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 Fifty-Five - "It was an incredible thing to be in the middle of."

This week, it's the JoCo Cruise recap you've all been waiting for...

Mind Grapes: Sam says Yes, Please to Amy Poehler's memoirs; Alli thoroughly enjoyed the colourful zaniness of Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Nerd Alert!: It's finally that time - Sam recaps her experiences on JoCo Cruise 5, talking about the performances, the activities, and the people that make it such a special trip and remarkable community.
