Podcast - Academia could use a like button (BA #12)

In this audio blog, I rant about the structure of feedback in academia. I discuss how this affects confidence, a moment that defined my views about feedback, my proposed way to better let people know what they're doing well and how to improve, and why I think getting no positive feedback is a nonsensical and counterproductive approach among talented groups of people.
