On this episode, the topics included:

- Why libraries don’t brag about themselves and their great programs
On the call were Maurice Coleman (@baldgeekinmd), Andrea Snyder (@alsnyder02), and Kate Kosturski (@librarian_kate). You can listen to the episode at http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-24719/TS-895456.mp3.
You might wonder, as you look at the episodes below, what happened to episode 143. With people catching up from spending time at conferences and others on vacation, episode 143 didn’t happen. Which leads us into episode 144 (2014 Intermezzo or something like that), where Maurice Coleman lets folks know that the show is not dead, but that people continue to be on vacation. (The episode is 3 minutes long.)
In episode 145 (Do I Have Broccoli In My Teeth?), the crew discussed personal and life-long learning networks learning styles, and Barbara Fister’s Library Journal article entitled “What PIL [Project Information Literacy] Teaches Us About Lifelong Learning.” On the call were Maurice Coleman, Laura Botts, Paul Signorelli and Steve Thomas.
The show then took a four week hiatus, which bring us to episode 146 ( I’ll Catch Up On My Ironing), where we celebrated T is for Training’s sixth anniversay! On the call were Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli and Diane Huckabay. Maurice began the show by talking about what the very first two shows of T is for Training talked about (and who participated). We then jumped into a conversation about signage, directional challenges and perspectives of the learner and the teacher.
In celebration, below are photos from a few T is for Training get togethers, including when the show has been recorded with people all actually in the same room! And if you’d like to go through the Talkshoe archive of the show, go to http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=24719

Maurice had an immoveable object called a keynote at the same time as the show. Thanks to my good friend and drinker of large adult beverage the next time I see her Kate K!
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. :)
