On May 29th, 2020,  I woke up at around 3am, as usual, and checked out Twitter. Tweets were all about the riots that happened the night before. I couldn’t go back to sleep. I needed to do something. I needed to do a show about this. I needed to make my voice heard.

Podcasting is all about storytelling – one reason why I love it so much. But what was the story I was going to tell here? I didn’t want it to be a news-type of episode where I blabbered off facts and numbers and the typical lines. I wanted to make a difference, in my own way and to make people realize how long this has been happening.

I thought back to the days when I was obsessed with learning everything I could about Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. They were my guys. I thought of this one time when I was talking to my dad and how I said that I felt safer in the world knowing that Malcolm and Martin made it better for me and my family.

This is the story I wanted to tell. It won me a runner-up prize in a contest last year sponsored by Rode Microphones.

So, here it is, again for you because we need to be reminded. Here is the Rinse episode from 2020, We Shall Overcome.

Misophonia and the Hatred of Sound http://shanefame.com/2021/04/10/misophonia-and-the-hatred-of-sound/ http://shanefame.com/2021/04/10/misophonia-and-the-hatred-of-sound/#respond Sat, 10 Apr 2021 22:05:34 +0000 http://shanefame.com/?p=563 Misophonia and the Hatred of Sound Read More »

Welcome to the second season of Rinse. Short impactful episodes focussing on health, wealth, and self.  We kick off the second season by looking at Misophonia. Not very many people know about it. Can someone actually hate sounds? What happens when they hear these dreadful sounds and why do they have these reactions? Shane takes a deep dive as he suffers from it too.


If you would like to help Shane with his virtual Walk and Talk for Mental Health on May 29th, check out his official team page here
