The Women in Ecology and Evolution Podcast is back for season 2! Kicking off 2022 (belatedly) with a super fun episode, so strap in for more great guests and conversations about science and academia, and beyond. My guest today is Sneha Dharwadkar, a wildlife biologist and herpetologist from India, and currently a PhD candidate - we talk about her journey into research, parachute science, and starting a PhD in your thirties, and during a pandemic. We're joined by Lucy Harding and Dagmar der Weduwen to recap the highs and lows of 2021 with the Rant and Rave Wheel! The first Paper in Focus of the year is from Kelly Wuthrich, on facultative crypsis in a lizard.
