Podcast: Marginally Significant
Episode: Who are Conferences Good For?
Pub date: 2019-07-24

Most academics go to conferences, but who are they good for? Are there disparities in who can attend and who benefits from conferences? In this episode, we talk about one potential factor contributing to disparities–differences in travel funding available at different universities. We also talk about our own experiences with what we’ve gotten out of conferences with respect to our research, teaching, and mentoring of students.

Are Grants Worth It?

Podcast: Marginally Significant
Episode: Are Grants Worth It?
Pub date: 2019-09-26

Is it worth the time and effort to apply for grants when only a small percentage are funded? A recent paper by Kevin Gross and Carl Bergstrom (2019) suggests grant competitions in their corrent form are not worth it. We weigh in on our thoughts about the paper as well as grant funding, in general. We also briefly talk about the aspect of our jobs that motivate us to keep working. Spoiler alert: it is not applying for grants.
