Really enjoying it so far
I'm enjoying this podcast so far. There's great chemistry between the podcasters and they talk about topics relevant to my interests as a scientist, psychologist, and academic. I can't wait to see what else they come up with.
Inside Baseball for the Psychologist
This podcast features three smart, compassionate psychologists discussing issues related to being a researcher. They talk about the pressures of academic life, critiques of psychological research, and how to be a human in a job that is complex and often overwhelming. The whole podcast feels like having a chance to get a beer with thoughtful leaders in the field--and then having them open up to you completely about their hopes, dreams, and insecurities. If you are a psychologist, I highly recommend it. If you are not a psychologist, but know one or are curious about what it is like to be one, I highly recommend it. If you are a goat, I do not recommend it. There is very little goat-related content.
Essential for students
