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.

Encouraging to hear interviews with others suffering the same as me.
I never review podcasts, but I really loved the Dr. Marsha Johnson episode of this podcast. I find the research and findings of Misophonia so fascinating!! I like hearing from other people with Misophonia as well, but would love more episodes like this one that delve into the history of discovering the disorder and scientific discoveries surrounding it. Thank you so much for helping fight the fight to bring awareness to Misophonia and help us feel a little less alone.
I can’t bear listening to it.
Irony of ironies, this podcast triggers my misophonia more than any other except Joe Rogan or those Youtube whisper videos. The host drones in a monotone and uses something called “brown noise.” I can barely tolerate more than 10 minutes. It’s incredibly boring. The guests tell their life stories mostly a litany of noises they hate and the problems it has caused. The few episodes I’ve tried to play have been boring, non-informative and not helpful. The guests usually have disturbing vocal tics that are heightened by the lack of anything interesting to say. (Think Emily Bazelon without an interesting mind.) I think it might be better to read about this subject or perhaps provide some help to sufferers. Maybe there is a technique of increasing tolerance with exposure, deep breathing or meditation (I just made that up. I don’t know if this disorder, or any treatment, has been studied.) I have my hand at the ready on any digitally reproduced audio, in the event someone makes mouth sounds. (Eating and especially eating and talking at the same time). This is why I watch old movies. They had sound editors to REMOVE instead of add distracting, unpleasant noise.
