Have you ever experienced impostor syndrome? Meta-impostor syndrome (everyone else just has impostor syndrome but you're right about yourself)? We talk about mental health and all the ways you can feel terrible as an academic. In our opening segment we discuss Alexa's brush with a misconduct case, Simine's new article on how journal articles are like new cars, and a reviewer getting in trouble for wanting to see data. And in our letter of the week, what do you do when a reviewer tells you to HARK?
