Description

A podcast for celebration, commiseration, and support through grad school for the students who are living it (or want to). Join Elana Gloger, a full-time 4th year doctoral student and part-time human, as she chats with fellow grad students about their professional and personal experiences, without taking either too seriously. Episodes include conversations about students' Day in the Life, conversations about Diverse Identities and Racism in Academia, and themed episodes (like, Mental Health in Grad School or Resources for Efficiency). As grad students, we all love what we do, struggle with what we do, need support through what we do, and should be celebrated for what we do and 'Dear Grad Student' is the place for it all.
