‘The Graduates’ Airs Graduate Research Anyone Can Understand Published: July 11, 2019 By: Kathleen Aycock UC Berkeley graduate students Ashley Smiley and Andrew Saintsing are bringing graduate-level research to the public through their Q&A format radio show on KALX, 90.7 FM. Smiley and Saintsing, both doctoral students in the Department of Integrative Biology, interview a rotating cast of graduate students from departments across UC Berkeley with an emphasis on communicating about groundbreaking research within the scientific disciplines. “There is a lot happening at the university and we want to air shows that engage the community with the unique findings that graduate students are discovering,” Smiley shared. “The show serves as a way to potentially recruit people who may not be aware of the opportunities that lay in graduate school,” she said. The 30-minute show airs every other Tuesday at 9 a.m. on KALX. Tune in July 16 to hear the next episode, or listen to podcasts of past episodes from Smiley, Saintsing, and former host Tesla Monson.
