We are scheduled to record today the 9th of August live from my home office.   I am having a pretty serious amount of work done in my basement and may be interrupted by folks who need my attention during the broadcast. is the location of the show if you want to call in, text chat or just listen in and lurk.
The next show after today will take place on September 6th, 2013.  I am taking my summer siesta and there will be no show on the 23rd.

So, hope you can join us today, in four weeks on the 6th or anytime by downloading any of our show.

Have a great day and great end of summer!


Episode 123 was a conversation between @BaldGeekinMD @jill_hw @paulsignorelli @alsnyder02 and @plexippa. With Andrea Snyder (@alsnyder02) moving to a new position (congratulations), the conversation started off taking about training, and meandered from there, inclduding a preview of the New York Library Association Annual Conference, where Jill and Andrea will cross paths!

The recording can be downloaded here.

Episode 122 included conversation on:

  • Why we aren’t blogging as much (and blogs vs. social media)
  • ALA Annual Conference
  • Pecha kucha presentation style
  • …and more…

On the call were:

The recording can be downloaded here.

The 120th @tisfortraining recorded on Friday.   Download the podcast here.

We talked with Kate Kostursk and Andrea Snyder about conference behaviors and things we want everyone to know about conferences.   (However that list is in another place than I am this point.)

But I tell you what, it was a brilliant list.

Hope you are all having a happy and healthy holiday season and wish you a joyous and successful new year.

We had our last show (our 111th, by the way)  “Wishing You A Better Tomorrow” and with the show being taped the day of the Newtown, CT incident.  We discussed workplace safety and active shooter situations.  A bit of departure from our normal subject matter.

If you just follow this blog and not our twitter feed @tisfortraining you may not know that we have been producing shows pretty much every two weeks throughout the year.

I would like to thank this year’s substitute host Kate K.  who always does a fantastic job when she guest hosts the show.

You can go to our talkshoe page and see our list of calls over the fall and early winter 2012.

Our next show is scheduled for January 11th, 2013  at 2 pm eastern time.

Our next call in show after that will be on February 8th, 2013 also at 2 pm eastern time.

I will be at ALA Midwinter in Seattle and may do a live show there.  We shall see.

Oh wait…that’s just guest host Kate (@librarian_kate)! 

Join Kate and Paul Signorelli (@trainersleaders) for a mostly serious conversation about technology, training with different skill levels, the trainer as trainee, and more.  Paul claims he’s not interesting and Kate claims she didn’t break Talkshoe, but we beg to differ.
