We (Julia and Jonathan) happen to be academics and also happen to be psychologists studying speech perception. We want to make awesome science, make science awesome, and share what we’ve learned with a broad audience. In The Juice and the Squeeze, we peel apart issues in our careers and beyond (e.g., prioritizing, imposter syndrome, motivation, and more).

    Episode 26: Online teaching

    Julia and Jonathan have been thinking a lot about online teaching. Not claiming to be experts they share what’s worked well and what they are excited about for the coming term. Office hours? Casual interactions? Small group discussions? We’ve got ideas for you. Bonus: hear how Julia learned about controlled burns (yes, it’s related).

    Episode 25: Applying for a professor job at a small liberal arts college (SLAC)

    Interested in what a job at a small liberal arts college (SLAC) is like? Julia shares about her job (spoiler: she likes her job just a little) and offers advice on things to consider when applying for a similar job. Pssst: teaching experience helps. (And, follow-up reply to an email where the hosts reject a listener’s suggestion that it is entirely their fault they have a difficult relationship with their advisor.)

    Episode 24: Virtual conferences

    With many (all?) conferences online for the foreseeable future, Julia and Jonathan talk about the pros and cons of online conferences, using SIPS (which Julia just attended) as a jumping off point.

    Episode 23: When the going gets tough

    Turns out, life isn’t always easy. Julia and Jonathan explore some ways that we can help ourselves, and others, when we are going through difficult times (academic and otherwise), including the importance of modeling dealing with disappointment for our trainees (and colleagues) and having a network of people to turn to for support.

    Episode 21: Congratulations, you are now a Mentor!

    Episode 21: Congratulations, you are now a Mentor!

    Mentoring is one of those things in life that is super important but that most of us don’t get much training about. Julia and Jonathan talk about how mentees can seek out effective mentors (understanding everyone differs in their flexibility), and things mentors can do to be more helpful. And a friendly reminder that you’re never to young to have a mentor, or to be a mentor.

Academic career perspectives

Practical insights and advice for academics of all ages (college students through faculty), presented in an easy to listen, lighthearted yet focused conversation. Feels like taking an extended coffee break with a couple of peers/mentors.
