Hey...can we pull you aside for a quick chat? This is the exciting spinoff series of Livin' La Viva Voce! Meg and Adam are two proper fit PhD students (one in English lit, the other in comp sci) who love getting drunk and chatting about...anything! This podcast is dedicated to all things Love Island UK, Series 7. And listeners? We're just your type.
 
Livin’ la Viva Voce is a series dedicated to bringing academic scrutiny upon a myriad of topics, using the age old art form, the PhD defence. Join us, Meg & Adam, as we put our skills to the test, and construct PhD vivas in under a week on a topic randomly selected by the other. Oh and did we mention? We’ll be drunk whilst presenting!
