That’s not Maurice you hear at the start of the episode.
That’s not even Joseph Fink. (A little something for you Welcome to Night Vale fans.)
It’s actually Kate (@librarian_kate) filling in for Maurice this week while he’s off doing something more fun. Kate and Jill (@jill_hw) talk about e-books, since Jill happened to be at an event on the subject this week, the implications of e-books in training, conferencing, and then come up with a really great idea that you’ll only know about if you listen to the recording (which is right over here).
Next episode is on 16 May, where we may not come up with Really Great Ideas, but you’ll have a good time and you don’t have to worry about angering the Glow Cloud or The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home.
Have a good week and stay out of the dog park. :)
