S.S. Librarianship

a podcast for librarians and the nerds who love them

Hi! We're Alli Sullivan & Sam Mills. We met in a pub the night before our first day of library school, and since then we've been through a lot together - classes, presentations, jobs, weddings, Dungeons & Dragons campaigns - all the while finding ourselves engrossed in wide-ranging conversations about television, film, books, technology, and what it means to be a young, nerdy, lady librarian in the twenty-first century. This podcast is our attempt to share our conversation with you - we hope you enjoy listening, and we hope you'll jump in and join us by sending in a question, comment, or topic for us to discuss on the show!

Episode Thirteen - "Hipster, or zombie?"

This week, with special return guest Mary Jinglewski...

Mind Grapes: Sam's loving Happy Endings, and still reading about Jesuits in space; Alli reads Fangirl in one sitting and gives Supernatural a try; Mary tells us about the new cops and robots saga Almost Human, and gives us some southern insight into apocalyptic narratives.

Class Z(ed): We talk to Mary about her transition this year from library student to working librarian, and she tells us all about her non-traditional, but still incredibly vital, position with the BC Libraries Cooperative, where she performs IT assessments for rural library consortia, and works on the NNELS project to develop library materials for the print disabled. The takeaway? Network, network, network!

Mary's Cobbler Recipe:

Ms. Louise's Cobbler Recipe
4 cups of fruit
1 cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of self-rising flour
1 stick of butter

Note 1: Self-rising flour can be made with one cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Note 2: If using blueberries, adds some lemon juice, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour and 2 tablespoon of sugar. The flour will help thicken the water-saturated berries so that the cobbler isn't so watery.

1. Mix a bit of sugar with the fruit.
2. Grease the pan. (Butter, spray, etc. can be used.)
3. Mix together the milk, sugar and flour together in a separate bowl to make batter.
4. First, layer fruit in pan. Then, spread batter on top.
5. Slice the stick of butter and place slices across the top of the pan.
6. Bake at 400 degrees F for 1 hour.
