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 Seventy-One - "We Saw a Star War"

Mind Grapes: Since becoming mildly employed (as opposed to totally employed), Alli has been sinking hours and hours (and days) into Fallout 4. We talk about video games, Sam's slow progress in Portal, and how difficult it can be sometimes to break into a new nerd field that is kind of intimidating. To that end, we also discuss Sam's foray into older comics thanks to a Marvel Unlimited subscription. She suggests some titles and story arcs that would be good for comic noobs. Also, we saw a Star War. So there's that too.

Class Z(ed): A bit of a catch-up, really. We could give you excuses for the haitus, but we thought it would be better to simply tell you all the things that we've been up to (as excuses for the haitus). Alli discusses coming off a one-year contract, what's she's learned, and what she's taking with her. Sam talks about her dual life as a digital collections librarian and a member of the Programming and Learning team. Good things are happening, and we're excited to tell you about it.
