ADHD reWired

Jason Warren joins me on this episode of the podcast.  Jason is a writer, theatre director, and acting teacher based in London, UK.  This autumn, he will go to Bucharest to help build Romania’s first large-scale interactive production.  He trains actors in London, and his experience with ADHD and neurodiversity are a fundamental part of the skills he teaches.   

In this conversation, you will hear Jason talk about his career and how his recent ADHD diagnosis impacts it.  We cover many topics in the episode, including decision fatigue, routine, language, task management, and much more.
