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-Eight - "Representation is a really powerful thing..."

This week, with special guest Mitchell Meler...

Mind Grapes: Alli's been jumping on the Veronica Mars bandwagon, and thinks the mother did it; Mitchell tells us about the importance of queer representation in Dragon Age; and Sam waxes poetic about attending UBC Slam.

Where Do We Put This?: Mitchell leads us through an exploration of the narrative potential of video games, particularly when it comes to the future of reading and books.
