    New episode of The Lit Review podcast is out!
    To kick off our 2nd season, we have *two* fantastic guests : Angelica Leigh (Duke U) and Shimul Melwani (UNC), co-authors of the 2022 Best Paper published in Academy of Management Journal, entitled, "Am I Next?" The Spillover Effects of Mega-Threats on Avoidant Behaviors at Work". (
    In our conversation, we discuss the phenomenon of Mega-Threats and how they impact behaviors at work (including one that affected all three of us recently). I also talk with them about their experiences working on a topic with so much emotional and social heft, as well as their views on the ongoing debate about the role of race as we study organizations a.k.a. "Naming The Thing".

    Thank you!
