Correction from Michael Chan (11/30)
This episode has been edited from its original release on November 26th.
In the original version, I made insensitive comments about someone I deeply respect.
It was far too casual a comment for this show and steeped in envy.
I've reached out to those that my biases most directly harmed.
With their guidance and permission — we have edited both the audio and description of this episode for the benefit of future listeners.
I am ashamed that my words caused harm to friends, colleges, and listeners of this show.
I am committed to learning from this mistake and continuing to work toward the welcoming show listeners and guests deserve.
