Dr. Lindsay Padilla explores the academic and business lives of her guests, and how these two identities shape one another. Each episode traces the story behind their choices, the challenges they faced, and the mindset it takes to start a business (whether on the side or to leave academia for good). If you've ever felt bound by the walls of your institution, then you'll want to listen to these stories of your fellow academic misfits who are using their knowledge to build profitable businesses.
