How to Listen to Taking Control: The ADHD Podcast

Taking Control is a podcast. That’s a newfangled way to say, “radio show that is delivered on the web.” If you’ve been intimidated by the word podcast in the past, I assure you, you have nothing to fear. In fact, for you math types, here’s a simple equation:

Once you have that down, everything gets much, much easier.
