Jason Barr (@BARRR) is a visual artist based in Lawrence, KS and the host of The A.D.D. Podcast. We sat down and discussed his time playing in rock bands during college, how he found his style as a visual artist, and how his podcast has evolved over the last several years. We also dug into some of his favorite broadcasters, how Jason pissed people off while writing for Lawrence.com, and what it was like working in the media during the rise of emo and indie rock.

One day while I was at work, I randomly starting searching for podcasts relating to Lawrence, KS to see if there was anyone else out there pursuing this unique form of media. And surely enough, I found the A.D.D. podcast with Jason Barr. I then discovered a plethora of amazing new information about the city that I live in, and was fortunate enough to have Jason over for a really fun conversation about his life.
