Mashup of The View and Between 2 Ferns
Though I subscribe to this podcast I always seem to re-discover it in my feed, and pleasantly so. The format consists of diverse group of library professionals that discuss in depth a young adult book. The group has good chemisty and are not bashful expressing conflicting opinions. After the book discussion the group will then discuss something casually off the beaten path. The group of personalities make this an informative and entertaining listen.
