Roleplaying vs. Mechanics: A Neurodivergent Allegory Welcome back to Infinite Quest!!

Cate and Erik are back after their break (and some unplanned life stuff) to debut season THREE, and oh boy do they start off with some...thoughts. A lot of thoughts. Thoughts about thoughts about thoughts. They discuss new revelations about TTRPGS, roleplaying, and how the microcosm of game play can help inform the macrocosm of life, in general. Bailey also makes a guest appearance as the official PodDog of Infinite Quest Industries.

The Spoons of Kindness In this episode, Cate and Erik invite you to take a breath and feel whatever it is you need to feel right now. There's a lot going on We talk about our relationship to kindness, how it matters, fundamentally, but how it isn't always the easiest thing. We unpack some of the work needed to be *truly* kind and discuss just how important kindness can be, not only on the individual level, but also to our communities as a whole.

Cart Before The Horse In this episode, Cate and Erik sit down to talk about over versus underpreparing in conversation with ADHD and the curse of all-or-nothing-thinking when it comes to *actually* getting stuff done. They discuss how planning for something big (like a new web series...) can be made even more stressful by the idea that it has to be perfectly done or not at all, and how scary it is to be on the verge of something big, especially when you never know when that hyper-fixation will wear off.

Gas Tanks and Pilots In this episode, Cate and Erik sit down to discuss a therapy breakthrough (and perspective adjustment) that Cate recently had. We talk about ADHD task management, how 'leaving things until you HAVE to' can make more work on the back end, and how frustrating it is to feel immobilized by not having enough momentum to start. In the back half, they make the biggest announcement in Infinite Quest history and ask if there are any experts in the house. Get ready, Summer 2022 is going to be WEIRD.

Talking ADHD with Tim_Ahern_Art In this episode, Cate is feeling quite under the weather, and so Erik tags in cool guy, incredible maker and truly excellent content creator Tim Ahern sit down to talk about their experiences with ADHD.

Misinformation and Tour Dates In this discordant two-part episode, Cate and Erik have a ...pointed and passionate...conversation about the frustration of consistently having to navigate misinformation as educators and advocates. Cate rails against the broad generalities of "adhd mindreading" and he harm that narrative can do, and Erik gets vulnerable about what this work means to him. Later, Cate and Erik outline their 2022 tour schedules and do some announcing and explaining of where they'll be for the next few months.

The One's for the Burnt Out Gifted Kids In this episode, Cate and Erik review a new study by UKAAN, the United Kingdom's Adult ADHD organization and what it has to say about the challenges of being both intellectually gifted and having ADHD. They talk about their experiences on either end of the "gifted kid" spectrum, and what it's like to grow up with the expectation "gifted" brings, and the expectations we put on ourselves. Cate talks about boredom and self-governance, Erik talks motivation and self-defining, and also remembered to do the patreon song, you're welcome.
