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 Eighteen - "There's nothing wrong with adding a little romance..."

Mind Grapes: Lots on our post-holiday mind grapes, including surprises from Brandon Sanderson and social commentary from Margaret Atwood; cooking with ratios; playing very old video games; and, of course, our thoughts on The Hobbit (spoiler alert: we loved it, and we couldn't be happier about Tauriel).

Class Z(ed): Bits and bites on professional development, including learning about assessment, perception, and camaraderie at Academic Librarians in Public Service; getting experience running the Cool Tools Unconference; our jobs this term; and our final library school courses.


Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood

Ratio by Michael Ruhlman

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and an article at The Mary Sue, which, along with its comments, constitutes a really thoughtful discussion of Tauriel very much in line with our feelings on the subject.
