There are all sorts of tools to help you with your graduate school journey: books, websites, blogs, and…podcasts? Yup, podcasts! For those of you who love being able to listen to podcasts while at the gym, on your commute, or while you’re relaxing, now you can listen to a podcast that will help you navigate graduate school and any questions you have about a whole range of topics for grad school and even beyond!

First, the basics: what is a podcast, for the uninitiated? It’s generally a series of episodes of audio files, like a digital serial radio show, almost. They’re generally focused broadly on a topic or a theme, and then each individual episode tackles something different. If you’re interested in a topic, there’s probably a podcast on it! You can find them from the App Store on your phone and download them, or you can go to the website and listen to them on your computer. Many are free, although some might have a nominal fee.

So what podcasts are out there for graduate students? Glad you asked – check these out!

Rock Your Research

Rock Your Research is a blog and a podcast that focuses on maintaining quality of life while still working hard in graduate school. They tackle work-life balance, academic and non-academic career options, boosting productivity, building relationships with mentors and committee members, and dissertation tips. They also have interviews with researchers, journal editors, and more.

Hello PhD

Hello PhD arose from two students who met at a grad school interview and ended up going to graduate school together. They put together a podcast for students, postdocs, faculty, and other students in order to share what they learned on their graduate school journey and to help others navigate this path. Topics covered include lab culture, publishing, funding, GREs, graduate school, time management, self-care and wellness, tenure, diversity, research, and more.

Blk + In Grad School

Blk + In Grad School is a podcast focused on women and people of color in grad school, and talking about what that’s like, what to expect, and learning from each other. The creator and host, Allanté, is in a PhD program herself and tackles topics like being organized, ups and downs of grad school, running a business, choosing to go to grad school, finances, and much more.

Thesis Editor are experts with a heart of gold.

I received impressive service from Thesis Editor. I found them to be a bunch of professional experts with a heart of gold.

I'm a Doctorate student that is studying online. I needed assistance with data analysis and my internet search brought up Thesis Editor. Straight away I could tell that they were a high standard credible service and that I could trust them. They provided me a service that was beyond my expectations. They gave me knowledgeable experts to assist me with my data analysis. Not only did they provide me this incredible service, but they also took time to provide me the emotional support that I needed, because, online Doctorate studies is a very lonely journey. Sometimes you find yourself alone with your laptop.

Commonly, people with such high standards of service and skills are so proud of themselves and will not bother to care about the emotional well being of their customers. They will just be cutthroat, clinical and be no nonsense about their issues and yours.

That was not the case with Thesis Editor, they were not just about the money, but actually cared about the client. I'll be forever thankful to the staff of Thesis Editor
