Infopeople produces original podcasts from George and Joan (George Needham and Joan Frye Williams), Michaal Cart, and other presenters. Topics range from book and graphic novel reviews to the future of libraries.
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan take on what they call "the classic objections" - things that libraries say to avoid taking risks or making changes. Why? Joan says it stems from a lack of confidence in their area(s) of expertise, and the dreaded "What if it works?" among other things. Listen and see what you think!
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan talk about cycles, as in the ebb and flow of various things (good and bad) that happen in libraryland. Everything changes, everything evolves, and things inevitably move forward not back. I'm not doing the topic justice: you'll just have to listen to get the full value.
In this podcast, Infopeople's book guy Michael Cart indulges his passion for Southern fiction by devoting an entire podcast to North Carolina writer Ron Rash and his remarkable new novel Serena. What a story!
In this latest edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan look at children's literature and the kid's books that have had the most lasting impact on them. The messages in these books, as it happens, aren't just for kids! Titles discussed include "The Emperor's New Clothes," "Stone Soup," Many Moons," and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
In this podcast, Infopeople’s book maven Michael Cart mourns the loss of legendary author (and recluse) J. D. Salinger and muses about the current age of authorial self-promotion (tell-all memoirs, anyone?).
