We are all unique. We have different life experiences, ways of thinking, and ways of learning. Connecting with people who share our life experiences and learning about people who do not is essential in acceptance, equity, and inclusivity within our communities.
Check out these three amazing podcasts that intersectional, neurodiverse content creators have created.

What is an intersecting identity? When a person has an intersecting identity, they belong to different identity groups. These groups include but are not limited to gender identity, race, class, and ethnicity.
NeuroQueering is hosted by Pasha Malowe, MFT, Neuroqueer/AuDHD coach, queer autistic, and ADHD woman. The podcast features creative, curious conversations with neurodiversity-affirming professionals to challenge, rethink, and reframe the systems and institutions to queer (disrupt, defy) neuronormativity and heteronormativity.
The Black Spectrum is hosted by Diane Laidlaw who shares an ADHD diagnosis with her son. The podcast features anonymous stories from black and brown communities about how individuals cope with their children’s or their own mental health or learning disabilities amidst cultural, religious, and social prejudice. Topics include symptoms, diagnoses, medication, education system, family dynamics, and what each of those labels means.
Clinical psychologist Monique Mitchelson and clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Michelle Livock host the Neurodivergent Woman Podcast. The podcast shares information on neurodiversity in girls and women, how to navigate the neurotypical world, and showcases women and their lived experience with neurodiversity.
