Unless you were living under a rock, you probably heard about Dr. Mareena Robinson Snowden who went viral as the FIRST Black Women to get her PhD in Nuclear Engineering from MIT.

On this week's episode she talks about her life and career after that level of notoriety, especially when the ink had barely dried on her doctoral degree and she was entering the workforce. Mareena shares how she is charting her career path by gaining experience while exploring her interests, which she calls her 'unconventional post-doc'. She puts us on game (hence the episode name), sharing sage advice and insight on life post-grad.
