MelDever ,

Clear, smart & insightful

Really enjoy how Cathy approaches a topic. I also love how she recaps the headline points after the intro... cos she knows my inattentive brain has floated away to ponder, and those headlines gently yanks me back to the now.

Lots of ADHD podcasts with good content out there, but many can be kinda annoying cos either they aren’t recorded well, or the podcasters speak too fast, or they’ve got overly bouncy or annoyingly squeaky voices that distract from the content. (Sorry but it’s true!) Not this one! Cathy strikes the right balance and is highly listenable!
