Recently I was interviewed about my work volunteering for McMaster’s campus radio, CFMU. This is where I host a radio show about the cool research McMaster grads do, and where I sometimes play my own science podcast (see Podcasts). Here’s an excerpt. Click here to read the whole interview!
Adam Fortais is a final-year PhD candidate and, currently, one of three cohosts of AlmaMAC. He’s also the host of CUPEcast, which brings listeners updates on CUPE 3906, McMaster’s academic workers’ union.
I’ve often wondered, impressed, where he finds the time to do all this; this curiosity naturally motivated my questions. His responses touch on everything from how absorbing interdisciplinary knowledge has changed his own approach to research, to the intersection of storytelling and academia, to dashing across campus to the Greenhouse (funny story about that…). More generally, there’s also some great insights into the life of a graduate student here for aspiring researchers to take note of!
