Let’s give ’em something to talk about: Season 1 close-out Q&A

In this episode, we’re talking with you about scicomm. We are answering YOUR questions, and we’re excited to rove widely through topics and questions you’ve sent us. We touch on the big picture 📸 and the nitty gritty of CVs, diversity and inclusion, pitching experimentation and assessment, and learning new things as a scicommer.

Balance, schmalance

We don’t love how the phrase “work-life balance” implies tradeoffs. ⚖ For us, it’s more about work-life harmony. Getting work done *and* fulfilling ourselves along the way.

Grappling with our science wife identity

There’s a whole sticky mess 🍯 of having time vs. making time, and it can drag you down, make you question your sense of purpose, and even put you at odds with folks you care about. This week, we tackle some ways of re-thinking time, time lines, and commitments.

Drop everything…for something new

The privilege of volunteering

No one can decide what you do for free but you. Volunteering is often a portal into relationships and career experience. It’s also a way to give back to our community or professional environments. But, unpaid labor is often exploitative (or not possible for some of us). This week, we invite you to dig into this rotten conundrum with us.

Why I don’t help people (for free)

Being a good person means helping people for free and being a good business person means NOT helping people for free. So there has to be some kind of middle ground here for professionals. But how do you decide who you help and when?

This is the beginning (or not) of a beautiful friendship

Whether we like it or not, our systems are mostly still relational, which means our success is very related to networks. And, of course, you can’t build a relationship with someone you don’t know exists. Join us to tackle a big question: how to approach networking in ways that are authentic to our values.

Branding is not a dirty word

Is branding as gross as mealy fruit, or is it the greatest scicomm idea since mass media? Add your two cents as we discuss the many sides of branding, the problems with a façade of scientific neutrality, and how we deal with branding at individual and project/organization levels.
