In this episode (recorded live on twitch), Cate and Erik...boldly attempted to make an episode about moving, but it turned into something...a little less focused. Cate spends a weird amount of time talking about the Rocketeer, how much Victorians sweat in their chemises and unpacking one of her biggest regrets, and Erik contributes some suggestions on how to plan and prepare for a move. Cate contributes literally nothing this episo...

In this episode, Catie talks about the poem "Wild Geese" by Mary Oliver and self-acceptance. This speech was originally given by Catie as part of a speaking engagement she did earlier this month, and after running it live on Twitch, a whole lot of you asked for a clean audio copy to listen and share, so here you go.

In this episode, Catie and Erik discuss the ongoing and weirdly pervasive conspiracy theory-esque suggestion that ADHD isn't real. (Spoilers, it is). However, we wanted our podcast to be more than 30 seconds long, so we spend some time talking about some of the more common misconceptions and questions we get asked about ADHD, and also Catie has, ironically, one of the worst ADHD meltdown days she's ever had while trying to ...

In this episode, Catie and Erik sit down to talk about their vacation and what it did... and didn't accomplish for them. Catie gets very, very honest about some of the stuff she's been dealing with (and is already feeling very awkward about this episode. Thanks, RSD). We talk about being tiktokers, about personal and professional expectations and we touch on what it's like to never, ever, ever be less than slightly bore...

Ah, how the turns have tabled. In this episode, we swap role and this time, it's Erik in the hot seat as we delve into just how Erik became...well, Erik. And speaking of tables, we talk a lot about how dinner table conversation shaped little baby Erik into the Very Excellent Person he is today. (Also this is probably a good time to teaser trailer the fact that Erik's parents are going to be our guests this week on our Thurs...

In this episode, Catie sits down to have a candid conversation about parenting with Dr. Kimberly Douglass, Owner and CEO of Remote Learning Solutions (and pretty awesome Neurodiverse tiktoker). Originally we planned for this episode to be about school, but we wound up talking about something far more important- how to support your Neurodiverse kid. We talk about advocacy in and out of the classroom and how parents can work with the...

In this long-awaited episode, Catie and Erik start the (very, very raw and vulnerable) process of unpacking their ADHD-high-performing-burnt-out-gifted-and-talented-kid experiences with music, rehearsal and performance. They offer (a few) insights on how to effectively rehearse and manage with ADHD, but...honestly y'all, this one is just a lot of strong, important feelings and vulnerability about our experiences.

After narrowly escaping from the harrowing confines of an anomaly detector, Blumken and Helvetica venture deeper into the ADHD headquarters in search of answers. Spoiler #1: they don't find many, but we do learn just *how* much thought Chris put into this. ?Spoiler #2: It's a whole, whole bunch. Also Catie's new favorite character MOD shows up ... a whole bunch more, so that's fun.

Whelp. This was supposed to be an episode **about** executive dysfunction, but instead it became an episode **of** executive dysfuntion. It's been a really hectic couple of weeks and it's starting to catch up with us. In this episode, we talk about the logistics of sending a flying teacup into orbit, and then move on to what was supposed to be a conversation about executive dysfunction but devolves steadily into Erik And Ca...
