The other day, Jason, Sci, Travis and I got together to chit chat about various aspects of grad student life. You know - likes, dislikes, how we ended up in grad school, etc. Anyhow, here's our little chat for your enjoyment:
You can also download the MP3 directly for your iPod, etc from this link HERE.
Is there anything we left out? Any questions you have about being a grad student, or anything really? We intend to make this podcast (tentatively named "Scibling Showdown") a regular habit, so if you've got something you want to know, don't be shy.
PS: Y'all missed the five minutes prior where we made fun of how Travis says "about." Next time, we've decided, we're instating a two drink minimum to loosen things up. Now that will be one to tune in for...
It's not a Scibling showdown unless we FIGHT!!! JELLO WRESTLING!!!!
ahahahaha. i totally made fun of travis's ridiculous canadian accent on my post, too!
One subject - a favorite of mine - is faculty preferences for their own illegitimate children, and those of their colleagues. Have you run into this?
One guy (name withheld), did no graduate work at all - just plagiarized articles out of the library and got a position at Penn State.
How do students feel about biasing data sets as is done in global warming? Good feeling as a scientist? How do you protect yourself from faculty stealing your intellectual property?
What about the new world order? DO people feel comfortable with Chinese and Russian faculty and students?
