A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading books we hate! 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.

Oct 1, 2019

This month we’re discussing American Gothic! We discuss old creepy houses, weird families, cultural context, potential supernatural, the sense of unease, and media that makes you feel emotions. Plus: You’ve inherited a haunted decaying space station.

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.
