Great info, hard to absorb!
I have learned so much but the poor audio and the format is hard to engage with so my ADHD brain keeps losing focus ):
This is the best free resource I have found to date for ongoing personal education about ADHD. Some episodes are more relevant than others to me personally, but the content is consistently top-notch, with deep dives on particular aspects of ADHD research, treatment, and support. ADDitude, thanks for making this freely available to people, it’s a great gift to me and (I’m sure) to many others!
P.S. For those who (like me) have trouble focusing on some of the less-animated speakers, try listening at double speed. I’ve found that even the episodes I have initially found boring are full of valuable information once I use the higher playback speed to raise the stakes and force me to listen more carefully.
Hard to focus
I’m trying to listen to this podcast. I really want the information. But the people are so boring. I find it ironic that a podcast about ADHD showcases experts who speak in such a droning, monotonous way. I’m distracted and inattentive within seconds. When I can focus, it sounds like good information, so you get an extra star.
