Fun and Inspirational

I’ve been listening to this podcast since episode 2, but had been following Jesse on Twitter before. It's really incredible and inspirational to hear from professionals and folks from all walks of life about how they have been able to cope and grow with their ADHD.

As someone who was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult a few years ago and has been going through the motions of what life is like now living with that knowledge, I love listening to this podcast and have found so much of the discussions to be insightful. Keep up the great work Jesse!

Awesome

I’m in my early 30s and finally got officially diagnosed with adhd and I can’t tell you how amazing it is to hear people talk about adhd in such a relatable positive way! I never knew there were so many people who are so like me. Thank you thank you for this podcast.

Sorry I Even Tried ,

Keep the episodes coming!

I love this pod! Looking forward to more guests. After getting fired from my dream job I finally accepted that the 9-5 world is not for me. I’m now thriving as a photographer and even filmed a documentary. Still learning how to manage a business and manage my symptoms though. The latest episode convinced me to hire an accountant as soon as possible. Thank you for doing this! —Enyo (IG: enyo_snapped)
