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).

Ep. 2:25 If You're a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) in Academia

Responding to a podcast member question, Karen and Kel talk about how to manage sensory overload in academic settings. We discuss how to extract yourself politely from overwhelming interactions-whether personal or professional (or in that weird academic way – both at the same time), and how to get familiar with your inner cues that you’re fast approaching overwhelm. Academia trains this kind of self-knowledge out of us, but you CAN get it back.

Ep. 2:26 Struggling with Imposter Syndrome? An Interview with Dr. Jane Jones

Are you struggling with Imposter Syndrome, or are the people in power continually making you feel like an imposter? Black women in particular are told in countless ways you don’t belong. Kel and Dr. Jane Jones from UpIn Consulting talk confidence and competence, especially among marginalized communities in academia.  Dr. Jones shares the things she’s found that work in fighting the confidence-sappers, remembering your true competence, and accessing your own power.   [Become a subscribing member for just $3.99 a month and get access to our subscriber only goodies like free webinar recordings, AMAs, the chance to suggest topics, access to the podcast video from our house in Oregon, and — new from this week – live videos with Karen and Kel on Friday mornings, all on our dedicated podcast member page on Mighty Networks!
