Useful, informative, wide-ranging show

It's great that they get a wide variety of perspectives on non-academic careers. As a graduate student, it often feels unclear how to get insight on switching careers. There's a wealth of good advice here. I feel optimistic!

Valuable information

I love that you can hear career advice in this podcast that you might otherwise never get. This should be required listening for all grad students thinking about their career possibilities.
