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 it’s the first part of our 2021 Battle of the Books! We’re each pitching a book that we think we should all read and discuss, and you get to decide which one we read! We talk about pombies, wooden book clubs, friendship, and more! Plus: Digressions about superheroes!

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