Show Notes

We talk Imposter Syndrome: what it is, why we get it, how to overcome it. We talk about gendered messages, structural racism, and being told you don’t belong; ie: it’s not Imposter Syndrome if they’re always treating you like an imposter. We ask why it so often intensifies precisely when you experience professional success, like […]

Episode 3:1 Coming Back from Isolation

Karen and Kel are back from their summer hiatus, and they talk re-entry. Re-entry, that is, to a shitshow academic year in a pandemic that, in the US, has been mismanaged to a degree that almost defies belief.  Academics are coming back to campuses that are for the most part totally unprepared and unwilling to deal with actual student and staff vulnerabilities to COVID-19, and confronting a level of lethal indifference from many administration and students both that has shocked even the most jaded among us (ie, Karen). Drawing from a re-entry model developed by an Australian academic, Karen and Kel talk about ways that administrators can improve re-entry processes, and ways that vulnerable and burnt out faculty and grad students can think about how best to proceed.

Episode 18 – Don’t Lie

Recorded prior to the COVID19 outbreak, this episode takes up the question of dishonesty in academia. From the temptation to pad your CV, to misrepresenting your research results, there are many places large and small where the potential to lie arises. Karen and Kel talk about why you must not. Not just because of ethics and bad karma, but because it usually comes back to bite you in the ass. ...

Episode 2.10 – Rest is Radical

Recorded while in the middle of catastrophic Oregon fires, this episode departs from advice to talk about coping with the present moment. Instead of lamenting “2020,” Karen and Kel talk about “leaning in” to the discomfort and trauma of our present reality: that all of this misery is the direct result of cause and effect–the logical outcomes of unfettered capitalism, greed, racism, and social abandonment. Coping with the present moment means both ceasing to fight or deny reality, as well as embracing joy and rest wherever it can be found. With inspiration from the teachings of Pema Chodron and the Nap Ministry, we remind listeners and ourselves that creative action (whether its a side hustle, coping with an impossible daily schedule, or agitating for political transformation) can only come from a rested mind. ...
