Keeping it Weird!

You had me at, “I’ll grab a machete from the children’s department.” Great stuff! Excited to binge the rest of season one.

The Library Podcast we need AND deserve

A thoroughly enjoyable and bizarrely accurate insight into library operations. Whether it’s dealing with snarky problem patrons and their therapy llamas, or else managing blood feuds between library directors, this podcast is a delight and I can’t wait for more.

MtDew72 ,

Brilliant!

A brilliant mix of library snark and Dystopia. Exactly the commentary that’s been missing from the Library World : funny & clever!
