Distraction was listed on iTunes as #1 in the Self-Help category and #8 in the Health category. It already has drawn thousands of listeners.

CRN International, longtime leader in audio marketing, today unveiled the second episode of its successful “Distraction” podcast series following an epic launch week for its new Collisions podcast division.

The company also introduced “The Car and Driver Podcast,” a collaborative series with the editors of automotive publishing leader Car and Driver magazine that cracked iTunes’ New and Noteworthy section even before it was formally announced.

"Distraction" explores how people easily lose focus in our over-connected, crazy-busy world and offers strategies to turn these modern problems into new-found strengths. It is hosted by Dr. Edward (Ned) Hallowell, a New York Times best-selling author and leading child and adult psychiatrist best known for his groundbreaking books, Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction, which have sold millions of copies. He has appeared on numerous national television programs including 60 Minutes, Oprah, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, 20/20 and Dr. Phil. He has been interviewed in The New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Time, U.S. News and World Report, and many other leading publications.

At a point last week, “Distraction” was listed on iTunes as #1 in the Self-Help category and #8 in the Health category. It already has drawn thousands of listeners.

In the second episode of “Distraction,” Dr. Hallowell shares his own journey with listeners about his not-so-typical childhood, his own ADHD and what makes him an authority in the Age of Distraction.
