Having friends over for dinner: Circulating Ideas podcast

It was a crazy busy summer for me and I didn’t notice this wonderful new podcast by Steve Thomas until last week. Circulating Ideas is a monthly interview with librarians from all walks of our profession.

From Steve:

This show is my meager attempt to get the word out on what we’re doing as a profession to remain relevant and to push the boundaries of learning and collating information, getting our ideas out there in the world, circulating them like we circulate our collections.  I hope it will also be enlightening to my fellow librarians to learn more about what other librarians are doing to push the profession forward.  I’ll be interviewing librarians and other people relevant to the profession and getting their points of view out to you, the listeners, and I hope that they spark discussions, whether you agree with the interview subject’s views or not. (from Epsiode Zero)

Not at all “meager” Steve! Those interviewed so far include: Buffy Hamilton, Kate Sheehan, Lori Reed, Paul Signorelli and the guys from Unshelved. There’s also a fun and informative show on how Steve creates the podcast, a “Library Day in the Life 7” special episode. Coming up on Oct 11, Justin Hoenke.

Listening to podcasts & cooking go together for me. So when I get hooked on a great podcast, I tend to find excuses to spend more time in the kitchen cooking dinner. Thanks for bringing so many wonderful people into my kitchen! And thanks for all the great dinners. 🙂

Keep me cooking! What are your favorite podcasts?
