The Royster Global initiative at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill launched a new podcast series, PhD and Me: The Third Degree, in early September of 2020. The initiative was created by the Royster Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary fellowship program within The Graduate School. Royster Global aims to increase awareness and understanding of graduate education across international borders and help prepare doctoral students for global opportunities for research, networking and employment.

Banu Gökarıksel, a geographer and Caroline H. and Thomas S. Royster Distinguished Professor for Graduate Education, announced the launch of the podcast as a part of the Royster Fellowship virtual fall celebration held Sept. 2.  

“I’m very grateful to all the Royster fellows who came up with the podcast idea, generated content, used or learned new skills, composed the music, edited all episodes, planned the whole process of podcast production and launch event, and spent many hours on this project,” said Gökarıksel.
