We invite our producer Angelina Coccimiglio to join us as we take a look back on the first season of Impostercast. We open up about our trials and tribulations (and anxiety) in starting this podcast and share some personal experiences in feeling like imposters ourselves. We are grateful to our listeners this season for having our backs and supporting our vision. We look forward to bringing even more stories of courage and vulnerability to your ears in our next season launching in November. Until then, see you soon Imposters! (P.S. Listen beyond the credits for a little gem...).
On this episode, we speak with Adam "Smiley" Poswolsky, a millennial career expert. He helps people find meaningful work to fuel their own personal breakthrough. To that effect, he's releasing The Quarter-Life Breakthrough on October 4 across North America. We have a candid conversation about the fears going into a major book release, his journey becoming an author, the impact of the imposter feelings we all share, and how we can punch beyond them.
On this episode, we have a conversation with the fascinating Kim Nicol exploring how she trusted herself to abandon a career in law and pivot to become a meditation and mindfulness teacher and author. Kim depicts what it felt like to be building a career in a field that felt untrue for her and how she listened to her intuition to refocus the value she could provide to others.

And we'll let her explain what's happened since...
In this episode, we have a candid discussion with Matthieu Aikins, a journalist who immerses himself in the Middle East and South Asia, about his journey as an imposter and the power and privilege that can arise within relationships when you are pretending to be someone that you are not. We then dig deeper with clinical social worker and therapist Katerina Alexopolous on her journey in managing this dynamic in her work as a therapist and explore what happens when you can bring authenticity into these interactions.
