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.

Sep 18, 2018

This month we read Romance Fiction! We talk about “interpersonal attraction”, fake fan fiction, imagining the leads of romance novels look like David Bowie, spice-o-meters, the prime minister of the werewolves, and romance novels about low income housing. Plus: In the Arms of the Spider Hunk!

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.
