If you haven’t tried listening to podcasts yet, these podcasts about ADHD can serve as a good entry point while also offering education, entertainment, and empathy.

1. Faster Than Normal

Successful entrepreneur Peter Shankman is the creator of the podcast Faster Than Normal which focuses on the upsides of living with ADHD. While he also recognizes the challenges that come with an ADHD life, Shankman has been a proponent of looking for ways to use ADHD to your advantage. On his podcast, he covers a wide range of topics and interviews a number of people who are living with ADHD. Another bonus is that the episodes are usually only about 15 to 20 minutes in length, a shorter timeframe in which it’s easier for people with ADHD to maintain focus.

2. Taking Control: The ADHD Podcast

Hosted by Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright, Taking Control: The ADHD Podcast is packed with expert interviews about all kinds of topics as they relate to ADHD, including productivity, work, money, wellness, and family.

Hearing from people just like yourself can be very powerful and affirming, especially if you sometimes feel a bit alone in your ADHD experience.

4. LadyHD

LadyHD is hosted by comedian and writer Jenn Welch. As you can probably guess based on the podcast’s title, LadyHD is focused on what it’s like to be a woman with ADHD. Welch is like many other women with the condition in that she wasn’t diagnosed with ADHD until adulthood, so her podcast recognizes the ways in which the female experience of ADHD can be unique compared to the male experience. Because Welch has roots in comedy, the podcast maintains an overall lighthearted and fun tone. This podcast isn’t as much about giving you ADHD tips or hacks as it is a way for women to talk through their experiences in a real and honest way.

By helping people with ADHD “translate” their experience, they hope to break down ADHD myths and encourage better inclusion in a world that has not been built for neurodivergent folks.

6. ADHD Nerds

The ADHD Nerds podcast is hosted by Jesse J. Anderson, a writer, designer, and developer living with ADHD.
