Even today with all the information available, doctors are still over-prescribing medications. Also, was masturbation really used as an example to make a point about ADHD in this episode? Yes, yes it was, and nobody giggled. Plus, by popular demand, the "Uneducated Segment" is back and tackles protecting our children. There was even more, but possibly forgettable as it's not coming to mind.
Mark is invited as the keynote speaker at the annual Utah Valley University ADHD Conference. THIS IS NOT THAT SPEECH . . . but rather Mark and Miah talking about highlights and lowlights of the event. Miah almost chokes on his drink. Don't worry, rescue personel were not required. ;)
Two winners of previous giveaways are announced and new contest is explained. Share with us your ideas for how we can improve the show to win a GoPro Camera. Also, please leave positive feedback on comments section in iTunes.
Missing Miah, but joined by another wonderful person, Mark discusses ADHD diagnosis with Therapist Christy Kane. Trends in therapy, finding normal, bricks in a wall and something about tattoos and Harleys. Also, is it possible that America itself was a grand ADHD experiment?
It wouldn't be like Mark and Miah to not eventually do a show about handcuffs; so the real question is, who's blindfolded and handcuffed? Also, 4 types of people are discussed, what type are you? Then, common advice given to those with ADHD is put to the test in the UN-Educated Segment.
Hosts Mark Patey and Jeremiah Johnson try to be serious, and fail; yet somehow they manage to relate rusty tools to life and ADHD. A caller from Africa requests help with ADD and ADHD within a culture that doesn't accept it seriously. Then, Placebos and their place, or not, within the ADHD world. Finally, for the "Uneducated" segment, our heroes tackle "The Calm Before the Storm"
A plane crash and how it is related to ADHD. More you didn’t know about your hosts, including Miah’s epic ADHD moment at work at the worst possible time. Also, Mark and Miah take a question from Sergio, a listener call-in concerned about ADHD in social settings. Then in the “Uneducated” segment our hosts take on cluttered desks as a sign of a cluttered mind.
Mark and Miah talk to living legend Dick Rutan about ADHD and aviation innovation, near death test flights, and thinking differently. Also, the no zombi guarantee, what’s coming next with listener call-ins, and some other distraction. For those who have read the book “ADDicts and Millionaires - The Gifts and Curse of ADHD” you will notice how Dick Rutan and Burt Rutan worked well together as Equal Opposites.
How much education does it take to make millions? Mark and Miah welcome Dave Nielson to the program to find the answer, as seen through the eyes of this successful ADHD entrepreneur. In this weeks "uneducated" segment, will making positive changes in your life result in support from the majority? Also, Mark and Miah celebrate and welcome the newest countries with listeners to the Distracted program, Iceland, China, and our friends to the North, Canada.
Mark and Miah look into evidence that suggests those with ADHD may actually have tangible gifts that come with the brain that does things differently... also the recent death of a loved one in an airplane crash, texting, and a challenge to the idea of finding balance in life.
