Emily Prokop: Analysis paralysis and intermittent fasting

Women & ADHD

Episode 13: Emily Prokop. "I absolutely love my hyper focus as long as I can harness it." Emily is a speaker, author, podcaster, and journalist. She’s been podcasting since 2015 and a podcast listener even longer. She has two podcasts: The Story Behind, which was nominated for a Webby Award in 2019 and has since turned into a best-selling book, and Hate to Weight where she and her cohost discuss their weight loss journeys together. In addition to all this, Emily became a podcast editor and consultant in 2017, and helps podcasters start their shows and continue podcasting. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, two kids, and two cats. Emily was diagnosed 7 years ago at the age of 30, and we talk about the symptoms she had as a girl that went unnoticed.  We also talk about the tendency to “over study” which leads to analysis paralysis, as well as the importance of structures and systems to harness all those idea gnats that are constantly buzzing around your head. Emily shares how she got into podcasting (spoiler alert: it was a hyperfocus) and it will come as no surprise that most podcasters she has encountered and worked with also have ADHD. TRIGGER WARNING: We talk about her weight loss journey, intermittent fasting, and scale numbers are mentioned. If you have a history with an eating disorder or disordered eating, you’ll want to skip this interview.

Odd Dad On Fire- AKA Talking Shop w/ Emily Prokop: ODO 150

Odd Dad Out

May’s guest of the month is one of my oldest podcast friends. She’s a podcaster, podcast editor, consultant, and author. From The Story Behind, Hate to Weight, and E-Podcast Productions, it’s Emily Prokop.I really didn't know where this "interview" was gonna go. But, Considering we are both passionate about podcasting and are podcast editors, I should have expected we would have spent so much time talking shop. What can I say? You put a couple of podcast editors together and all we can talk about is plugins and breath noises. We gripe about people who want the "podcast franchise" handed to them. Also, we discuss some of our favorite podcasters. What would happen if Apple made a podcast creation app? The difference between Apple vs Android users in podcasting, and why I can't go to the She Podcasts Live conference. Of course there's also Emily's podcast recommendation, "Girl In Space."Find Emily athttp://thestorybehindpodcast.com/https://www.epodcastproductions.com/http://hatetoweight.com/Emily’s RecommendationGirl In Spacehttps://www.girlinspacepodcast.com/"Abandoned on a dying ship in the farthest reaches of known space, a young scientist fights for survival (and patience with the on-board A.I.).
