Today we are discussing the short story “Good Old Neon” by David Foster Wallace. We take a deep dive into imposter syndrome, what it means to truly be a fraud, and the importance we put on how others view us. 

We also correlate the story with the current state of social media and the constant need people have to be seen and heard, often through the sacrifice of their authentic selves. Finally, Caleb breaks down why he believes actor Kelsey Grammer is ultimately responsible for the death of David Foster Wallace.
