Loving it in grad school

This podcast started when I was in my late stage of grad school. It is interesting, so friendly, and fun & informative!

I love how the hosts advocate for open science / fairness / rigor, but also don’t take the moral high ground about it and encourage people to do the right thing within their abilities. I also love when Simine challenges Alexia and Sanjay sometimes to take a more critical stance. These discussions help me make sense of the open science and replicability movement and my role in it.

Also really appreciated the episodes about friendship, me-research, year in review, etc. many times I need a reminder that being a human being comes before being an academic.

Loved episodes on creativity, measuring behavior, etc! Like a lab chat but so stimulating!

Informative and Fun listening

As a psychology undergrad approaching graduate school applications and decisions about my future in the field, I've found the information in this podcast helpful. I've gained some great insight into what it's like to work in academia and what I might expect to experience as a grad student. The tone of this podcast is also fun and doesn't take itself too seriously which makes it all the more enjoyable.
