When I joined the team at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, there was one project that I knew I wanted to take on right away. GSAS had a long-dormant podcast called Veritalk that needed a bit of help to get back off the ground.
In the new version of Veritalk, we explore a theme over the course of three 15-minute episodes. Each episode takes on that theme through the lens of PhD research at Harvard University. Our goal is twofold: To highlight the work of PhD students and alumni, and to give early career scholars an opportunity to share their knowledge with the world.
With help from an outstanding sound designer, Ian Coss, Veritalk is doing that and more. We’ve explored topics from migration to mermaids, and we’re just getting started!
