In this episode, Joe plays a brainy game with his guest Théa James. They call it Brain Injury Recovery Roulette. Joe asked the brain injury community on his socials for topics to choose from that he should discuss on the show and Thea and Joe then randomly selected one of the topics by rolling a virtual die on the spot to discuss in this episode. The random topic for this episode is overstimulation tips to help ease your nerves when you’re already overstimulated.
