S2 E9: Getting It Imperfect, Doing It Anyway (UPDATED!)
Of course on such an important topic, I would forget to turn off the metronome function in GarageBand while editing the file. I’ve corrected it and so now there is no more annoying rhythmic tapping/clicking. Apologies. This episode is for all of our white neurodivergent listeners. We should have opened the podcast with that, but I’ll say it here. Aimée and I have an awkward, imperfect, incomplete, but important conversation around race and racism. With that here are a lot of links for you to read and sit with, uncomfortably. Find a group of your (white) friends and start having these conversations as well. Read Eloquent Rage by Brittany Cooper and Thick by Tressie McMillan Cottom. Listen to Brene Brown with Ibram X. Kendi on How to Be an Antiracist. TO START. What Is an Anti-Racist Reading List For? Hockey is not for everyone by Akim Aliu Georgetown Slavery Archive Toronto Police Accused of Pushing Black Woman from Balcony to her Death N.B. police shooting of Indigenous woman leads to questions on ‘wellness checks’ Why posting a black image with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ hashtag could be doing more harm than good The Whites of Quebec Pure Laine: Quebec’s Purity Myth Here’s the transcript.

S2 E8: Socially-Distant Weddings, Wrestling, and Writing (OH MY!)
*Note: We recorded this episode and scheduled to publish it before the world was set aflame. We encourage you to read anti-racist reading lists, as well as to donate to anti-racist causes locally (in Canada and in the USA). We are thinking of our own response, in terms of how to participate in the protests as neurodivergent individuals. But until then, please enjoy the regularly-scheduled episode. We have our second guest! This conversation equally could have gone on for two-plus hours, but I have a meeting I had to get to. Welcome Dr. Julie Alexander! Aimée and I are so grateful for how open and honest Julie was, and sharing her lists, her wedding, and her strategies for writing with us. We all learning a little bit, too, about the things we struggled to let go of, but also the things we will always carry with us. Here’s the transcript!

S2 E7: Viva Las Vegas...NOT!!!
You ever hate something that everyone else raves about, like loud parties or, IDK, Las Vegas? You’ve come to right place, where quiet fun is celebrated, and we can admit, in a safe space, that we’re not the problem if we think something isn’t as awesome as everyone else does. I am, however, on team LOUD FUN. Big thanks to Kelly for talking with us, and you’re welcome back anytime. TRANSCRIPT.

S2 E6: WEIRD
I basically got this shirt immediately after recording these episodes (thanks FB algorithm for listening in and suggesting this shirt to buy!). Kelly is back again, and we keep talking about how we’re, well, weird. But that’s ok. We’re reclaiming the word for ourselves, and celebrating our neurodiversity. TRANSCRIPTS!

S2 E5: Opinionated Ladies on the Internet
LOOK WE HAVE A GUEST! That’s Kelly J. Baker (aka @kelly_j_baker on Twitter). She also has colorful hair and glasses, like us, and is also an Opinionated Lady on the Internet, like us, too! I laughed a lot during our two hours of recording. Here’s part one of three of our conversation. Come laugh with three very Opinionated Ladies on the Internet Who Also Have Brightly Colored Hair and Glasses! TRANSCRIPT!

S2 E4: Narratives We Tell, Stories We Crave
Look, I don’t usually self-promote here, but, if you could: Given the current situation in the world, if you buy one of my two self-published books, I will donate the proceeds to Hope for College. Buy Learning to Breathe which focuses on mental health, and Twist, Weave, Untangle about my becoming a critical digital pedagogue. Today’s episode, the last of the pre-recorded ones, picks up where we left off in the last episode, talking about stories – the narratives we write and re-write about ourselves, but also the stories we long to hear about ourselves, or at least about people who are “like” us in important and recognizable ways. As always, there are transcripts.

S2 E3: Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria
I know, I know, I keep calling it Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria. But you can read a bit more about it and how it specifically impacts people with ADHD. It really was one of those moments where so much of how I reacted (and how my kids reacted) made much more sense once I found out about RSD. This episode is probably my most personal one. If you’d like to read me laying my heart out, here’s the transcript.

S2 E2: Who Are We Now?
When you’ve been unknowingly living with ADHD for as long as Aimée and I have, getting the diagnosis and then taking medication can radically shift your identity as well as how you are productive. In this episode, that’s exactly what we talk about – what is still hard or newly hard now that we have our diagnosis and are taking out medication. As always, help yourself to the transcript.

S2 E1: Looking Back, Looking Forward
Listen to us, all young and naive and not sheltering in place, confined to our homes, working remotely, trying to homeschool our kids. This, this was how S2 was supposed to start. And let this remind of a time before COVID-19, when 2020 held out hope for a new year. As opposed to *waves hands around* whatever this is. Anyway, we reflect back on what recording S1 meant to us, as well as what we were hoping (and still hope) to talk about this season. And, who knows? Maybe we will! TRANSCRIPT GOODNESS!

S1 E12: Tidying Up, Pt. 2
In this, the second part of our conversation about Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, Aimée and I talk about the very specific academic “stuff” we’re attached to, including getting into that whole non-debate about how many books we’re supposed to have.

S1 E10: Playing Well With Others
(The above-quote from Aimée did in fact inspire the title of this episode.) A challenge we all face, neurotypical or not, is how to effectively work together, to collaborate, to spend time in a shared space together. For people with ADHD, it can sometimes be even more of a challenge because of how our brains… Read more S1 E10: Playing Well With Others

S1 E8: ADHD Tips and Tricks
…only because Gender Identity and Affective Labor as a title isn’t as catchy. But, we are also talking about what we do to help ourselves get through the day as stress-free as possible. I avoided using the word “productive” as to not allow our worth to be reduced to what we produce. Because neoliberalism and… Read more S1 E8: ADHD Tips and Tricks

S1 E7: Money Troubles
Mundane tasks are the bane of the ADHD brain. Lee and Aimée discuss the struggles they both have with paying bills – not because there is no money, but because it’s just so damn repetitive and boring. And we forget. A lot. All the time. Kinda like why I’m scheduling all these posts in one… Read more S1 E7: Money Troubles
