Have you ever felt like a fraud? That you don't belong in the room? That you could get found out at any moment? You're not alone. Each week on Imposters, Claire Cohen meets a woman at the top of her game and finds out how she defeated imposter syndrome to get there.
Today’s guest is the most exceptional woman you’ve never heard of. As NASA’s first female chief flight director, Holly Ridings is responsible for all of the agency’s spaceflight operations - a job they certainly don’t teach you at school. She tells Claire Cohen how she stays calm when other people’s lives are in her hands, why she uses visualisation techniques to combat imposter syndrome and whether she ever wishes she was in the capsule being propelled into space.
