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 Fifteen - "The lady version of a detective."

This week, with special guest Melanie Cassidy...

Mind Grapes: Lots going on on our mind grapes this week, from Saved by the Bell and time travel movies to murder mysteries and feel-good holiday flicks.

BiblioFiles: Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle - how does she hold up as a librarian, as a superhero, and as a female comic book character? Melanie walks us through her research, analysis, and wishlist on the history and future of this iconic librarian.
