Show Notes

Rick Green returns to this podcast on this episode.  Rick created the ground-breaking website TotallyADD.com.  He’s also responsible for two PBS documentaries on adult ADD, ADD and Loving It?! and ADD and Mastering It! These documentaries were very well received.  Rick is a former Physics teacher and became a full-time comedian with The Frantics, The Red Green Show, and History Bites.

In this conversation, you will hear Rick talk about the sacrifices he’s made and the struggles he’s endured to produce his incredible documentaries on ADHD.  ADHD and Loving It?!  has been viewed by an estimated 4-5 million Americans!

Because of Rick’s experience as a content creator in show business, he provides an interesting look into the areas of the industry that can cause people with ADHD some trouble.  He also shares resources and techniques that he has implemented to help him with organization and structure.
