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 Forty - "I want to go on record as saying that I don't think ALL Star Wars fans are fascists..."

This week, with special guest Jon Newell...

Mind Grapes: Sam saw Monty Python Live (Mostly); Jon's all about the Dying Earth this week; and Alli's been bingewatching lady coming-of-age stories.

NERD ALERT!: Jon sits in for the inaugural edition of a new segment where we tackle issues in nerd culture - this week, a freewheeling, wide-ranging conversation about what it means to be a "fan", and why it is that we use fandom to define ourselves and create connections with each other.
