Welcome to the origin episode of ADHD Essentials! I'm your host, Brendan Mahan, M.Ed., M.S. I'm a former teacher and school counselor, turned ADHD coach, speaker and consultant.
In this episode we'll be talking about the plan for the pod, and how it came about. I'll also share some of my credentails, and preview some of the upcoming episodes and guests!
The format is a little different than how the rest of the show's episodes will work. In this one, I'm joined by my friend friend Eric Tivers, host of ADHD reWired. Eric's been encouraging me to do this for sometime, so I couldn't think of anyone better to start out with. In this origin episode, he'll be interviewing me. Moving forward, however, I'll be the one asking the questions.
Thanks for listening!
