Very Helpful!

This podcast gives so much great insight into the many realms of psychology, both professional and non-professional. I’ve found every episode so useful as an undergrad psych major who is seeking advice and trying to narrow down my career options!

NOTHING ELSE OUT THERE LIKE THIS

The psychology path from undergrad to graduate school and beyond is so niche and so confusing. there are a million different options to choose from and once you choose an option, there is nothing on google that can tell you specific info!!! i have attended many sessions at my university conerning grad school in psychology and in one podcast i have learned so much more than all those sessions combined. i would be totally lost without psych mic. Godbless you Maya.... everyone needs to know about this pod, straight up.

I LOVE this podcast!

If you are a Psychology student this is the best podcast you will find! It is packed full of the information you have been looking for. Every episode has something insightful that will be helpful to you. Maya does a great job by asking questions and keeping the content moving. She has inspiring people share their stories and give great advice.
As a student myself I know there is precious little free time in a day, however, this is totally worth every minute you give it. I listen while I’m on the train to school, while doing laundry or dishes or just whenever I feel like I want a little outside focus.
Thank you Maya for this wonderful resource!
