About this episode

The podcast is hosted by Ali Whelan and features Helen King - Radio producer, journalist, communications advisor and podcast manager. After suffering burnout in her 30’s, cancer a while later in life and then getting a surprise adult diagnosis of ADHD, Helen shares how she navigated all of these challenges and how, after a long time struggling to find work which played to her strengths, Helen discovered her passion for podcasting.

Helen hopes her story will provide what  so many people who have gone undiagnosed with ADHD & Autism until adulthood need to hear, that they can succeed in their careers and use their neurodiversity as a gift to do so.
