I’d recommend this podcast to any current or prospective graduate students- the speakers always keep the topics fresh and interesting.
My only complaint is that while there were two episodes about finding non-academic jobs after grad school, there hasn’t been anything yet about pursuing postdoctoral positions/tenure track positions. That’s something I’d like to hear about!!
It is a friendly and helpful podcast.
This is a great podcast to let you peek into other people's phd life, from different school, from different background, their story and most importantly valuable experience!
As an international student, there exists an isolation in grad school, you go to the other side of the earth alone, learn culture, take classes, start to conduct and present research in different language, try hard to eliminate accent, learn how to do jokes in different culture, try to deal with the ignorant and arrogant from people sometimes, just to fit in. So I am glad that I found this podcast when I was struggling through those things, questioning myself why am I doing this Ph.D. stuff. It is a friendly and helpful podcast.
Keep up the good work!
A nice view of the non-school side of grad school
Great podcast that addresses the aspects of grad school outside of the actual research. It's like having friends sit witrh me and chat while I'm at the scope or sectioning embryos.
Keep up the fine work!
