Relationships and Academia

As we close out February, we’re going to be talking about relationships and academia, specifically with our life partners. One thing we’ve observed is just how challenging it can be for academics and for their partners who have to contend with the limited job opportunities the academic job market provides. What are the negotiations that partners make when one partner gets a PhD admissions offer or a job offer? Is it easy to be in a romantic relationship with an academic given academia’s quirks?

On this episode, host Ethel Tungohan talks to our great friends, Suzanne and Tyler, and producer and partner, Wayne Chu.
