E021 Surviving Society with The Sociological Review: Podcasting to get through your PhD

Welcome to another *live* episode of Surviving Society! In our third and final collaboration with The Sociological Review, our #1 fan Dr Michaela Benson interviews Saskia, Chantelle and Tissot about podcasting, public sociology, and how we’ve helped each other to survive our PhDs. With our lovely audience of fellow PhD students and early career researchers, we discuss why we see sociology as an activist discipline, and the importance of harnessing your rage when you’re doing social research. Thank you so much to everyone in the audience for coming along and being so engaged, and an extra big thank you to Michaela for all her help and support! As always, we’re angry, we’re sweary, we’re laughing, and we’re super grateful to everyone who has made this panel, the podcast and our studies possible.

Edited by Art of Podcast

Recorded in Gateshead at The Sociological Review conference, June 2018

Special thanks to Michaela Benson and everyone at The Sociological Review

E018 Bonus track: Happy birthday to us!

As we celebrate one year of Surviving Society, we treat you to a bonus episode in which Tissot reflects on Europe’s post-Brexit shift to the right, Saskia gets to grips with being a person of colour, and Chantelle reminds us of austerity’s death toll. The political picture hasn’t improved much since we started last September, but by thinking and raging and taking action together, we can have some hope that we will survive society. Thank you so much for being with us for our first birthday, and here’s to many more!
