One of the best things about modern technology is the accessible information — especially when it comes to understanding mental health conditions like Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD. A great example of this technology?

Podcasts.

ADHD podcasts come in all flavors and genres, and everyone’s taste is different. So, unsurprisingly, the task of finding the right podcast for you can be a little overwhelming. In true ADHD fashion, many of us will probably spend a lot of time searching for the perfect podcast, only to burn ourselves out, and we never end up listening to the podcast.

Don’t you wish there was an easier way to find a collection of some of the best ADHD podcasts?
