How it works

The ADHD Aha! production process begins with a 15-minute interview between the host and the potential guest. If a guest is confirmed, our production director works with the guest to schedule a one-hour recording session. All recordings can be done remotely. We ship an audio kit to any guest who doesn’t already have a USB mic and headphones to use during the recording. Most of our recordings are audio-only. But sometimes, we invite guests to record video as well. The video element is always optional. All guests are required to sign a release form.
