8: This Episode is a Mistake

In an effort to reckon with this week’s topic of imposter syndrome, we present to you our UNEDITED audio of our recording. Anything could happen! We’ve got plenty of stories about  how it feels to doubt yourself, even if you have proven to yourself that you can do all the things (00:02:18). Imposter syndrome is a downer, but we point out how unfounded it can be. For Mistakes in News (00:34:59), we get back into one of Rose McGowan’s upcoming lawsuits against a famously horrible man, and how larger, systemic mistakes get to continue. For our mistakes of the week, Melissa and Taekia are both thinking about how to get their arms around constantly shifting projects (00:42:41).

7: Faking It

Get ready for some singing and a hardcore lesson on how to act. Melissa asks Taekia to teach her how to keep her emotions in check, when it’s necessary. There are times when it behooves you not to cry out loud. Melissa and Taekia consider why it’s important to pay attention to what kind of people you’re dealing with. Also, we finally explain the ducks and the quacking! As usual, we run through Mistakes in the News, our mistakes of the week, and self-care go-tos.
