Transcript:

What about your friends and family, did they encourage you to embark on the PhD? 

Yeah. Mum and dad were just, 'if that's what you want to do then just go for it', kind of thing. A lot of friends thought it was quite a good thing, I think they were quite jealous really in a way because it seems such a nice thing to be doing, going off to read about things that you like. They think it's even funnier now I get paid for it.
