Dr Rachel Loney-Howes on taking on leadership, researching sexual violence, and understanding Butler

It's important to have friends in academia - people who understand your jam. I think I am really fortunate to have found Rachel at ANZSOC in 2022. Rachel is doing some really excellent work in the sexual violence space including work on alternative reporting mechanisms. I also really appreciate Rachel's willingness to step up into leadership when it is not always appreciated or seen. Go find some friends who get your jam - but first listen to this lovely episode and smile along with us.

This podcast was developed with support from the Queensland University of Technology.
