Hi Shreya,

Thanks for this new forum. I read Jacinth’s article and feel inspired to share my experiences as a graduate student at IISER Pune. I (along with two batchmates) have started a podcast group called the Graduate Podcast Reporter (GPCR) at IISER Pune, where we discuss topics relevant to graduate students. Please let me know if and how can I contribute to PhD Cafe.
