We are two CUNY librarians who like to talk. We’re finding people from all around the university who also like to talk – about their work, their play or the connection therein. We talk to them indoors, but you can listen to them wherever you are on your favorite device, eating your favorite snack. We encourage using headphones or earbuds, though a boom box might be appropriate in some situations. You be the judge.

||CleanWraparound, Episodes 1-3||In this installment, Steve and Kathleen chat with each other about what they’re reading and who they’re wearing. They also reflect on the three interviews they’ve done so far, finding a set of serendipitous commonalities that also correspond to the idea behind Indoor Voices. They did so at the LaGuardia Community College recording studio where they foresee having future wraparounds, so we all have something to look forward to.||10/28/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean“Corralling scholarly cats…”: Jessie Daniels and Polly Thistlethwaite’s Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practice for the Public Good||As a librarian, there are certain issues, like open access, that I feel I have a pretty firm grip on. When I read Jessie Daniels and Polly Thistlethwaite’s Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practice for the Public Good, I knew it would be good, but I didn’t expect many surprises. But the book blew me away in terms of the fantastically interesting takes on what matters to academics—not necessarily to academia—in the 21st century.||10/28/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Pas de Deux: Two Social Movemements: Barbara Katz Rothman on her book, A Bun in the Oven: How the Food and Birth Movements Resist Industrialization||I had the pleasure of a relaxed yet stimulating conversation with Barbara Katz Rothman about her book, A Bun in the Oven: How the Food and Birth Movements Resist Industrialization. In the spirit of resistance, rather than recording in the confines of an institution, we met in Barbara’s NYC apartment, replete with the ambient sounds of traffic and jackhammering in the distance. Earbuds or headphones are recommended for the full effect.||10/28/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
