A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading every genre, whether we like them or not! Every month we read books from a new, randomly picked genre; then on the podcast we discuss our reading choices, experiences, opinions, appeal factors, and other related topics as friends and library workers.

May 15, 2018

Our genre this episode is Comedic Science Fiction & Fantasy. We talk about anachronisms, comedy in sci fi/fantasy and sci fi/fantasy in comedy, "laugh out loud" funny vs. "clever" funny, and more! 

You can download the podcast directly, find it on Libsyn, or get it through iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Spotify, or your favourite podcast delivery system.
