Sensitive and Serious!

This is a wonderful podcast - a joy to hear the stories of scientists and their adventures. Whilst I struggle through the first step in my career as an independent researcher, it is really inspiring to hear the careers and experiences of others.

Interesting conversations

It is a fascinating podcast, though not exclusively on academia, most interviews are with people who are in or very closely associated with it. Well produced.

A great perspective

As someone who has just recently a post-doc, I have found the interviews on the show really informative. Stuart managed to tease out a lot of useful details from people and it's nice to hear the about the human side of fellow researchers - both the ups and the downs!
