This podcast is not stories in a magazine made on cheaply made wood-pulp paper. It also isn’t anything to do with a 1990s film by Quentin Tarantino. And it also isn’t any of the works by stencil artist, Bansky. It has a lot to do with book and movie recommendations by Dallas Public Library personal librarians. If you need a new book, a fun movie or a laugh, give it a try!
