Dr. Steven Merahn thinks there is an academic medicine secret handshake.

He also thinks peer review is a biased gate-keeper of ideas. It’s all part of “respectability politics”.

He says, “Who gets to tell their story? Who’s allowed to tell their story?”

A relevant quote I shared during this episode is one by Maya Angelou:

“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”
