Podcast Q&A

Why did you start this show?

Being an early career dementia researcher can be incredibly rewarding and challenging too. It is as much about new discoveries, collaborations and ideas as it is about the pressure to publish papers and the competition for funding. So, we put our heads together to create Dementia Researcher - a website, podcast and much more. A place to go to when you need some inspiration or want to get advice from other early career researchers and leading experts.

What do you hope listeners gain from listening to your show?

Every year we publish over 150 blogs written by early career researchers, for early career researchers. They talk about their research, experiences, careers and share advice. To help those who don't have time to read, or prefer to listen while they're on the move, all out bloggers read their blogs for your listening pleasure - we publish 2-3 of these short narrations each week in the Dementia Researcher Blogs Podcast. But if you prefer to read, you'll also find them on our website.

Which episode should someone start with?

The great things about these shows.... is that they're well catagorised and usually no more than 5-15 minutes long, so you can listen as they come out, or simply skip to the ones that will help or interest you. So if you're starting your PhD, we have shows about getting settled, time management, career planning, vivias.... or if your're a postdoc you might want to hear about grant writing, promotions, setting up a lab.... or just hear about some of the latest discoveries, news for everyone.

Which have been your favourite episodes so far?

We couldn't possibly comment... or choose a favourite... they're great blogs / podcasts, and each one is brought to life by being read back by the person who wrote it.

Which episode are you most proud of?

All those shows which are genuinely helpful to people.

What is your vision for your show?

Envision a lighthouse in the vast sea of content. Our aim for this show is to be that beacon, guiding listeners through waves of information, offering enlightening insights, heartfelt stories, and a dash of fun and practial support and advise and inspiration. We want to create show where curiosity meets depth, where every episode feels like a journey worth embarking on.

What is your favourite other podcast that isn't yours?

That's a tricky.... but of course I would have to say this shows big sister... Dementia Researcher. On that channel we have full length shows, released fortnightly the show brings researchers and experts together to talk about their work, share careers advise and talk about the latest discoveries from the conferences they've attended. It's all about sharing knowledge to help attract new people to the field, keep the people we have, and increase peoples understanding.

How did you come up with the name for your podcast?

I wish there was a clever answer to this.... but it really is just what it says on the tin. The Dementia Researcher Blogs - because they're blogs written by dementia researchers.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Dementia Researcher was started in 2018 by Adam Smith at University College London, with generous funding from the NIHR. Since then it has continued to grow and other funders now also contribute, they are Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's Research UK, Alzheimer's Society and Race Against Dementia. Adam tells us that he was born in the North (of England) a long time ago, he wanted to write books but wasn't clever enough... so now he makes podcasts, talks a lot and is sometimes helpful.
