About Further Research Needed

Who are we 
Further Research needed is created by Chris, Hannes and Jan. Three scientists with different backgrounds but a shared love for discussing science. While Hannes and Jan are still working hard on getting their PhD in Stockholm, Chris is a Postdoc in Switzerland.

What do we do 
We started this podcast to critically think about the state of science and share it with the world. Too often the reality of academia and its portrayal in the public diverge in meaningful ways. Further Research Needed is our way to provide a safe space for scientists to talk candidly about the great and not so great things in our work. Of course, we also throw in the occasional shenanigans to lighten the mood ;)

How do you support us
By becoming a patreon and showing your appreciation, you inspire us to create more content and up our podcast game. Your contribution will help us pay for more professional equipment and maybe even pay our part-time salary in the future. We would love to hear your feedback and for you to become a part of our community!
