Graduating Podos PhD students are invited (ok, goaded) into participating in a sort of reverse New-Yorker cartoon caption contest. Here's how the contest works: students identify, preferably from obscure corners of the literature, a published quote that resonantes with their PhD project and that holds some sort of personal meaning. Podos then distributes the quote widely by email, along with an invitation to submit cartoons that could accompany the quote. Entries are displayed at the defense party, and a winning entry is selected by the candidate and a panel of "experts". Here are results to date from Podos lab PhDs (more to come in short order!):
