Clutter? I hardly know her.
Clutter? I hardly know her.
In this episode, Cate and Erik come clean (get it? See what I did there?) about the role that mess & clutter play in their lives. They talk about the thought process that keeps clutter happening and what it's like to live in the liminal space of "all or nothing thinking". Cate also spends a weird amount of time talking about "aesthetic". Not a lot of solutions in this one, but a lot of honesty around ADHD and mess.

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.

ADHD & Impulsive Decision Making
CW: This is a particularly vulnerable episode, especially towards the end. Impulsive decision-making is a hallmark of the ADHD brain. However, the grown-up reality is that sometimes, impulsive decisions affect more than just you. Sometimes, impulsive decisions can hurt others. In this episode, Cate and Erik sit down to discuss what happens when you make a mistake, when you rush into the "yes", when you overcommit or rush into something before doing your due diligence, and what effect that can have emotionally when the repercussions of those rash decisions come back to remind you of your previous shortcomings.

Oh gosh oh gee it's the FIRST EVER VIDEO PODCAST (if you're listening on Spotify).  In this episode, Cate and Erik sit down to discuss the 4th DSM criteria for ADHD but instead, Cate has a vulnerable ADHD moment.

They discuss developing good - and breaking bad- habits, and the frustrations that come when the line between habit and addiction are blurred. We discuss the nuance of "fault", and how breaking things can sometimes be less helpful than small tweaks.

FRUITSNACK WARNING! This episode contains discussions about sex and sexuality, there are also some swears. In this episode, Cate and Erik sit down to dismantle some myths about Neurodivergence & sex, particularly the idea that there is a "normal" sex drive. They discuss their struggles with their often-changing interest in sex and intimacy, and talk about how sometimes, RSD, hyperfixation and a lack of communication can create a perfect storm of resentment and anger in a relationship. Most importantly, we just talk about how we kinda don't want to have sex right now, and that's okay.

Let's see how our intrepid adventurers manage to get out of this one. MOD makes another appearance (and so does Atticus) and Helvetica maybe does a crime. Maybe. Also Chris, our intrepid DM, somehow manages to keep us (very nearly) on track for an entire episode, which we felt like deserves its own mention.

Cate unpacks her fears and failings, Erik thinks farts are funny, and we meander through a meaningful, if not slightly tangent-filled conversation about the prospect of what InfiniteQuest could become.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Accidentally About Systems
In this episode, Erik and Catie sit down to do a Q&A and immediately get distracted and record an entire podcast about an entirely different subject because that's about as on-brand as it gets.

Bonus Weirdness: The Casefiles of Never and Moore- Chapter 1
It's a bonus Tuesday episode! Let us explain: We love getting to educate and advocate for mental health, but we also have a lot of other cool stuff that we do. As such, Erik and I have decided to start dropping some "grab bag" episodes where we share other stuff we're excited/passionate about. This week's episode is from that time when Catie decided what she REALLY needed to do was start an old-timey radio show podcast.    That uh....didn't work out. But now, for your listening enjoyment, we re-recorded the script as a Tuesday surprise.    Help Support Infinite Quest:      patreon.com/infinitequest redbubble.com/people/infinitequest Tiktok: @catieosaurus | @heygude Instagram: @catieosaurus | @heygude Business Inquiries: InfiniteQuestPodcast@gmail.com Infinitequestpodcast.com

An Honest Discussion: Depression and ADHD
An Honest Discussion: Depression and ADHD
Warning: This episode features an exceptionally candid discussion about depression and, to some extent, suicide. Catie also cries which tends to freak people out, but here we are. Erik and Catie open up about their own experiences in dealing with depression. We talk a little about the rates of ADHD and depression and offer some [maybe] slightly helpful solutions on how to support your partners or friends who might be dealing with depression. Mostly, though this is an episode about getting stuff off of our chest, because it's been a hard week. If you are in crisis, text 741741 to the Crisis Help Line, 24/7.
