5s madman ,

Such an asset!

So helpful for those with ADHD diagnosis! Engaging and informative

Baltimore Boundaries ,

Relateable, Insightful, and

This is a podcast for people with ADHD about people with ADHD by people with ADHD. The interviews sometimes make me get a little choked up, I relate to the way they are feeling so well. And sometimes they make me laugh because i’ve been in that exact situation. My favorites are definitely the live Q&A. Maybe it should be called Q&Q&Q& Aha! The person asks a question, and then the panel asks a bunch of follow up questions to help the asker more clearly frame the issue. It’s like a mini coaching session and I always learned so much!

Myota ,

Ep 512

Ep 512 with Melissa was so good! I’m in art school right now and felt a kindred spirit in her. Also a agree that you are the BEST interviewer I love this show.
