As women, we have the power of influence - whether through parenting, chatting in our social circles, voting, building and supporting consciously-run businesses, or simply listening to a different person's experience of the world. Two wickedly smart, funny, compassionate, visionary women, Sara and Misasha, want to help move the needle with conversations around race, identity, happiness and more. Join the community, as we look through different lenses like law and history, life coaching and p ...
 
We exist beyond the temporal realm, in tune with things greater than our ego. Polishing the Black Stone reinforces this through conversations exploring relationships, spirituality, psychedelics, art, culture, and the concept of self. It is a reminder that we are human, it is a reminder that we are all one. With our culture emphasizing that we must feel good, we tend to ignore our primordial issues. This ignorance leads to the metaphoric black stone. Which we wear away through communication a ...

This week on Papa PhD, we’ll be focusing on graduate students and their professional development needs and common blind spots.

L’année 2020, marquée par la pandémie de COVID-19, nous a apporté de grands défis et nous a amené à changer nos habitudes, notre façon de vivre en société. L’effort de lutte contre la dissémination du coronavirus a aussi entraîné des débats et des questionnements qui relevaient du domaine scientifique – la virologie et la compréhension du virus, l’…
 
We finally made it to the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. This day is about a break with Trumpism, a break from the direction that our country has steadily been heading for the past nearly five years, and the fact that the majority (it’s a small one, but still a majority) of our country rejected that ideal in N…
 
An update in the case after nearly two years: Daron Wint’s lawyers have filed an appeal seeking to throw out his conviction and asking for a new trial.

In case you didn’t see the news, our US Capitol was overrun by a mob of insurgents at the beginning of 2021, largely spurred on by a conspiracy theory led by the American president that the 2020 US Election was rigged. We figured now was a good time to talk about conspiracy theories - with an expert. Today, we bring you an enlightening conversation…
 
Hi and happy new year! In this first episode of 2021, I bring you a story you may in part know.

Take the Papa PhD Listener Survey Now ! Fabrice worked as a …
 
We’re finally done with 2020… but if 2020 taught us anything, it’s that this period of time we are living through will be examined in the history books. Our grandkids will be asking us what life was like during the global pandemic, how strict our lockdowns were, and what we did to stand up against the racial and social injustices that were made so …
 
This week, I’m bringing you my conversation with Eric James Stephens, Founder of ChangeHigherEd, a platform where, in the summer of 2020, being unemployed, he set out to help PhDs understand their value through live-streamed events and workshops that ended up bringing in many thought leaders into the discussion and having over 250 registered attend…
 
We’ve been waiting to record this episode . . . basically the whole year, or at least since early March. It’s our annual wrap-up episode, except that just like everything else in 2020, it’s not like how it was last year.

Répond au sondage à l’audi…
 
We recently read a great piece on Medium called “Finally an Answer to Why So Many People Voted For Trump” -- which is a question we’ve been asking ourselves, too. The author notes: “Trump is definitely not virtuous - but he doesn’t pretend to be. He never claims to be morally superior to other people; he’s shameless in all of his flaws, and it give…
 
The holiday season is here and a lot of us are trying to make sense of a very challenging, for some of us a traumatizing year 2020, in preparation for the new year. This week, and to hopefully bring you some appeasement and some warmth at this time when we’d all rather be with our friends and family celebrating, rather than being locked down, I am …
 
If you ask me or anyone helping people with career transitions what the most powerful tool is in testing the waters and in growing your network when preparing for job hunting, you will most certainly hear these two words: informational interviews.

Here’s something we’ve never thought about before, because we’ve taken privacy law HIPAA at face value.

Vers la fin de mon doctorat, je savais que je ne ferais pas de postdoc. Mais à part des tests qui me disaient quels domaines seraient intéressants à explorer avec mon profil, comme l’enseignement au collégial ou le coaching, je n’avais aucune idée de ce que j’allais faire après la rédaction de ma thèse. Finalement, j’ai découvert, à travers mon rés…

If we want sponsorship, we must remain non-partisan and can’t talk about political affiliation. We’re here to say that we aren’t seeking sponsorship on those terms, and we don’t believe talking about voting for Biden in 2020 means we are partisan – we believe we are voting FOR HUMANITY. This may be an explicit episode, so if you’ve got kids who can…

In Episode 83, we met and heard the story of Marcus Bullock, who is currently a CEO, and a formerly incarcerated individual.

But here’s the thing. 95% of incarcerated individuals DO make…

Have you ever had someone who has been incarcerated over for dinner, to learn about their story? Or, if you knew that someone was in prison, does that frighten you enough to stay away? Whatever you think about “law & order,” 95% of incarcerated people do leave prison and rejoin society. What is being done to help support them, instead of making it …
