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-Five - "I guess you could say they need a bigger boat?"

This week, with special return guest Melanie Cassidy...

Mind Grapes:

Sam has found time to do some reading and shares her latest literary adventure. Alli is on a Shonda Rimes binge and has picked up Scandal. Melanie tells about a yearly podcast she likes and tells us all about her adventure on the JoCo Cruise Crazy! 

Class Z(ed): 

Last week was Canada's Freedom to Read Week (like a Canadian Banned Books Week) and Melanie did some library programming and media, so she knows all about it! Plus, a few book challenges that we dug out of the records that provide some interesting insight to properly considering a book and not just rejecting challenges out of hand.
