Highly irreverent, wholly lovable Nicole Falls joins me to discuss imposter syndrome, how gifted and talented programs destroyed us, having the privilege to explore creative, personally fulfilling projects and the concessions we make to prioritize those projects, Danielle Steel's desk, incorporating the pandemic into contemporary romance, plant puns and plant bae, and how quickly and often people forget that not everyone has their worldview.

- Imposter Syndrome: American Psychological Association article that goes over the basics and some actionable ways to address it.
- Gifted and Talented programs. Whoo boy.
- Here's a study trying to prove if G&T programs have benefits for those in the programs using test scores. But what Nicole and I talk about is more about the long-term psychological impact of G&T expectations.
- This Bustle article does a good job summarizing various studies, and links to them if you want to dig deeper.
- It's also important to note that the way G&T programs are implemented often promote inequality. This is a topic that was covered in episode 03 of Nice White Parents, an excellent new podcast focused on inequality in public education using New York City public schools as case studies.
- Here's a completely unscientific article about using the bathroom in front of your partner. I tried to find some quantitative data on this, but mostly found message board questions and shamey listicles. Someone please get the social scientists on this important topic, stat. Romancelandia needs to know.
- I used $50/hour as a high example to illustrate how when one CAN do something obviously more profitable, it can be logically hard to prioritize something that's relatively unprofitable. Unfortunately that's not the option most people are weighing against.
