Journals and editors are adopting innovative new ways to evaluate and disseminate work: We talk about the Pottery Barn Rule for replications, badges, open access and more. Also: Is there wisdom on social media? And in our letter of the week, who will fill the hole in your heart when you don’t have an advisor any more?

Episode 1: Everything is awesome!

Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Black Goat! Our main topic is: How do you stay optimistic when everything seems fucked? But before that, we kick things off talking about who we are and why we are here. And we respond to our letter of the week, which asks how personally invested you should be in your research topic and whether it needs to be me-search.
