Love this Podcast!
I have listened to a handful of the Library Pros from their start, and I had to write a review to tell the hosts that I have so enjoyed this. So far, my faves have been your interview with Sarah Houghton, and now your chat with David Ecker. I joined Thingiverse/Tumblr as a result! Keep up the great work! I will keep listening
The Library Pros are great!
This podcast has a unique view of libraries and technology. Chris and Bob are funny, informative and have great guests! The topics are varied and they take their show “on the road” too. Although they are from NY and talk to New York library people, they also have nationally recognized guests and even go international from time to time! Give them a try!
