Welcome to the “What’s the PhDeal?” podcast; the podcast where we attempt to demystify the scientific PhD process… for folks going through the rigors of pursuing a PhD, folks thinking about getting a PhD or even people just curious about what it’s all about! 

Your intrepid hosts are four PhD scientists that have gotten their PhDs in different scientific fields and schools; and all come from varied and disparate backgrounds to get different points of view in order to best bring you “the real PhDeal”. Your hosts are Dr. Luis (Lou) Estevez, PhD in Materials Science and Engineering (Cornell), Dr. Elizabeth Kautz - PhD in Materials Engineering (RPI), Dr. Elias Nakouzi - PhD in Physical Chemistry (Florida State), and Dr. Rajan Patel - PhD in Chemical Engineering (Missouri S&T).

All the music on the show is created by Luis Estevez, the graphics (with additional edits from Pamela Gregg) and audio design and edited by Rajan Patel, and all rights are reserved to us and this show.

This episode (#13), is part 2 of the spooky haunted amusement park on publication lane story... ooooo lucky number 13! After the gang unmasks Reviewer #3, the hauntings continue! The gang gets sleuthing and while Elias and Lou spend all their time making corny jokes, Rajan and Liz do some actual detective work and find out that the painful moaning sounds that have been scaring everyone are just a few grad students chained to the lab benches and forced to do "further experiments" by none other than REVIEWER #2! The real villain!
