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 Nineteen - "Do you get to crawl into Jefferies tubes? OMG JEFFERIES TUBES!"

This week, with special guest Jason Korff...

Mind Grapes: On a three for three book review this week, Jason shares one of his favourite re-reads in the young adult / teen fiction department, Sam talks about her latest non-fiction find, and Alli shares her late night Rainbow Rowell experiences. We also bandy about some movies and t.v. shows that we have been dabbling with.

Class Z(ed): We get into some issues surrounding video games in libraries, how do they get there, and why do we think it's important to develop these collections. Also a little discussion about the nature of games as art and why people who don't think they can be art are stupid.
