Great for librarians & music lovers

As an academic librarian, this is my favorite library podcast. I learn something new nearly every week, I love the guests they choose for the show, and the entire crew is great. As a music lover, I appreciate the broad range of rock featured on the show--from oldies to contemporary bands. I love that the playlist is thematic and often assigned Library of Congress call numbers (how else would academic librarians identify groups of songs?). This show is an absolute joy to listen to. <3
