S5E2 - Jim
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.

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.html
