Episode 29 – Emma Southon PhD, Ancient History

For Emma Southon, PhD in Ancient History it was embracing the horribleness of Ancient Rome that opened her eyes to how awesome history is.  From there she moved on to look at how early Christianity rose up and plotted and schemed to convert the masses from worshipping ancestors and multiple gods to just one god.  Emma does this with a smile on her face a non-stop laugh at the wackiness of it all.   Here are links to Emma's website, twitter feed, and podcast.  https://www.emmasouthon.com  Twitter - @nuclearteeth History is Sexy Podcast

Episode 23 – Donna Halper, PhD Communications

The ability to push through obstacles is a defining quality in Donna Halper’s PhD journey.  She had a goal of being on the radio and a bunch of college boys in the 60s were not going to keep her from her dream. When Donna realized the radio industry was changing she decided a new path was to be followed and she could use her radio past to build her future. The ultimate goal would require some work though, a dissertation, something that would be a challenge for Donna almost 35 years removed from her undergrad. http://www.donnahalper.com    Twitter link @DevorahLeah
