  • 💡 Love it! 💡

    Steve’s thoughtfulness shines through in each episode and I always find a gem (or several) in every discussion. Although library-centric, people in government, education, and evening social services professions will also benefit from list being this podcast.

    Steve always picks great guests and topics to discuss. I am not a librarian, but I still find this show fascinating and look forward to hearing the variety of educational and intellectual voices on the pod. I highly encourage anyone who is interested in library science, education, publishing, or cultural discussion to give this a listen. more
