Window into Academics

This does a good job showing that all academics aren’t sitting in an ivory tower stoking their beard. I really enjoy the perspective!

Filling an Informational Void

An amazing forum through which both graduate students and higher education professionals can remain informed and avoid a complacency that is often found in the academy. This podcast fills a void in a niche that I have not previously seen addressed via podcasts. A+
