Creative Ops | Ep41 | Christopher Tallon: Imposter or Bad Motherf**ker? Creative Ops

Creative people (if not all people) deal with imposter syndrome. I talked to Alexis Flakes about it for next week's episode and it really got me thinking. I wrote a blog about it the other day (on wwww.christophertallon.com/blog) and decided to continue the trend here on this: the podcast for creative people, by creative people. Find out about imposter syndrome, what it looks like, where it comes from, and a few strategies to help you stay calm and keep creating. . . . There's some original music by yours truly, a little music from last week's interview with Joe from The Legal Immigrants, and a tiny snippet of my next guest. Hope to see you back for that one. . . . Good people of Ontario, Canada. I meant to say Thanks eh! on the show and forgot. Lots of love to the Canadian listeners. (Michigan is so close that I consider us cousins!)

Andrew “Drew” Smith is my old friend and fellow former educator. We both taught for half a decade or so before venturing into different careers. However, our training–both in content and in pedagogy–prepared us surprisingly well for our chosen paths.

Listen as we discuss our best and worst memories, how teachers REALLY talk in the teachers’ lounge (sadly, it’s always very good), and what it was like for Drew as an intern trying to teach non-English speaking refugees who were illiterate in their native language and never received formal education. (Amongst other things.)

I mentioned the book EXPLORE/CREATE by , and I highly recommend it.

Thanks for listening.
