Episode 127 · March 1st, 2021 · 51 mins 11 secs

About this Episode

We discuss when is the right time in your academic career to begin speaking up to critique your research field or whether the risk of retaliation means you should shut up and keep your head down. This was a recorded Clubhouse chat, which includes some audience interaction at the end.

Links and details:

  • Moin Syed's blogpost, which was the inspiration for this topic
  • The 'proper' letter to the editor critique vs. a social media critique
  • What about retaliation for speaking out?
  • Differences between industry and academia
  • Thank you to Yan, Louis, Evan for their contribitions to our chat!
