Quality ADHD Edutainment!

I’m a huge fan of the blog, podcast, and René as a human being! She is a master curator and also very funny! I always learn something that helps me understand my experience or relate to other people. I would listen to this podcast even if I didn’t have ADHD!

HeresMyTwoCentz ,

Thanks for the space

Black Girl, Lost Keys was the reason I was able to diagnose myself and ultimately get a formal dx. Happy there is now an additional platform to continue to learn more.

MizTeeFranklin ,

Informative!

Been a follower of Black Girl Lost Keys for awhile. I can’t wait for more episodes. Congrats René!
