Listening: You’ve Got This
I’ve recently started listening to You’ve Got This a weekly academic and higher education focused podcast. The podcast is produced and created by Dr. Katie Linder. The podcast covers a whole range of topics including productivity, writing, grading, teaching strategies, and lots of other good material. Despite not being a faculty member the issues tackled in the podcast are still relevant to the some of work I’m engaged in such as grant writing, public speaking, and project management. Many of the episodes focus on skill building, developing work strategies, and career management. Linder brings a varied perspective to these topics while often providing concrete examples of things that have worked (or not) in her career.
Each episode is relatively short with many being between ten or fifteen minutes. I find the episodes are the prefect length to listen to while going between stores, doing short household tasks, or when I’m tried/know my attention span is going to last for a longer podcast. I also really enjoy that this is a solo female podcast that flows really well – I’m always on the lookout for really well put together podcasts.
As a bonus Linder’s show notes are really well done and include any resources she mentions in the show. On the accessibility side of things each podcast also comes with a downloadable full transcript.
