[The Knowledge Project Ep. #163] Jason Karp: Live A Healthier Life
Shane: Let’s start with your childhood. You were a bit of a misfit, spending a lot of time on video games and card counting and building weapons and playing with wire. Tell me more about these years.
Jason: I grew up in a kind of middle class, maybe slightly upper middle class, area of northwestern Connecticut, [in] a small town called Avon. The successful people were doctors and lawyers. There was no real business or entrepreneurial culture or finance that you typically would see in cities like L.A. or New York. I had a few different undiagnosed health issues as a kid that really shaped, I think, who I was and how I behaved. I had pretty severe undiagnosed ADHD, which I now know … runs in my family. My children both have different variations of this, and so now I’ve had to become a lot more aware of these different mental differences. And especially watching my children, it’s become very clear that I had a lot of this.
