For some of us, imposter syndrome is an anxiety generator. 

It goes to the heart of feeling worthy, being competent or having the right to be in a particular space.
Doing this episode made me feel like an imposter. I can hear slurred words, tangents and howlers of editing. 
But here is the thing.  I don't allow it to keep me from trying and doing. Sure, I could not do the show. Or hire and editor. Or let a freaking non-human try to emulate my speech patterns. 
I need to do this in order to get better. And it might take another eight years for that to happen. I have the time.
