If your lectures and professional publishings are half as entertaining and insightful as your Medium writing, it’s difficult to imagine you’re not an amazing professor and well deserving of a tenure bid.
It’s always unfortunate to see how many terrible bosses have inexplicably found themselves in undeserved positions of authority. Worse when they transition from general ineffectiveness to actively hindering people’s careers.
You’re smart and incredibly talented. I have no doubt that you’ll be successful in whatever career you decide to pursue, whether it’s continuing in academia or something else entirely.
I wish you all the best in whatever direction you decide.
