'Speechless With Carly Fleischmann' Is Back and Features James Van Der Beek


Carly Fleischmann took the internet by storm last April when she interviewed Channing Tatum on the debut episode of her talkshow, “Speechless With Carly Fleischmann.” Now, the talkshow host on the autism spectrum is back with a second episode featuring actor James Van Der Beek.

The 10-minute interview, which aired Wednesday on Fleischmann’s YouTube channel, shows Fleischmann interviewing Van Der Beek using a communication device. The two talk about Van Der Beek’s success as an actor, as well as his roles on “Dawson’s Creek” and “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.”

“It’s OK, to have challenges, It’s OK, to be supportive of people with challenges,” Fleischmann wrote on her Facebook page introducing the video. “And it is not all right to make fun of individuals with CHALLENGES because we all have them too.”

Fleischmann has become a major voice of autism awareness. She first gained notoriety when a video giving insight to how she processes the world went viral in 2012. It’s since been viewed millions of times and brought well-deserved attention to her book “Carly’s Voice.

“Speechless With Carly Fleischmann” will continue with monthly episodes. Next month’s episode features actress Beth Behrs, known for her role on “2 Broke Girls.”
