Announcing QuestCraft*: An ADHD Minecraft Adventure
Cate and Erik are on the road in Madison, Wisconsin at GameHoleCon, and we figured this is as good of time as any to announce Infinite Quest's newest adventure: QuestCraft! We're starting a Minecraft server for neurodivergent people (and friends) to play minecraft together and where we'll be creating content. Erik and Cate also talk about minecraft and their experiences playing and the lessons they've learned along the way. Cate shares some FUN SCIENCE and Erik gets vulnerable about just how much precisely Minecraft means to him.

Creating Systems with ADHD
Today's episode comes as a special request from OG twitch stream buddy Tsukino, who wanted to know how to help teach someone how to create systems that work. Which then, of course, begs the question: what makes a good system? In this episode Cate and Erik open up about their struggles and successes in creating functional systems, and Cate finally comes clean about clutter.

A Very Casual Update
On this sick-day episode, Erik and Cate talk a little bit about their latest exploits, from conventions to guest appearances to ... punching people in the feet and whether it is, or is not, a "thing". I dunno, usually I write these in third person but I'm super sick and we're both exhausted, so just know this one is very meandering but includes some important life info about what life is gonna be like for us moving forward for awhile.

Working From Home (Kind Of)
In this episode, Cate and Erik attempt to have a conversation about working from home and accidentally find themselves embroiled in one of the toughest (yet most common) questions they get-- what do you do when you're not motivated? Cate and Erik wrestle with finding an answer that both accurately represents the challenges of functioning as an adult while also acknowledging the profound difficulties that come with executive disfunction (and, for us, depression). Spoilers: we do not come up with a concise answer.

Privilege is real, and on this episode of Fan Girl Fridays, Erik is joined by Tiktoker and generally excellent human being @thisisbensilver, AKA Ben Silver.

In this episode, Cate and Erik (attempt to) talk about their personal relationships with reading and ADHD from their VASTLY differing perspectives. We discuss the statistics and studies surrounding the high percentages of co-morbidities of ADHD and learning disorders, and then we devolve into just the weirdest conversation about school supplies that you've ever heard.

Is ADHD A Superpower?
It's very important for you to know going in that Erik recorded this ENTIRE EPISODE dressed as Captain America. In what might *actually* be our most controversial episode ever, Cate and Erik talk about the ongoing debate in the ADHD community about whether or not calling ADHD a superpower is helpful or harmful. They also FINALLY disagree about something and get into a very not at all heated debate (which Cate immediately freaks out about because ~trauma~). Ultimately, we both agree that even if you don't agree with us, we wanted to do an episode to talk about our own thoughts and feelings on this often-asked question.

Fear and Self-Loathing (and also a brief mention of Las Vegas)
Content Warning: In this episode, Cate and Erik get pretty honest and open up about the often negative emotions and frustrations that come along with managing life with ADHD. We talk about some of our past trauma (well, mostly Cate) and how that has shaped our relationship to anger, stress and our personal frustration tolerance. Erik touches more on his relationship to music, and Cate VERY nearly gets away with avoiding the question altogether. Also there is a bird.     Check out our tour schedule at: Tour Dates (infinitequestpodcast.com) Find us on TikTok and Instagram at: @catieosaurus @heygude    We also stream daily on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/catie0saurus https://ww.twitch.tv/heygude Media/Business Email: infinitequestpodcast@gmail.com Find all of our links and cool stuff at: www.infinitequestpodcast.com

Medication
Cate went on antidepressants and all you get is this lousy episode. In this Very Special Episode, Cate and Erik talk about their experiences and their relationship to medication and its effect on their lives, as well as some common (and uncommon) stigmas, ideologies and opinions about mental health and medication, as well as some of the more common questions we get about it.

F*cks Given and Ungiven
Warning: Cate is dealing with a major depressive episode this week, and so this week's episode is far more casual than maybe is usual. We talk about going back to school, our success and failures in academics, our special interests and why they excite us, and what it's like to meet someone who passionately gives a f*ck (and what it's like when someone doesn't). Cate also tells a horror story from the first year of her very-short-lived teaching career and Erik talks about his decisions to drop out of school (three times). We also get a phone call.          Check out our tour schedule at: Tour Dates (infinitequestpodcast.com) Find us on TikTok and Instagram at: @catieosaurus @heygude    We also stream daily on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/catie0saurus https://ww.twitch.tv/heygude Media/Business Email: infinitequestpodcast@gmail.com Find all of our links and cool stuff at: www.infinitequestpodcast.com

ADHD Burnout
In this episode, Cate and Erik bring their own experiences with burnout to the table, and discover that they have *slightly* different understandings of burnout. We talk the pressures of high achievement, the profound loss that ADHD sometimes brings to new ideas, and discuss absolutely 0 ways to fix it, this is kind of a "feels and rants" episode this week. Warning: we do get pretty vulnerable in this episode, so maybe grab some snacks to get you through.

ADHDnD Live: Part 3- The Thrilling Conclusion
In this very time-blind episode, Blumken and Helvetica find themselves on the precipice of an exciting discovery about who-- or WHAT-- the mysterious entity keeping them trapped in this alternate realm is, and decide the best thing to do is pee on it. I dunno, it's DnD, sometimes it makes sense in the moment. This is the final episode from our live one shot that we recorded at PlayOnCon. Once again, we just want to say thanks to the kind people at PlayOnCon for having us and hosting us- we had an incredible time. Up next- Davenport, Iowa.

A Precisely 60-Minute Episode About Time Blindness
(Alternate Episode Title: "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is" but Cate couldn't decide which one was funnier). In this episode, Cate and Erik discuss time blindness- what it is, how it affects their lives, and some tips, tricks and the COOL STRATS they use to help manage their time, and talk about the challenges and difficulties they face in never knowing exactly what time it is.  We also get into a fight. Okay like...the exact opposite thing as a fight. Also the Patreon Song is the most ARTISTICALLY complex thing you've ever heard in your entire life.

We were so honored to bring ADHDnD for a spectacular three-night event hosted by our indefatigable DM Chris, who put together an interactive DnD game that brought the audience (literally) into the action and dealt with our nonsense live, which is honestly impressive in and of itself.

Infinite Quest LIVE from PlayOnCon
In this, our very first live show ever, Catie and Erik are joined by a live studio audience at PlayOnCon! In this episode, they talk (kind of) about ADHD and gaming, and we end with a *very* wholesome q&a with the audience, in which we discuss authentically being yourself, finding comfort in your own skin (or not) and how best to navigate a world that isn't particularly designed for the neurodivergent brain.

Season One FINALE: Meandering Intentions
In this episode, Catie and Erik take a break from their cross-country road-trip breakdown (the car kind, not the brain kind) to ...attempt...to set some intentions for InfiniteQuest Season Two....what transpires is both proof that two people with ADHD should not spend ten hours in a truck and then make a podcast but also that ...y'know what? Maybe things are going to be okay, or, at least, the start of something new. CW: Catie and Erik talk briefly about depictions of mental illness and systemic racism on shows like Law & Order, mentions of violence/sexual assault per the content of the show. If you want to skip past that part, we sort of start the show around the 20 minute mark but honestly I'm not sure we ever actually started this one.

Moving with ADHD (and also a Brief History Of Victorian Underclothes)
In this episode (recorded live on twitch), Cate and Erik...boldly attempted to make an episode about moving, but it turned into something...a little less focused. Cate spends a weird amount of time talking about the Rocketeer, how much Victorians sweat in their chemises and unpacking one of her biggest regrets, and Erik contributes some suggestions on how to plan and prepare for a move. Cate contributes literally nothing this episode because they spent the entire time distracted by the twitch chat.

ADHD Is Real, Next Question
In this episode, Catie and Erik discuss the ongoing and weirdly pervasive conspiracy theory-esque suggestion that ADHD isn't real. (Spoilers, it is). However, we wanted our podcast to be more than 30 seconds long, so we spend some time talking about some of the more common misconceptions and questions we get asked about ADHD, and also Catie has, ironically, one of the worst ADHD meltdown days she's ever had while trying to record, so things get kind of weird.

Parenting Neurodiversity with Dr. Kimberly Douglass
In this episode, Catie sits down to have a candid conversation about parenting with Dr. Kimberly Douglass, Owner and CEO of Remote Learning Solutions (and pretty awesome Neurodiverse tiktoker). Originally we planned for this episode to be about school, but we wound up talking about something far more important- how to support your Neurodiverse kid. We talk about advocacy in and out of the classroom and how parents can work with their kids' neurodivergency, not against it.     Find out more about Dr. Kimberly Douglass here:  Website: drkimberlydouglass.com https://linktr.ee/Kimberly_Douglass     Find us on TikTok and Instagram at:  @catieosaurus  @heygude            Media/Business Email: infinitequestpodcast@gmail.com  Find all of our links and cool stuff at: www.infinitequestpodcast.com

ADHDnD Part 7: MOD
After narrowly escaping from the harrowing confines of an anomaly detector, Blumken and Helvetica venture deeper into the ADHD headquarters in search of answers.

Boring Flying Teacups
