PHD podcast

Students: give your voice!

Make way for the reality of students: during an informal discussion, we take the time to talk about life in research while having a good time! We disconnect from the laptop to better connect between us! Discussions that are at the same time serious, funny, philosophical, interesting and TRUE that make us feel allies on a rather lonely journey.

Your background, your life, your research, your anecdotes, your projects, your cooking recipes, your tips, your joys and your fears … In short, we talk (with) about humans studying in the research paths.

Click here to listen the podcast’s 1st season (in french only). 

Thank you and have a great week!
