This episode is all about work outside the traditional academic box, in one way or another! First up, I talk to Priya Nanjappa about the fantastic work she's done in applied ecology throughout her career (and yes, we talked about her love of toads 🐸❤️). Next, Holly English joins to tell me about her paper using info from public databases to assess the distribution of wallabies (!) in Britain. Lastly, Priya and I are joined by Gail McCormick and Sarah McKain for a great discussion about non-academic career paths.
Hosted, as always, by me, Kirsty MacLeod.
