Monotropism

Spring 2024 Round-Up, part 2: Videos and Social Media

Part 1 of this update collected written work published or found since last year’s end-of-Summer round-up.
Here, we focus mainly on videos, podcasts, and social media resources related to monotropism. Some of these are from 2023 but have only recently entered our attention tunnel. This is likely just the tip of the ice, reflecting some of the resources that are currently being shared. Feel free to add any other resources you come across and find valuable in the comments at the end of this page.
