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.

This episode we’re talking about Crime Fiction! We discuss the Venn diagram of crime, mysteries, and thrillers, teenage girls punching robots, whether superhero comics count as crime fiction, teen sleuths, whodunnits, howdunnits, hughdunnits, and more!
