Episode 91: Content Warning Part II–Alene’s Hard Pass

download

In this episode, we continue what we began in Episode 90  and bring you Alene’s hard pass. Content warning for discussion of various unpleasant topics, primarily suicide. Apologies for the poor sound quality, we didn’t feel like we would make it through this one again if we tried to re-record it.

“A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone.”
~Jo Godwin

…and a moderately good librarian podcast should aspire to the same!

In this episode, we brought in author and podcaster Annie Cardi (@anniecardi) discuss things everyone likes that we don’t. Yes, it was covered in Episode 9, but that was back in December 2014, so here’s an update!
