    This was SUPPOSED to be an episode about finishing things, but turned into... not that. Erik talks about his insecurities around libraries and Cate decides to go live with Jeremy Irons. Have fun!

    Clutter? I hardly know her.

    Clutter? I hardly know her.

    In this episode, Cate and Erik come clean (get it? See what I did there?) about the role that mess & clutter play in their lives. They talk about the thought process that keeps clutter happening and what it's like to live in the liminal space of "all or nothing thinking". Cate also spends a weird amount of time talking about "aesthetic". Not a lot of solutions in this one, but a lot of honesty around ADHD and mess.

    Bed-idsode: Hyperfixations

    Bed-idsode: Hyperfixations

    In this from-the-bed episode, Cate says "horny" a record number of times in a single podcast and also Erik talks about chemistry and how it led him to the perfect pesto recipe. They discuss how hyperfixations have shaped their past, present and future and set out to share their favorite hyperfixations, but, like most episodes, don't exactly get to the point.

    Meds, Content and Burnout

    Meds, Content and Burnout

    In this episode, Cate and Erik catch up after a couple of weird weeks off of podcasting (and their meds). They discuss the insidious nature of ADHD burnout and what it's like to manage work/life balance as a content creator when life IS content, and Cate manages to shoehorn in how badly she wants to be on Dimension 20 for the 100th time this year.

So comforting to know I’m not alone

I’m so incredibly glad I found this podcast. I’ve struggled with ADHD my whole life, and am still trying to learn how to live with it.

Catie and Erik make me feel like I’m not alone anymore—other people face the challenges that I do.

They give me hope that, even with my ADHD, I’ll be able to have a fulfilling life.

Crawl inside my brain, why doncha?

Love the two hosts. They are deeply relatable, funny, have great chemistry, and are never boring.

This is a podcast I don’t have to listen to sped up.

Also, FEATURE, not a bug: episodes are often randomly released. This is good for two main reasons. 1. It reinforces in a visible way the importance of rest and taking breaks (thanks for the example). 2. My little fat brain loves randomly delivered treats. It’s so fun to see a new episode appear!

Hannah Bon-banana ,

Makes me smile

It’s really well-rounded. They can be humorous, academic, vulnerable, all of the above. I’ve learned a lot! Thank you.
