    Hey Peter! Just discovered your podcast this week (a little late to the party) and finding it interesting so far.

    I would be interested in hearing his wife Laura’s perspective on marriage and medication to get a broader picture, if you could get her on the podcast.

    I was a little shocked by this episode on being married to someone with ADHD with Scott Jordan. Mainly, his take on medication being the blanket solution to his wife’s challenges and marriage challenges. Sounds like (speculation) getting her medicated solved his issues with the “problems” she had. Her unmedicated is “not someone I’d want to live with on a long-term basis?” I get that medication is helpful in many ways, but I think we still need to seek out additional ways to manage the traits and relationships. I sense you tried to get this out of him on the podcast with your questions.

    And I think when he says he didn’t understand her in their first years of marriage that was likely a large part due to his own lack of understanding and also their personality differences (ENTJ/INTJ), not just her ADHD. Again, speculation.

    Maybe you could do another episode on being married to someone with ADHD, with both partners’ perspectives. Hopefully, we hear from Laura at some point! Also, would love to see some more ladies represented on your podcast, as it seems ADHD sometimes manifests a bit differently in females than it does in males (inattentive types vs hyperactive).
