Welcome To The Show!

We are conquering the world one manic episode at a time!

I know that "neurodiverse",  "mental variances", and "mental health" may sound scary, but...



We discuss all types of neurodiversity and mental health topics and show the world that neurodiversity, while challenging, is a difference, not a deficit.

Science even agrees! Johns Hopkins, The National Library of Medicine, Harvard, Hewlett Packard, and more have published studies about the benefits of neurodiversity and the corresponding diagnosis.

Neurodiverse, or neurodivergent, simply refers to a medically visible or diagnosable difference in how the brain processes information. We celebrate these differences, as opposed to viewing them as deficits, as does the originator of the term neurodiversity, Australian Sociologist and Author, Judy Singer.


Disability is part of our journey. We must honor it, manage it, and advocate. Disability is not a bad word. It does not render us incapable or less than. We just have to accommodate and care for our disability.

This show is about support, education, removing stigmas, and celebration!

Each person in this community has a different manifestation, different challenges, and different gifts ("super powers"). Whether it is a manic phase allowing you to work at super-human speeds, Autism giving the gift of super analysis, Dyslexia driving creativity, or any of the other valuable neurodiverse traits, it is truly remarkable what this community contributes to the world. Just look at Alan Turing, Albert Einstein, Simone Biles, Gina Davis, Maya Angelou, Satoshi Tajiri, Barbara Corcoran, David Packard, and Richard Branson! 

Here, we embrace neurodiversity and know that while it may be a journey, it can lead to some pretty incredible contributions and innovations!

Please, join me and my incredible guests on this wonderful journey, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions, needs, or to join the show!

Meet The


I am your Host, Katherine McCord. In my day job, I am an entrepreneur fighting to rid the world of discrimination in the workplace through my company, Titan Management, and I am the COO for The Octopus Movement

As Super Mania, I am working to create positive associations with neurodiversity and mental health via podcasting, teaching, and international speaking engagements. I have spoken for SHRM, AIMS (United Nations and politicians), London School of Business, etc.

I have six invisible disabilities including three neurodiversity diagnosis: Bipolar, OCD, and Misophonia. Without my Bipolar manic phases and OCD, I do not think that I could have come so far or continue to grow so much. 

I am a proud neurodiverse woman, and I want to share our superpowers with the world!

We're back for Season Three!
