    To follow more of Scott's work he is on twitter @scottchadwick87 or follow us on twitter @alumnotyet or @pelagicjohnson or check us out on Facebook.

Hilarious and insightful look into the life of a PhD student

Love listening to the banter of Ellery and An, they have great rapport. They have a awesome range of guests who have some great insight into their research and the life of a PhD student. Wish I had this when I was doing my PhD

Would play out loud

Definitely putting this on the next time I manage to be in charge of the lab music!
