Genuine Life Saver

I’ve spent the last three days driving down the west coast to start my PhD at UCLA, and I’ve spent 90% of that drive listening to Hello PhD. Josh and Dan have so many practical tips and pieces of advice that really make you feel prepared for grad school and remind you of what to focus on as you pursue it. Beyond grateful to have run across this podcast.
