Subjects of "Wretches and Jabberers” (Sitara Nieves/ The Takeaway)

We have a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving here at the Takeaway, including loyal listeners and unexpected guests. Among them, a team of five people who helped us see the world through different eyes: Larry Bissonnette, Tracy Thresher, their assistants Pascal Cheng and Harvey Lavoy, and film director Gerry Wurzburg. They talked with us about their documentary, "Wretches and Jabberers."

Part buddy movie and part road trip movie, the film follows two autistic friends (Bissonnette and Thresher) who do most of their communicating through typing, as they travel around the world with the message: "We are more like you than not."
