“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!
