In this bonus episode between seasons 2 and 3 of the BoldAdulting podcast, writer & podcaster Jordan Morris discusses with Masha how the characters on his sci-fi comedy Bubble articulate their needs and boundaries, navigate choosing between privacy and authenticity, try things that may not work out, and deal with difficult feedback. Also hear Jordan share about his confidence in sharing creative projects.
Science Communicator Dave Farina of the Professor Dave Explains YouTube channel and the Professor Dave Debates podcast opens up about how his projects are a refuge from stress, his journey in and out of multiple graduate programs, and why it’s important to calibrate your expectations based on your goals.

So, you got a grad school interview, or maybe 2 (or 5? You're going to be tired!).
First of all, huge congratulations! Tons of people apply to each graduate program and just the fact that you got an interview is already a great sign.
But now you might be feeling nervous because now you're actually going to be meeting the very people who will ultimately decide whether you get to go to grad school.
