Gah! This episode was really informative and interesting! I loved learning about the neuroscience (and neurotransmitters at play w/ ADHD!) as a person with ADHD I also thought you captured the lived experience really well. Thanks for this episode!

Best podcast EVER!

This is by far my favorite podcast! Everything the hosts say is so comforting and I always feel less alone after listening :,) They discuss so many thought provoking topics, and what they say stays with me even after finishing an episode. This podcast has made me love psychology!!
