A disturbing journey into your worst imposter syndrome nightmare. Also, a comedy.

“Im·pos·tor syn·drome. Noun. The sneaking suspicion that you are an intellectual sham. Paranoia that others will discover you are a pretender. Repeated failure to believe your success is earned. Unless, of course, it isn’t earned. Unless you cheated and lied. That would make you an actual imposter, wouldn’t it…. Professor Crawford? That’s right, I know. I’m going to make sure everyone knows.”
