Finding and Embracing Your True Self with Grammy Award-winning artist Lecrae
On this episode of Supercharged Life, Dr. Judy has a candid and heartfelt conversation with LeCrae, two-time grammy award winning hip hop artist, activist and author of I Am Restored- How I Lost My Religion but Found My Faith. Despite his tremendous success, LeCrae feared revealing his true self to everyone in the world, including his own family. LeCrae discusses the struggles with addiction, depression, and anxiety as he fought for acceptance from the world after enduring physical, emotional, and sexual abuse before the age of 10, and how he ultimately found it in unexpected ways through stepping away from nonstop work and productivity, the major things that always brought him affirmation and self-worth. In an unprecedented step, Lecrae took a sabbatical from his music career and took the time to go to therapy despite the shame and stigma around seeking professional help. He details important lessons about effective healing practices and how he mended his relationships with his family to find real, unconditional love. If you need inspiration for self-compassion, starting anew after trauma and pain, or simply need a refresh on your mental health and wellness practices, this is an episode you don’t want to miss. Dr. Judy gives you five practical tools to discover your true self and move through life with conviction and authenticity.

Planning a postdoc before moving to industry? Think again
Experience as a postdoctoral researcher might not fast-track your career outside academia, Julie Gould discovers. Nessa Carey, a UK entrepreneur and technology-transfer professional whose career has straddled academia and industry, including a senior role at Pfizer, shares insider knowledge on how industry employers often view postdoctoral candidates. She also offers advice on CVs and preparing for interviews. “It is very tempting sometimes for people to keep on postdoc-ing, especially if they have a lab head who has a lot of rolling budget and who likes having the same postdocs there, because they're productive and they know them,” she says. “That’s great for the lab head. It’s typically very, very bad for the individual postdoc,” she adds. Carey is joined by Shulamit Kahn, an economist at Boston University in Massachusetts, who co-authored a 2017 paper about the impact of postdoctoral training on early careers in biomedicine1. According to the paper, published in Nature Biotechnology, employers did not financially value the training or skills obtained during postdoc training. “Based on these findings, the majority of PhDs would be financially better off if they skipped the postdoc entirely,” it concludes. Malcolm Skingle, academic liaison at GlaxoSmithKline, adds: “You really will get people who have done their PhD, they’ve done a two-year postdoc, they think they’re pretty much going to run the world and single-handedly develop a drug. “They have got no idea how difficult drug discovery is, and their place in that very big jigsaw.” “And why don’t postdocs get great salaries straightaway? Well, actually, they haven’t proven themselves in our environment, where, if they’re any good, then their salaries will go up quite quickly.”   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Listen to episode 246 I've had the great fortune of studying with some world-class musicians and jazz musicians over the years.  And I've learned so many lessons from these teachers that have not only impacted my jazz playing and the way I think about music but the way I actually think about life.

Finding the One (Therapist Who Gets You)
In this episode we hear from Ecaroh, a young Black woman who needs help finding a therapist who understands what she's going through. Carolyn consults with SELF’s Executive Editor Zahra Barnes, who has reported extensively on mental health in general, as well as mental health for Black people in particular. Zahra then speaks with psychologist Jennifer Mullan (@DecolonizingTherapy on Instagram) about the beauty of finding a therapist who understands your lived experience, what it means to decolonize therapy, as well as resources for those having trouble finding a therapist who can best serve their needs. For more information on Dr. Mullan, check out her website https://www.drjennifermullan.com/who-am-i and instagram @decolonizingtherapy    Here are some apps for self-care to try at home, made for and by Black people: Liberate is a subscription-based meditation app that includes practices and talks designed for the Black community. According to their website, they have curated content from 40+ BIPOC teachers with a diverse background in lineage, perspective and approach, so that everyone can find a practice in their voice. For self care tips, and great articles like, “How to talk to Black family members who may not want to understand mental illness” check out the app The Safe Place. You can also try the Shine app, Started by a Black woman and half-Japanese woman, Shine makes caring for your mental and emotional health a habit. You can learn self-care strategies and access an audio library of 800+ original meditations, bedtime stories, and calming sounds to help you shift your mindset or mood.   And for directories, community building, and words of encouragement, Zahra’s article: 44 Mental Health Resources for Black People Trying to Survive in This Country. If you’re thinking about teletherapy, here are some helpful tips from Zahra’s reporting: Try to create an environment at home that helps you focus on your session. When you go to therapy in person, your session is held in a therapeutic environment—this means no distractions, no loud noises in the background, no talking to other people.  Don’t let your virtual therapy sessions sneak up on you! Make the most of your session and carve out some time beforehand to think about what you’d like to talk about.  For more tips on how to make teletherapy work for you, check out SELF’s How to Actually Have a Successful Teletherapy Appointment.
