Julie Obradovic is teacher, a writer, and an advocate. She has spent almost twenty years in education and more than ten years advocating for families and children affected by autism. I first encountered Julie when I started to do my research on vaccines. I was a new mother and I was navigating the intense vaccine schedule as suggested by my doctors. Her book "An Unfortunate Coincidence" had a great impact on my research journey. I fully recognize this to be one of the more controversial podcasts I have ever released. However, even if only for the opportunity to hear another person’s story, I implore you to listen with open ears. My goal in sharing this interview is purely to share a well-researched and difficult perspective, while also honoring the lives of Julie and her family. While vaccines can be a sobering topic, I believe it is appropriate for the times we are living in, and should be openly and freely discussed.
