Grad Chat, a collaboration with CFRC 101.9FM, is a 30-minute radio show that features graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. This is an opportunity to showcase their program and their research to Queen’s and Kingston communities. It is also a training opportunity to learn how to disseminate their work to a non-specialist audience.
All aired sessions will be available to listen via podcast on either Apple podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify or Stitcher. All options can be sourced via CFRC podcasting .
