About This Show
When young people finish high school, they need to figure out what to do next. Growing up can be a daunting experience for everyone, but for people with disabilities, it can feel like arriving at a cliff. Exited explores this moment through the experiences of eight young people and their families as they search for a place to belong. It's a podcast about growing up and trying to find a place where you belong -- when you've been told your whole life that you're different.
