Black Future Dr is a podcast dedicated to showcasing the experiences of black and black mixed doctoral students in the UK (including those pursuing PhDs, as well as professional and medical doctorates).
Episodes were released weekly from April to July 2021, and featured a different student, studying a different doctorate, at a different university. Every episode is hosted by an SWDTP student Nina Higson-Sweeney, a black mixed student currently studying towards a PhD in Psychology at the University of Bath.
Each episode featured an informal interview between Nina and a host of guest speakers. Topics discussed range from supervision to mentorship; from non-traditional pathways to mental health; from the application processes to future careers.
