Aftereffect

In summer 2016, a police shooting upended the life of Arnaldo Rios Soto, a 26-year-old, non-speaking, autistic man. Aftereffect is Arnaldo’s story – a hidden world of psych wards, physical abuse and chemical restraints – and asks the question: How did Arnaldo’s life go so wrong? Aftereffect by Only Human is produced by WNYC Studios, a listener-supported producer of leading podcasts including Radiolab, On the Media, Death, Sex & Money, Nancy and many others.
