I caught up with midwife and academic Liz McNeill recently. She hosts the Thru the Pinard podcast which aims to support midwives (and perhaps the occasional obstetrician even!) who are navigating the wonderful world of doctoral research. We talked about lots of things, including the importance of working with a great supervisory team and how important it is to never PhD alone. You can listen to our conversation here. Follow Liz McNeill on Twitter @PhDMidwives if you want to hear more about midwives and doctoral research.
