with Annie Crowe

 "The Princess and the Pea" is a classic fairy tale about a prince who is searching for a true princess to marry. One stormy night, a young woman arrives at the prince's castle claiming to be a princess. The queen is skeptical, so she devises a test to determine if the young woman is truly a princess.

The queen places a pea at the bottom of the young woman's bed and then covers it with twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds. The next morning, the queen asks the young woman how she slept, and she complains of being uncomfortable and not getting any rest due to feeling something hard in the bed. The queen is convinced that the young woman is a true princess, as no one but a true princess could have such delicate sensitivity.

The prince is overjoyed that he has finally found a true princess and asks for her hand in marriage. They live happily ever after, and the pea is put on display in the castle as a reminder of the young woman's sensitivity and her true princess status.

This was Annie's nickname growing up.

In a world where sensitivity is often seen as a negative trait, this podcast is about embracing your sensitivity, neurodivergence and connecting with your community!

If you are an Autistic ADHD adult or support us then this podcast is for you.

Each episode, Annie talks to incredible neurodivergent humans (and the occasional neurotypical) about their experiences and thoughts on many topics of ND life, in the hopes of promoting understanding and accessibility for all neurodivergent individuals.

For me, your development is personal!

After struggling to find my voice for years, I finally decided to do something about it. What started as a quest for answers just made me end up with even more!

I knew I was different from a very young age, I just couldn't work out why.

Finding out I was an Autistic ADHD twice exceptional human was a huge turning point in my journey to live a better life. One where I wasn't constantly stressed, traumatised or burnout.

Now, I have the privilege of helping neurodivergent adults re-build their lives and connect with their neurodivergent identity to find peace, self-acceptance and most of all accessibility.

I listened to all the episodes in one day! Great content, covers many relevant topics of the time, and love it's Australian so in the Aussie context.



Thanks Annie for this podcast. I am an OT starting work in this area and hoping to specialise in supporting adult ND women, so your humourous, articulate and thought-provoking episodes are incredibly helpful!

I can’t begin to express the deep transformation that occurred in every aspect of my life
