Marcia and I have good news and bad news . . . we will give you the bad news first:

Because we got so many questions, we weren’t able to ask them all of Dr. Tuckman. Marcia had lots of amazing questions come via the webcast, and I had questions emailed to me ahead of time. They were all great questions, but time was against us. If your question didn’t get answered, we are sorry.

The other piece of bad news is that at around 50 minutes into the call, our lines went dead. This has never happened before, so we aren’t sure of the cause. If you were on the call, we apologize for the time it took us to get back up again, and we thank you for hanging in with us. We were able to splice the recordings together, thankfully, so you don’t have to listen to two separate audios!

Bet you are wondering what the good news is? Well, there are 3 pieces:

1.) Having Dr. Tuckman around for an hour was very informative. When you listen to the recordings you will learn TONS!

2.) Don’t feel sad if you didn’t get your exact question answered. Dr. Tuckman gives very detailed answers, so your questions will probably get answered indirectly.

3) Dr. Tuckman agreed to come back for a second interview very soon!

Executive functioning is clearly a hot topic, so start listening now!!
