About

ALL THE THINGS ADHD is a podcast started by Lee Skallerup Bessette and Aimée Morrison because they wanted to created a resource for professional women who have been diagnosed later in life with ADHD (like them) and the people who love them and are seeking to better understand them (us).

Lee and Aimée both have PhDs, are both considered professionally successful, and yet embraced their diagnoses that came in their 40s. The podcast will address the stereotypes, stigmas, societal pressures, and systemic forces that shape the narrative around ADHD, as well as practical tips and advice for getting along with ADHD.

They welcome questions and suggestions at allthethingsadhd@gmail.com or on Twitter using the hashtag #allthethingsADHD. But please refrain from mansplaining ADHD to them. Thx.

  1. Hi,
    I got to your podcast through this Guardian podcast, one of the comments mentioned you : https://www.theguardian.com/society/commentisfree/2020/jan/15/a-new-life-being-diagnosed-with-adhd-in-my-40s-has-given-me-something-quite-magical

    I immediately started listening. I’m not diagnosed (yet?) as I have to figure out how to do this. It’s easier for a child than an adult. As a gen ex woman, who has a degree in English and teaches media studies (!!!) in an Arts institution in Belgium, all you say makes sense. It’s eerie. Thanks for doing this. It’s fun-ny, aha-erlebnis, and touching.
    I end on a technical note: the 1st 4 episodes are not visible in the RSS or in the podcatcher I use.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. I’d love to join your podcast if you want to appeal to more diverse audience since I am America and a minority/Hispanic. Although it ain’t much different from y’all POV. But I don’t have a PhD just a masters. 😉

    1. Thanks! We’d love to have you. We’re in a bit of a hiatus right now because life, but I will be reaching out once we’re recording again!

  3. Hey!

    I wanted to thank you guys so so so so much for your podcast. I can’t tell you how much it means to me.

    I also wanted to throw something out there. Just a thought, probably something you know about already, but I’ve been curious for a while whether there’s a link between ADHD and borderline personality disorder. They are terribly similar in many ways.
