Listen now
This week... Mind Grapes: Sam has been doing some reading inbetween a re-watch of Downton Abbey. In a similar vein, we discuss her reading of Kazuo Ishiguro's Remains of the Day and discuss some of our other favourite upstairs/downstairs things. Alli has been playing BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins and is loving it. We talk about BioWare's amazing attention to story and character as well as some awesome adventure games for the non-combat inclined. Class Z(ed): We have had some great interviews with our recently graduated friends about their first jobs out of school. This week, that spotlight turns to Alli as she discusses her first few months as the Instructional Services Librarian at a local community college. We talk about some of the job duties, keeping up with instruction trends, and working with a small group of amazing colleagues.
