The purpose of this paper is to introduce the reader to two topics - Shintani lifting and generalized Gelfand-Graev representations - in the representation theory of finite reductive groups. Although both are meaningful (and perhaps more interesting) for reductive groups over local fields, we almost always confine ourselves to the finite field case; the main exception to this is the last subsection, where we state some conjectures concerning generalized Gelfand-Graev representations of reductive groups over local fields.
