On the 12th of April 2021 the very first episode of The Struggling Scientists Podcast aired. This was just after we were allowed back to work in the Netherlands after the first Corona lockdown. The Worst Moment to start doing something next to the start of the 4th year of your PhD. But that did not stop Suzanne and Jayron!
They had a dream to make a Science Podcast for other Scientists. Life as a Scientist/PhD student can be very hard, and they wanted to Make Science Fun Again. For others, but also for themselves.
Soon the dream started growing. First with a Social Media Platform full of memes made by Jayron, then a webshop with Science Inspired designs made by Suzanne. All of that led to them officially registering The Struggling Scientists as a Business in January 2022.
The Struggling Scientists has continued to grow more than they ever imagined. And they are even looking for teammates now!
