2014 MT-DIRC fellow Sarah Birken is co-hosting AcaDames, a podcast about women in academia. A full description follows. You can find AcaDames wherever you get your podcasts (e.g., iTunes, Google Play), or on our website https://www.acadamespodcast.com/, and you can follow us on Twitter @AcaDamesPodcast. We hope that you’ll listen, send your feedback, and share with AcaDames of all genders!
AcaDames is a biweekly podcast that explores whether being a woman in academia is a dream, game, or scam through interviews with a diverse range of women. Discussions cover career trajectories, finances, childbearing decisions, spirituality, the ever-present patriarchy, and everything in between. Co-hosts Whitney Robinson and Sarah Birken open up to each other and their guests in intimate, frank, and often funny conversations. Along the way, they share insider knowledge about the “hidden curriculum” for professional advancement (and potential world domination).
