I have recently come across this amazing podcast providing key ingredients to success in all areas of science. Thanks Dr. Higgins for your wisdom and foresight. I wish more successful investigators understood the importance of gaining skills beyond the bench.

I love this podcast. It provides listeners with unique insight into the lives of scientists and the world of academia. Podcasts like these are rare and as a PhD student, it can be incredibly helpful to listen to experienced individuals in the field.

Very interesting interviews with scientists about the experience of being a scientist. The guests are very candid, and it covers both the positive and less positive aspects of academia. Lots of food for thought, and nicely produced too.
