How well adjusted do you feel you are to your current career ?

This week on Papa PhD, I’m sharing my recent conversation with Danielle De La Mare, creator and host of the Self-Compassionate Professor podcast, about her approach to promotion career wellness in the academic community.

This is an exciting episode for me, because it’s a collaboration with the Self-Compassionate Professor. Danielle will be publishing an interview I gave her a few weeks ago onw day before this one goes live, so I strongly suggest you go listen to what I shared on mic with Danielle!
