mrs. Fletcher, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, as well as films such as Gone Girl, Julie and Julia, and Always be My Maybe. Casey co-wrote and co-starred in the movies Bride Wars and Ass Backwards with her longtime collaborator June Diane Raphael. Alongside Danielle Schneider, she co-hosts the hit podcast Bitch Sesh. Her directorial debut, Daddio, premiered at SXSW and TIFF. Casey lives with her husband and two young sons in Los Angeles.   Seriously, go buy The Wreckage of My Presence. I cannot recommend this book enough.

“I love doing accents - Indian, Iranian, Arab. But now stand-up allows you to go do the movie of the week and then go on stage and make fun of it.” Maz Jobrani is a comedian, actor and entertainer - who happens to be Persian, but most definitely identifies as an immigrant. His Netflix special “Immigrant” at the Kennedy Center had him doing some Arab dancing to Public Enemy, he's given two TED talks, and has been on shows and movies you've seen like Superior Donuts (CBS), Grey's Anatomy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Shameless, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, and even NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. Maz has got more than a few comedy specials on Showtime and Netflix. He's performed at the White House and opened for Michelle Obama. His latest standup special is Pandemic Warrior on NBC's Peacock TV streaming service, and his weekly podcast “Back to School” has him outsourcing his kids' questions to experts on God, politics, fashion, and more. You'll enjoy hearing us nerd out with one of the nicest, most curious stand up comics around.

On this episode I interview Lindsey Caplan of The Gathering Effect. Gatherings are like gateways...they take us to another plan as humans. We express, inquire, engaged, grieve and celebrate best when gathered. Without our togetherness we may have never known the fullness of friendship or the fathoms of love fulfilled. By its very definition gathering is another kind of awakening, because suddenly one's scene changes, as as the Spanish poet, Antonio Machado says, "you are now in a different world." And as the Irish mystic John O'Donohue reminds us, "that sense of difference and otherness is always what makes us wonder." My guest on this episode helps organizations and leaders wonder about the gathering effect. Her expertise is in scripting experiences in gathering to help boost morale, engagement, and retention for the long term. From her beginnings as a comedy writer in Hollywood on shows like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to her days an Organizational Psychologist and Head of Talent for successful Silicon Valley companies, Lindsey's journey in change has brought her to a place where she can help others gather to make change stick.
