Great Lab Listening

Love listening to this when I'm in the lab- it provide a great insight into life beyond the bench. This podcast shows the other side of science that you don't get to hear about too often.

A cut above science infotainment

This podcast is for anyone who wants to elevate a casual interest in scientific research to a human understanding of higher education. Dr. Higgins discusses important social and political topics that affect many people, but he and his guests explore them in the context of scientific research, i.e. how scientists, as people, navigate challenging societal problems and personal insecurities.

It's a British show, but U.S. listeners shouldn't shy away for fear of irrelevance. All of the social and professional nuances are the same. Dr. Higgins and his guests/collaborators are doing a great service to current and future academics worldwide, articulating something that doesn't quite make for a grabby, sensationalist headline: scientists are just people.

Fantastic podcast!

I love this podcast. It provides listeners with unique insight into the lives of scientists and the world of academia. Podcasts like these are rare and As an early career scientist, it can be incredibly helpful to listen to experienced individuals in the field.
