About Dear Grad Student

'Dear Grad Student' is a podcast all about what it's *really* like to be a grad student. It's a place for ALL students to celebrate, commiserate, and support each other through grad school. Dear Grad Student is hosted by Elana Gloger, a 4th year PhD student in psychology and each week features a grad student guest to talk about various themes and topics relevant to grad school...things like resources all students should know, racism in academia, mentor-mentee relationships, and more! Plus, some episodes feature a 'Day in the Life' of a fellow grad student where they cover their journey to and through grad school. As grad students, we all love what we do, struggle with what we do, need support through what we do, and should be celebrated for what we do and 'Dear Grad Student' is the place for it all. If you are a new or old fan of 'Dear Grad Student' and are looking to support the show, you've come to the right place!

What your support currently contributes to:
  • Uploading and hosting the podcast on all major platforms
  • Better social media content & engagement (mostly so that I can schedule obligatory posts and be present with ya'll day-to-day)
  • Otter.ai, a transcript service that will eventually replace the automatic captions for episodes currently available on YouTube.
  • A podcast website
  • Podcast merchandise (now available on RedBubble!)
  • Payment for a transcription editor so that transcripts are completed faster and with fewer errors
What your support will contribute to in the future:
  • Payment for a podcast editor/sound mixer. I learned everything on YouTube and don't *actually* know what I'm doing, but thanks for sticking around anyways :)
  • Payments/gifts for guests for their time and energy with the podcast
  • Monthly donations to causes we care about
...and more!

Thanks for joining me on this journey of grad school and podcasting. Currently, tiers don't have many special offers as I am working to get on a healthy podcast schedule this semester along with PhD-ing full-time. However, there will be more special offers at different tiers of support in the future. This will be announced ahead of time so that if anything related to your tier changes, you'll know in advance.

Potential future bonus content:
  • ~special merch~
  • Social media shout outs/appreciation posts
  • Bonus episodes
  • Behind the scenes look at episode production and guest conversations
  • Early episode releases
...and more!

Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for supporting the podcast. Thank you for supporting this grad student community.

Warmest Regards, 

Best Wishes,

Sincerely,

Elana
