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 17, 2022

For our 150th episode, Chaos Reigns! We discuss the differences between talking about fiction and non-fiction, genres that don’t get the respect they deserve, our favourite pies, what genres we’re least and most looking forward to reading for the podcast, the horrors of virtual presentations, and more! Plus: Matthew’s Technically Correct Corner! 

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