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 Twenty-Seven - "Into a magical world of puritans!"

This week, with special guest Emily Booth...

Mind Grapes: Emily likes creepy non-fiction books about medical deformities and mutations, but is tempering that interest with a book about puritans. Sam is kind of enjoying the science fiction of 2009's V. And Alli is time travelling and full of weird freaky magic. 

Where Do We Put This?: What the heck is an archive? What goes in there? What makes it different from a library? Why do archivists hate librarians? All these answers and more when Emily Booth gives us a basic primer of the archive.
