I Failed Orals: An Honest Chat about the PhD Process (8/24 Livechat)

For more than 15 years, I've kept a secret from everyone but my dearest friends and family: I failed my PhD Orals Exam. 

Even after landing a job, publishing books, tenure, and promotion to Full, I've never had the confidence to speak openly about this... until now. 

In this livechat, let's have an honest discussion about the ups and downs of getting a PhD, especially the most anxiety-ridden milestone of them all.
