We are two CUNY librarians who like to talk. We’re finding people from all around the university who also like to talk – about their work, their play or the connection therein. We talk to them indoors, but you can listen to them wherever you are on your favorite device, eating your favorite snack. We encourage using headphones or earbuds, though a boom box might be appropriate in some situations. You be the judge.
