Customer ReviewsSee All
First time a podcast led me to an actual community
Eric’s gift to humanity is in his willingness to be vulnerable and in doing so, giving others permission to do the same.
He does not sit high and mighty in the expert chair, even while being a licensed clinical social worker.
His transparency on the podcast is what brought me into his coaching and accountability group.
It’s the first time in my LIFE where the issues I’ve struggled with so incessantly, are brought to the forefront as worthwhile topics of discussion. It’s the first time where time management, goal setting, time blindness, accountability, and a general sense of being seen not as someone with a “deficit”but rather, with a differently structured brain that needs effective support structures, has fully come to light.
I’ve been in a process of de-shaming, and of accepting and honoring my weirdness and deep sensitivity.
The podcast brought me to meeting Eric, and I have to say: this guy walks the walk and talks the (sometimes tangential) talk.
things that app
I’ve never written a podcast review,
Your podcast is helping me figure out my relationship. Everything is coming together like a puzzle. I knew I wasn’t imagining things but I thought it was sloppiness on his part that I had to micromanage him. My aha moment came last week when I realized he had forgotten a chunk of time and couldn’t account for it. And then I remembered the time he forgot to pay some bills, and the time I asked him to take some clothes to the dry cleaners 2 years ago and he still doesn’t know what he did with the items. A friend pointed me to ADD/ADHD. It all started to makes sense. I’m eagerly going through all your past episodes to catch up. Thank you once again!
How have I never listened to this podcast before?!
I have been really embracing my ADHD within the last few years. Part of getting me to the good place I am in today mentally with dealing with what I thought was a “made up thing”. The first episode I listened to was with Marisa Marangoni and her story really hit home with me. Diagnosed about 5 years ago after I had just gone through a divorce. The girl I started dating after was diagnosed for a few years prior to us meeting. After a few months, she noticed our similar behavior patterns and mentioned it might be worth talking to a doctor about. Long story short, which is never the case, I have taken medicine since then. Keep doing what y’all do, thank you so much!!
