Robert Egger's third film, following The VVitch (2015) and The Lighthouse (2019), The Northman has the largest budget and the biggest scope by far. Set in the late 9th/early 10th centuries in central Europe and Iceland, this epic revenge story is undoubtedly the most thoroughly researched and most accurate Viking film to date. With a phenomenal cast that includes Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Ethan Hawke, the story goes all the way back to the Norse myths that inspired Shakespeare's Hamlet, and the meticulous production and costume design immerses you in a world from over 1000 years ago with flawless attention to detail. We debated for a bit whether this belonged on the Danger Close list as a war film, or whether the psychedelic feel and mythical elements pushed it over into our war adjacent film category for DCE. In the end, there is enough pillaging and conflict in this that we decided it qualified, and we wanted to give this episode the exposure it deserved. We are joined by special guest Dave for this one, as his background in HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts), and his knowledge of Viking history made him the perfect person to join our discussion. So, do we think Eggers pulled off this ambitious project, and did we like it? And just how accurate is it?

“ -URBANO: ¡Vamos! Parece que no estás muy seguro. -FERNANDO: No es eso Urbano. ¡Es que le tengo miedo al tiempo! Es lo que más me hace sufrir. Ver como pasan los días, y los años...sin que nada cambie. Ayer mismo éramos tú y yo dos críos que veníamos a fumar aquí, a escondidas, los primeros pitillos...¡Y hace ya diez años! Hemos crecido sin darnos cuenta, subiendo y bajando la escalera, rodeados siempre de los padres, que no nos entienden; de vecinos que murmuran de nosotros y de quienes murmuramos...Buscando mil recursos y soportando humillaciones para poder pagar la casa, la luz...y las patatas. Y mañana, o dentro de diez años que pueden pasar como un día, como han pasado estos últimos…., aborreciendo el trabajo…, perdiendo día tras día...Por eso es preciso cortar por lo sano.” Fragmento de “Historia de una escalera” Antonio Buero Vallejo nació en Guadalajara el 29 de Septiembre de 1916. Desde su infancia se interesa por la literatura, sobre todo por el teatro. Estudia en la Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Fernando de Madrid y, acusado de , permanece en prisión desde 1939 a 1946. Allí coincide con Miguel Hernández y entablan una fuerte amistad. Al ser puesto en libertad comienza a colaborar en diversas revistas como dibujante y escritor de pequeñas piezas de teatro. Su debut se produce en 1949 con la publicación de “Historia de una escalera”, obra galardonada con el Premio Lope de Vega y que tuvo un gran éxito de público en el Teatro Español de Madrid. Durante la década de los cincuenta escribe y estrena en España y en el extranjero obras tan significativas en su trayectoria literaria como “La Tejedora de sueños” de 1951, “La señal que se espera” (1952), “Casi un cuento de hadas” de 1953, “Madrugada” del mismo año, “Hoy es Fiesta” (1956) o “Un soñador para un pueblo” de 1958. A pesar de sus problemas con la censura vigente, sigue estrenando títulos como “El concierto de San Ovidio” de 1962, “Aventura en lo gris” (1964), “El tragaluz” de 1967 – que se mantiene en cartel durante casi nueve meses- o “Las Meninas” cuyo estreno obtiene un éxito sin precedentes. Además prepara versiones de Shakespeare, como “Hamlet, príncipe de Dinamarca” y Bertolt Brecht (“Madre Coraje, y sus hijos”). Posteriormente realiza un ciclo de conferencias en varias universidades estadounidenses y en 1971 ingresa en la Rea Academia Española, y, más tarde, es nombrado socio de honor del Circulo de Bellas Artes y del Ateneo de Madrid. Asimismo pertenece a diversas academias, comités y sociedades de América, Portugal, Alemania y Francia. Durante los primeros años de democracia en España Buero no cesa de estrenar obras: “Jueces en la noche” de 1979, “Caimán” (1981) y “Dialogo secreto” de 1985, o su versión de ”El pato silvestre” de Henrik Ibsen, en 1982. En 1986 recibe el Premio Miguel de Cervantes por toda su trayectoria literaria. Antonio Buero Vallejo compagina su éxito en el campo de la literatura con su otra gran pasión, la pintura. En 1993 publica “Libro de estampas”, donde se recogen pinturas acompañadas de textos inéditos del autor. En 1997 ve la luz su última obra, “Misión al pueblo desierto”, estrenada en Madrid dos años después. En 1998 es nombrado presidente de honor de la Fundación Fomento del Teatro. Antonio Buero Vallejo falleció en Madrid el 29 de Abril del año 2000, a los 84 años. Antonio Buero Vallejo es quizá el autor teatral más importante y, desde luego más representativo de la España de posguerra. Su primer estreno, “Historia de una escalera” de 1949, original síntesis de dos herencias tan dispares como el sainete y la tragedia de Unamuno, supuso una abierta ruptura con el teatro que se venía haciendo en España en los diez años inmediatamente anteriores. Dicho primer estreno anticipaba también la significación que tendrá Buero desde aquel momento: su empeño en escribir un teatro trágico, que desde García Lorca y hasta entonces, ningún autor español había acometido, y en armonizar la pureza y el criticismo de su arte con un amplio éxito de público. Pero es su drama “En la ardiente oscuridad” (primero que escribe, en 1946, aunque el estreno date de 1950) el mejor punto de partida para acercarnos a este universo dramático. Debemos señalar enseguida algunos datos biográficos del autor que anteceden inmediatamente a la escritura de la citada obra: estudiante de Bellas Artes en el Madrid de la II República; soldado republicano desde 1936 a 1939; muerte del padre, fusilado en Madrid en 1937; condenado a muerte en 1939, hasta la conmutación de la pena ocho meses después; recluido durante seis años en diferentes colonias penitenciarias…...Cuando recobra la libertad abandona la pintura y empieza a escribir. Que el primer drama que escribe sea “En la ardiente oscuridad” es algo que, si puedo decirlo de este modo, da que pensar. Sin embargo, en la superficie, “En la ardiente oscuridad” no guarda relación con tales hechos. Sólo cuando penetramos en la estructura trágica, profunda, de esta obra – una obra que prefigura todas las demás del autor – comprendemos que el teatro de Buero Vallejo surge a causa y frente a la guerra y la posguerra españolas. “En la ardiente oscuridad” es un drama sobre ciegos. En un centro para estudiantes invidentes, donde domina una pedagogía consistente en ignorar la situación de la ceguera – como una forma de intentar superarla , aparece un nuevo alumno, Ignacio, el protagonista, que opone a las mentiras oficiales del centro una afirmación rebelde: la verdad de que es ciego, la verdad de que todos son ciegos y de que necesitan ver. La ceguera, como símbolo de las limitaciones humanas, y la necesidad de ver, como símbolo de la aspiración de lo absoluto, son claves fundamentales para entender el pensamiento de la obra. La antinomia Ignacio – Carlos (éste último alumno destacado del centro) y la muerte del primero a manos del segundo es otro aspecto que debemos destacar para poder añadir inmediatamente que “En la ardiente oscuridad” contiene de manera expresa o esboza estas constantes del teatro de Buero: la antinomia ; las taras físicas, además de la ceguera, la locura, la sordera, etc., que pueden homologarse con aquella; una imagen totalizadora de lo humano, que abarca los conflictos sociales y políticos y, simultáneamente, el misterio del mundo y de la vida, etc. Estas y otras características nos han servido de hilo conductor para llegar a la estructura profunda del teatro de Buero Vallejo, pudiendo proponer así una interpretación nueva del mismo. En esa estructura hemos hallado primero un trasfondo mítico siempre presente o latente: la tríada Edipo, Don Quijote y Caín-Abel y segundo, una presencia-ausencia de Dios, de acuerdo a una visión trágica: un Dios que no es el de las religiones, Dios de certezas, sino el Dios incierto y equívoco de la tragedia, el Dios de Pascal y de Racine. Ambas dimensiones son complementarias entre sí y demuestran la enorme coherencia del teatro de Buero en el ámbito de lo trágico; pues, al fin, es impensable una tragedia sin mitos y sin dioses. Comprobamos así que el teatro de Buero apunta a la necesidad de

Seguimos penetrando en algunas de las más importantes óperas basadas en textos de William Shakespeare. Hoy tenemos sobre el tapete el de Hamlet; y nos detenemos en la ópera de mismo título de Ambroise Thomas. Naturalmente, escuchamos el famoso Brindis, en este caso con el protagonismo de uno de los barítonos que más cantó el papel, en italiano, por supuesto: el gran Mattia Battistini. Versión señorial y elegante la suya. Como está mandado aparece acompañado por el coro. Luego nos deleitamos con el arte exquisito de la soprano Natalie Dessay, que nos ofrece la extensa aria de la locura de Ofelia. Primero el vals y después la célebre Balada. Enseguida traemos otra famosa pieza del Cisne, esta una comedia, Las alegres comadres de Windsor, a la que, entre otros, puso música Otto Nicolai. Escuchamos la importante y conocida Obertura en versión de la Orquesta de la Ópera de Baviera dirigida por Robert Heger. A continuación, el dúo entre Fluth (Ford) y Falstaff (cuyo recitativo comparamos con el diálogo entre Tamino y el Sprecher de La flauta mágica de Mozart) y, como cierre, el brindis del Gordinflón en la imponente voz del histórico bajo Gottlob Frick.

"Absent thee from felicity awhile, And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain, To tell my story." Note on this quote from Hamlet: Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 2. Hamlet appeals to Horatio to postpone death for a while and remain in this harsh world to tell his story. Horatio had wanted to join his beloved prince in death. But Hamlet prevails on his friend to live to tell the truth to the world and protect his memory beyond the grave.

“The manifestations described in this story commenced one year ago. No person has yet been able to ascertain their cause. Scientific men from all parts of Canada and the United States have investigated them in vain. Some people think that electricity is the principal agent; others, mesmerism; whilst others again, are sure they are produced by the devil. Of the three supposed causes, the latter is certainly the most plausible theory, for some of the manifestations are remarkably devilish in their appearance and effect.” The opening lines of an account that describes an event that perplexed, excited and angered the citizens of the small, Canadian town of Amherst in the 19th Century. It probably comes as no surprise that the man who wrote them had a professional flair for dramatics, though the events were hardly short of drama to begin with. A young girl, haunted by demons, whose story book-ended a series of supernormal events with an assault and a conviction for arson. SOURCES Hubbell, Walter (1879) The Great Amherst Mystery.

Cause that's when this podcast comes out and is actually a Wednesday here as well and I am recording live from New York city is a beautiful day out as finally. It looks like we're about to get to summer. The sun is shining. Birds are singing. People in New York are still assholes, but that's who we are. Anyway. It is great to have you on another episode of Faster Than Normal. I'm thrilled that you joined us as I always am humbled and love the fact that you're here.  We are being joined today by an old friend of mine, a wonderful woman named Jillian Ivey. Jill and I have known each other since God, the early aughts, I guess, as they call them probably around, mid. 2007 ish, 2006 ish, something like that, I don't know. Uh, I've known Jill; she started in PR and then she went on her own, she started writing. Uh, I, when I met her, she was working for Philios, which was a similar site of Gothamist. Um, and she does a a hundred million things I'll let her tell you about, but one of the reasons that I wanted to bring it on the podcast, other than she's a great friend and I love her, is because she went an article a couple of weeks ago on Medium. She's a very popular [does he say contributor on Medium?]. She's a phenomenal writer. And she wrote a piece about the untold financial costs of ADHD. Jillian does have ADHD; she's one of us. And she wrote a really interesting piece that I wanted to talk about because a lot of times we don't think about other things, other than oh Adult Hyperactivity Disorder blah blah, we don't think about the hidden costs of ADHD. And so with that- welcome Jillian!  Hi, Peter. It's so good to be here.  So tell us your backstory before we start, tell us, uh, when were you diagnosed and what was it like as a kid and, you know, the, the usual, the usual drama?  Sure. So I, um, I'll work backward. I was diagnosed when I was 36 years old. I'm 38 now. So this is a pretty, pretty new thing for me. And it was something that my therapist had been suggesting for a long time before she just kind of came out and said, you know, I, I think that this is something that, like you should look into more. I think that you have ADHD. And so she sent me some things and I, I looked into a lot of articles because for me, having, you know, having grown up in the 1990's is when ADHD was the thing that everybody was talking about, with like the hyperactive boy in the class, the boy who couldn't sit still and who was talking a mile a minute and PE was the only class they ever actually enjoyed. And so that wasn't me at all. I was a really good student. I have two degrees. I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master's degree from Rutgers Camden, uh, in Creative Writing, both of them. So there, there are degrees that involved a lot of time spent reading. And so I immediately just kind of wrote her off until I started to look into how ADHD is often missed in young girls, because they don't always have that hyperactive sort of behavior. And so if they don't have that behavioral marker that's associated with ADHD, or at least was in the nineties, then it was, it was missed. It was missed really, really frequently. Uh, what I had instead was hyper-focus. And so the things that I, I chose to hyper focus on were reading and writing. I was a really good student because I loved doing those things. And I've learned that as students, if you can find that thing that you're really interested in, that's how you're able to kind of see that hyper-focus work to somebody's advantage. It just happened to be for me that it was that. For some people it might be interested in dinosaurs or it might be an interest in math. I have no, no real aptitude for math at all. And I think part of it was that I started to see the numbers and my brain just shut off. And so I started, I started looking into that and I also started to look into some of the behaviors that are associated with ADHD that they don't talk about in kids very much; things like staying up really late, uh, which I've always, always been a night owl. And one of the things I like about staying up late at night is that it's very quiet. And so I feel like I can get my work done without distraction. Um, my husband is not a huge fan of that behavior. Um, but I recently.. I was talking to my mom about ADHD. And my mother is a grade school teacher. So for her, it really is still about that hyperactive boy in her classroom she sees it's just, oh, Jillian, you don't have ADHD. And I was like, mom, think about how often I was staying up late at night to work when I could have done my work earlier in the day. And you know, some of it I was doing, I was doing theater. I was doing a lot of other extracurricular activities. And sometimes I couldn't start my homework until nine or 10:00 PM, but sometimes I just didn't want to. And my mother is also a night owl. And when I pointed that out to her, the line just went silent.. and she goes, oh, well, you've given me a lot to think about. I'l; t alk to you later. The only time I've ever talked to her about.  You make a really good point though, because I think that, that there's something to be said for people they need to see there's something to be said for silence. You know, there's something to be said for, um, for being able to shut out the rest of the world. Um, for me, that's early mornings and I was a night owl;  growing up college. I mean, I, I was, I don't, I didn't get it. If I didn't have a class, I didn't get out of bed till noon. Right. And then, but I was up to like three, four every, every night. And, um, you know, or in the morning or watching the sun come up and, and it wasn't until my late twenties, when I discovered exercise that I discovered getting up early and now, you know, but the same thing is a few hours. I'll get up at 3:34 AM and get on the bike for a couple hours. Um, you know, and no one's there and it's my time. Right. It's just our time down here, type thing. And so, so that's a wonderful, a wonderful feeling.  Um, so I want, wanna, I want to touch this article because I really was blown away by this. You, you, you, you put into words, everything that I think so many of us think of, but we don't really think about it until it's as need be. So, so you talked about you, you called the article the, I don't remember the actual title, but the subhead was, “another collections agency called today”. [The Very Real, Totally Hidden, Costs of Being an Adult With ADHD Or: Whoops—I got a call from collections again!] Okay. Great. So tell us about the article and then tell us sort of what prompted you to write it. I'm assuming, you know, obviously wrote it from personal experience, so talk a little bit about it. Um, so I, uh, I, I started it actually as a Twitter thread. I, um, to make a long story short, I do go into this in the piece. I used to see a therapist through a company called Thrive Works, um, and Thriveworks is a huge company. They have offices all over the place. They have a bunch of therapists, and I went to see them. I already had my therapist who I love, but I had a very specific issue that I needed to work on. And my therapist said, this is probably something you should go to somebody else for. So for awhile, I had two therapists, um, which was, was really fun. Um, but I needed somebody who took insurance and a friend of mine saw a therapist from Thriveworks, and she said, because they're so big, most of their therapists do take insurance. And so I found somebody who not only was local to Philadelphia because at the time it was pre COVID. And so I wanted to see somebody in person, um, but they took insurance and they had an availability the following week. So over the course of this. I was in distress. There was a lot going on in my life that led me to the point where I needed this therapist. And while I was being onboarded, while I was setting this appointment up, I'm sure they told me that, you know, part of being a member of Thriveworks, you have to pay a monthly fee to be a member. I don't know what the membership fee actually gets you. I still haven't quite figured that out, but whatever. So this would have been February, 2019, where I started, uh, started this process, started seeing this therapist by March of 2021. She had left the practice. And so I, I don't know. I just kinda forgot that I had this monthly fee because I'm not somebody who ever goes and looks at my checking account, which I know I probably, I look at the balance, but I don't look at the individual transactions. Um, and then when I was doing like getting ready to do my taxes at the beginning of this year, I saw that I was still charging, being charged with ThriveRx. And I thought, oh, you know, I must've just been on an annual plan where since she left in March and my, I started seeing her in February, I must just be on the hook for the next year. And in March, I get an email saying your subscription has been canceled. I'm like, great. Not going to worry about it. Uh, checking email is also not a thing I'm particularly great at, and I'm sure that that's a, that's a common behavior that a lot of us have. Um, so what I missed was the email that came up it was in my spam folder saying, oops, sorry, we didn't mean to cancel your account. You're still getting charged. And so when I saw that. Oh, I wasn't actually, uh, like this, wasn't an annual commitment that I'd made. This was a month to month commitment. So I contacted, Thriveworks, and I said, Hey, I'm going to need you to refund everything that I've paid since my therapist left the practice. And they said, oh no, we don't do that. It's on you to end your subscription when your therapist leaves the practice. And I added up what I had been paying since she left. And then I started to add up all of the other things that I have had to pay because I forgotten to cancel something, or because I've missed a deadline and then I've had to pay a late fee. And so it started as a Twitter thread and then I was like 11 tweets in it. Isn't oh, no, probably a out to move this over to a longer form where I can really start to explore it.  It is amazing, right? When you, you sit down and you think so, it's so funny, you, you, you, I feel very seen, heh, based on what you just said. Um, you know, I, I, I have a website, I have several websites that are hosted and. Recently, about a year ago or so I took my two biggest ones and I moved over to a separate host site that monitors them privately. And, um, it's much better, you know, if something goes down, I don't have to worry about it, they fix it. But, you know, I still have a bunch of others that they keep on this, on this other hosting platform. And I just randomly one day got an invoice and I think it was waiting for a flight, so nothing to do. So I clicked on the link and read the.. I was still being charged for the two big websites, even though they haven't been hosting my accounts over a year and you know, you get the notification that says, okay, your website has been officially taken off this platform. I think there's something about the ADHD in us that wants to assume it's going to be handled for us. Right. Because if I have to think about it and then deal with it. That's a whole process. Right. So, so yeah, I was paying like an extra $40 a month for like past year for absolutely nothing. And I can't tell you how many, how many times I've done that. I mean, you know, I think for, for us sites, like, uh, is it Truebill or whatever those are are, are, are godsends, but they're also scary as hell. It was like God, when they go through our, for their first run, this is going to be really depressing.  Yeah. Yeah. You know, I think that it's great that there are platforms like truebill and other services that allow you. I mean, I have, you know, there are, there are planners that are catered to people with ADHD. There are all sorts of reminders that you can set on your phone or your calendar to pop up an alert, like things that pop up once a month to, to remind me, you know, I have a subscription and if I don't want to get billed, I need to make sure that I tell them not to, not to charge me this month. Um, so, so that's all great, but at the same time with technology, there's really no reason that a lot of these companies can't do this stuff themselves. Like when my therapist left the practice. It would have been so easy for Thriveworks to go through their CRM and say, you know, pull all of the people who have seen this therapist in the last year and contact them and say, as you know, this therapist is leaving the practice. Exactly. Exactly. It's not the.. Company's bank on people like us, like on everyone, right, forgetting to do that.  Exactly. “It's not a bug, it's a ‘feature'”!  [fml] There's a great episode of, uh, I think the first episode of a TV show on HBO or Showtime called House of Lies with Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell. Um, they talk about how they're going to, uh, uh, they're going to re revamp a big banks image. Uh, you know, that during the housing crisis, all these people lost their homes and the banks made billions they're going to revamp their image by. Uh, offering lone amnesty and that the CEO was like, absolutely not. And they said, no, you don't understand you, you, your normal DQ, like 90% of the people won't qualify. 8% of screw up in the application. Half a 4% will die. You know, you'll give out a couple hundred grand back, you know, and you accept the award of the year because they it's exactly the case. They don't expect us to follow through. And normally 910 times when we won't.  Yeah, I, um, I have the, I live in, I live in Philadelphia and, uh, the state of Pennsylvania has a website where you can go and see if you have any unclaimed funds. So this is like refunds from a doctor's office, that for whatever reason, they didn't prescribe it to your account. And so I have for, now that you're saying this is probably two or three years, had money sitting, waiting for me with the State of Pennsylvania. And the reason that I have not actually been able to claim it is because it involves printing out a form AND GETTING it NOTARIZED!?! And yes, getting this and then putting it in the Mail. And so I have to go through all of these extra steps and like, that's, I have several things that just don't happen because they have, I have to leave my house. I can't do it online. I have, um, I have some, I overpaid, uh, on medical expenses last year. Like I hit my out-of-pocket max. And so I have to submit forms to the insurance company, which can only be submitted by mail. There is, you can't scan it and send it to somebody. I have a friend who works with this insurance agency in the Social Media department. And I was like, what, what the hell is this? I know, I know it's just, it is the way that they operate. And so there is, there's a lot of money, not only that I've paid, um, because of this, but I think there's actually a lot of money that I'm owed, uh, that I haven't pursued because of this.  So what's the answer. I mean, what do we, you know, obviously I, you know, Hey Siri, remind me of this, or, Hey Siri, do this is, you know, Hey Alexa, do this, that is great. But there has to be, I mean, look, we're not gonna, we're not, the companies are going to certainly not going to do it. Right. So at the end of the day, what's the answer. Well, you say the companies aren't going to do it, but I think we forget how important a role activism is in the disability community and then neurodivergent community. So I think that part of this is going to be calling your Representatives and talking about the unethical practices of the people who are charging these fees, knowing that people who are neurodivergent people who have ADHD, people who have Autism are not able to meet the requirements in order to take advantage of the system. This system is calculated against these populations in the same way that there are systems that are calculated against Women and against People of Color against people in the Queer community. And so the more that we can raise visibility here, the more we can say, no, this is a real issue a nd it affects a lot, a lot of people. And I think since, you know, the DSM has been revised and the way that we see Autism has really expanded in the way that we see ADHD has really been expanded. It affects a lot more people than you realize. And to create that visibility so that the system works for us. I think we shouldn't, we shouldn't forget that we at least for now, live in a society where we have representatives met as part of their job. That's true. And we do have that at least for another few months. Um, but no, I, I think, and I think it's interesting because, you know, I, I keynoted, uh, disability, the first ever disability confrence  for Adobe, and it was a global conference, uh, you know, 10,000 people online, all from all around the world. And the one thing that I got the most feedback on was the fact that. You know, upwards of 15 to 25% of the workforce is going to be neurodivergent in the next 10 to 15 years. That's a massive number! Right. And if you're a company and you're not A. hiring for that, but B. understanding your audience.. you're going to lose. Right. That's very, very true. I wanna be respectful of your time. Give us a couple of hacks that work for you that allow you to, you know, obviously, obviously it's not, uh, not in terms of, uh, paying, paying your therapist bill, but give us other hacks that work for you and tell us what you've learned and the kinds of things that you do to prevent these things from happening.  So to prevent these things specifically. Um, as I said, I have an alert that goes off on my phone the first of every month I have, I'm a yoga teacher when I'm not doing the writing and, and also consulting on, on a content strategy for folks. But, um, I have a subscription to a service called Fabletics it's Kate Hudson's active wear line, and you get invoiced every, uh, I think the fifth of every month, so that you get your monthly credits to get more clothes. I have more yoga clothes than I could possibly need. And so right now I have an alert that comes up on my phone the first of every month. And I see it when I wake up in the morning and before I even get out of bed, I go to Fabletics and I tell it to skip this month. And so I think that those alerts, as long as we see them, as long as they come through at a time where we're likely to see them are really helpful. Now, if the first of the month is on a Saturday or a Sunday, and I'm sleeping in a little bit, it's not necessarily going to be at the top of my phone. So it's not a perfect system. But it does help. Um, I think other things that I've done are, you know, I, uh, I can't always rely on.. my husband is probably undiagnosed ADHD. He's got a lot of the same behaviors that I do. So I can't always rely on him to remind me to do some of these things, but what I can do is put something on our shared calendar that says, you know.. Six o'clock tonight we're going to get this thing. We're going to be making dinner. And it's going to say, talk about whatever this, this bill is that we need to figure out or talk about our taxes. Um, so, so it's really helpful just to have those, those things pop up on our phone. Now, that being said, I know that a lot of folks who are neurodivergent, who have ADHD turn off a lot of those alerts on their phones.  Right?  So one of the other systems that I used to do, I, I now I work all over my house, so this doesn't work as well for me anymore but when I always sat at my desk at the same place at my desk, every day, I put post-it notes on my computer screen of things that I needed to do. It's just around. The edge of the computer screen. And there's, there's something really satisfying about the tactility of- when you finish a task, taking that note off of your screen, tearing it up and throwing it away. Because it's more than just like clicking a box on your computer. There's actually something there that like, yes, I can do this. I can, I can get this done and I can actually feel getting it done, which a lot of us don't have when we work fully digitally. It's funny. My, I used to make fun of my mother when I was growing up,  because she had a black book and in her book were all of her contacts, but she also had a calendar and every year she'd replace it with a new calendar. And she'd write down all these tasks that were do on the day. And she, when she was done, she would spend upwards of 30 seconds crossing it out. And, you know, like, like crossing it out, like, like you're, you're the, uh, woman in Hamlet trying to get the blood out of..  That's Macbeth.. Ah Macbeth! That's what I meant. And I knew if anyone, if anyone would correct me on that'd be you!  But you know, like ripping the page as she crossed it out. And I always asked, Mom, why are you crossing so angrily?! She's like I'm not angry, I just did it! It's done! LOL And I totally get it now!  Um, you know, I, I praise these guys all the time. I have no connection to them other than the fact that they've saved my life many times www.FollowUpThen.com. Um, I I'm sure I've told you about before Jill. Follow up then.com is this free service where you create an account and then you send an email to any time period. I followed them,,,?So 10 minutes had followed them to come four hours about, then it comes Thursday, March 28th, 2023. It followed that and it will simply send it back, whatever you wrote in that email to you. And so, you know, on, uh, for your thing where you have to do your Fabletics. Um, I do the same thing with certain things that have to be paid or have to be looked at, you know, um, January 5th, February 5th, March, I send one email to all 12 months and every, every fifth of the month I get an email, Hey, check your subscription or whatever it is. So yeah, those kinds of things are, are, are game changers for people like us.  Absolutely. Um, I think, I think while the system doesn't work for us, it's up to us to figure out what we're able to do to kind of hack the system. So, so, you know, apps like that, uh, offerings like that, just make it a little bit easier to exist in the world that is not really always made for us. This was awesome. Jill, how can people find you? [http://www.jilletante.com also www.JillianIvey.com and on the @JillianIvey on all the socials except TikTok Twitter  INSTA  Pinterest  and Facebook] Uh, so a couple of ways I'm on social media, all, all platforms, except for tick-tock because I'm old and I still don't understand it, uh, at a, at Jillian, Jillian with a J and IVs IBE, Y um, I'm also, you can find me at Jillianivey.com. Most of my work is archived there so you can find the link to the Medium article that way. And I also, in my consulting work and I am at Jill Aton, like dilettantes. Spelled with two L's and one T because two L's and two T's looked weird. Uh, so Dillatant dot com. And I'm actually about to launch I an offering where I'm doing live story audits with people. So going through their website, kind of helping them to figure out whether there's story works live in the minute I send them a recording. And I find that this actually works really well with my ADHD, because I don't have to remember to do any followup work after I send them the recording. And that is that is it.  That's awesome. I, you know, that's funny. I never, for the life of me knew how to pronounce that until just now, haa! I love it. I love it.  Thank you so much for taking the time to be with us today.
