The Misophonia Podcast

Adeel Ahmad

Candid conversations with people who live with Misophonia. Misophonia is a disorder in which there is a strong sensitivity to certain sounds. A person with misophonia feels rage and an inability to focus on anything but that sound. It feels like a fight-or-flight response. Host Adeel Ahmad has misophonia and interviews other "misophones" from around the world. All episodes are edited to be more sensory-friendly including equalization and brown noise.

Theme music is "jltf" by Moby, courtesy of https://mobygratis.com The contents of this podcast should not be considered medical advice or therapy.

Jim is a self-published author in California. I’ve got tons of links to Jim’s work and other things we mention below in the show notes. Jim went the self-publishing route after some interesting office experiences. We talk about all that plus his misophonic saga with family throughout his life. Like many others this is the first time he’s really talked about it with someone so it’s always great to hear new stories and share knowledge in both directions.Links from Jim:My first book, If You Haven’t Seen It, It’s New to You: The Movies and TV Shows Some of Us Regretted Not Catching Until Later: https://amazon.com/dp/B08QWNW6HVMy Tumblr blog, Accidental Star Trek Cosplay: https://accidentalstartrekcosplay.tumblr.comMy Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/JimmyJAquinoThe Enterprise-D sleeping quarters ambient noise loop I play all the time in my headphones to my MacBook: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRCm1QhZ-jQThe Lofi Girl YouTube channel, which I’ve lately played in my headphones while writing: https://www.youtube.com/c/LofiGirlDJ Jazzy Jeff’s “Doing It for DILLA” mix: https://soundcloud.com/djjazzyjeff/dj-jazzy-jeffdoing-it-for-dillaMaple Media’s apps full of white noise and loops of calming sounds: https://maplemedia.io/soundsleep/The 1997 NewsRadio episode where I first learned about the existence of misophonia: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0787398/The old blog post of mine I mentioned, where I listed comedic eating scenes I thought were funny at the time (most of them still are), but I realize now that the sounds in those scenes might be too triggering for other misophonics: https://afistfulofsoundtracks.blogspot.com/2011/04/five-funniest-moments-of-unsettling-non.htmlDownload the official Misophonia Podcast app!For iOS and Android  Podcast episodes, background sounds, a trigger journal, a panic button, and tons of resources on all things miso.

S5E1 - Mary-Rachel
Welcome to an exciting season 5! Mary-Rachel is a casting director and producer in LA who had a miso-related breakdown following an MRI a few months ago. This conversation is a hilarious rollercoaster talking about miso and much more... growing up with miso in a well-known British family, being a single parent, life in LA, explaining it to parents, children, co-workers, and the often profanity-infused outbursts that come with the territory. This is a long one but worth it as I start the new season with a bang.

Claire G.
Claire has found ways to work with her family and significant other to help her deal with her misophonia. This episode is also special because Claire talks about her bipolar disorder and how it may or may not relate to her misophonia. A lot of us have other conditions in addition to misophonia so I hope that’s interesting to some of you.Interview slots are now open for season 5!

David
This week I’m talking to David in New Jersey. David reached out to me last year with a paper he wrote for a university course called Early Recognition of Misophonia: A Case for Preemptive Approach. In it, he surveys recent literature and therapies and argues for trying to identify misophonia and provide therapy before it has impacts on a child’s social and educational development. You’ll hear how this is very personal to David, because he himself was impacted by the way he was treated growing up trying to deal with his misophonia. We talk about cultural components, something called dialectical behavior therapy, breathing techniques, a number of things. We’ll talk about how all David’s thinking about misophonia has evolved over time after counseling and therapy and what it has meant for his family.

Martha
This week I have the pleasure of talking to Martha of @martharecoveringoutloud. This is a wild ride with great stories including: snapping at other kids eating, running into a street to yell at honking cab drivers, TJ Maxx (enough said), and throwing a bread basket in a restaurant with trigger sounds. And some of those are dating stories. Martha is a character who has received multiple applauses from strangers in NYC for her efforts to confront loud people. As a person who is also in recovery, she is also very active on Instagram supporting the sober community. You can find more information through her Instagram where you'll see Martha’s hilarious posts, her recovery podcast, sober apparel and a lot more.

Hazel - Tinnitus Talk
Hazel is the Director & Chief Strategist at Tinnitus Hub and Tinnitus Talk. She also has misophonia. A number of guests who’ve come on here have mentioned tinnitus so it was great to have Hazel talk about it from her perspective as a strong tinnitus advocate. We talk about what tinnitus is, how it feels to also have misophonia on top of it, and then we get into her activities advocating for tinnitus and share some lessons we can apply in the misophonia community to raise more awareness and research.  Links:  Tinnitus Hub Tinnitus Talk Forum Tinnitus Talk Podcast   Sponsor: My daughter launched a new podcast, The Animal Q&A Podcast.

Jennifer H.
Jennifer just found out about the podcast after going through what she describes as a “misophonia episode” in January. It got her to seek help in many places and she is now fortunately in a much better place. We talked about the effect of the pandemic on us, a year into it. We also go back deep into her past and her experiences as a child in a pretty chaotic family life and how she hid in her room a lot. We also talk about her many career paths and the various therapies she has used to help her get through since her episode at the start of the year.
