During the introduction for this program, I briefly mentioned the speakers' podcast, George & Joan, Thinking Out Loud. I have subscribed to it in my Google Reader account and highly recommend it. Each podcast is about 20 minutes long, but includes an interesting dialogue between George and Joan along with tidbits they've picked up on their topic for the day. If you're interested, here's the RSS feed, and here's a link to the blog.
Their latest podcast covered "Tough Economic Times & Libraries" and had some fascinating bits, like the story of one library that let go of their shelving staff when forced to make budget cuts, only to get them back later because the community made an uproar about how important those folks were! Take a listen and see what you think.
