This week’s podcast episode is an “Asher Special,” in which Asher answers listener questions. In our conversation, we talk about everything from how Asher feels about having ADHD and what helped him get through the difficult transition of moving abroad when he was nine years old to what he thinks are the qualities of a good teacher, how he keeps track of his schoolwork, and much more. And as he does in most conversations I have with him, Asher schools me as well, as he lets me know I’ve been using the word “euphemism” wrong for all these years. #Noted.
I hope you enjoy the episode, and if you have other things you’d like to hear from Asher on, or have ideas for themes you’d like us to devote a full Asher Special episode to, you can always email me at anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
