249: November Q & A

This Week’s Episode:

This episode is the recording of November’s live Q&A.  The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live.  Brendan Mahan once again joins me on this Q&A.

On this episode, you will hear Brendan and I recount our experiences at the CHADD conference.  We also dive in and answer a handful of listener-submitted questions on topics like digital minimalism, holiday stress, and time blindness.

You can listen to our live Q&A sessions on the second Tuesday of every month at 1:30 pm Eastern.  Join Brendan Mahan and me as we answer your questions live. You can register at
