Show Notes

What if we changed the post-academic career narrative? What if the Plan B career actually felt like a step in a brave new direction, not another step down a beaten--and beaten down--path? What if we sidestepped our fears and transformed them into agency?

Agency.

That's the theme of the second half of my interview with Natalie Berkman, PhD in French carving a path for herself, of her own design, at the intersection of academic management, ed tech, and self-directed scholarship. Enjoy the second chapter of Natalie's postdoctoral choose your own adventure story, where adventure gives way to agency.
