So technically I’m supposed to be on “hiatus” from the podcast while I finish my book. But I just couldn’t stay away from you. Especially when I’ve just recorded an interview on a topic that so many of you have said you wanted to know more about.
When I first talked about misophonia (the hatred of sound) on Episode 30 with Ashlae Warner, I got tons of messages from listeners saying they felt such relief knowing they weren’t alone in either experiencing misophonia themselves or having to deal with someone who had it. So when I saw there was a new documentary about it, I knew I had to get the filmmaker (Jeffrey S. Gould) on the pod to give us the full scoop on this condition…and share everything he learned while making the film.
Jeffrey and I discuss what misophonia is and isn’t; how sufferers deal with the anger, sadness, and guilt that comes with the condition; how his own sensitivities to sound led him to create his new film, Quiet Please; his tips on creating coping mechanisms; and why he says the grocery store can turn him into Charles Manson.
