the impostor syndrome episode prep

The imposter syndrome is real, and we’re here to talk about it.

I’d like to put out a call to all sound designers who want to contribute some thoughts to the next episode dealing with the imposter syndrome.

Here’s how to participate:

  1.  Choose a topic:
  • how industry or company culture influence creative insecurities
  • how attempts to avoid failure affect the odds of failure
  • comparing your own work to that of people with much more/less experience than you

2.  Grab a mic

3.  Collect your thoughts.  (srsly, don’t skip this)

4.  Introduce yourself

5.  Discuss for about 5-10 minutes.  This is both a long and a short length of time, so get to the heart of the issue quickly and dive in.

6.  email a link to

Submission deadline is midnight on March 31st.  (We reserve the right to edit submissions for length or to exclude submissions.)

I’ll make my own contribution and then create a compilation episode out of what we get from you guys.

This is a real opportunity to get right into something that we all struggle with.  Pick the subject that is the most difficult to discuss, and make your weakness into a strength!



No new episodes yet, but here’s something to keep you busy. This Sweedish guy named Wintergatan built a music machine using thousands of marbles. The end result is just amazing.

For more on this, check out the videos that show how he made it.
