Hey namechecked! I will listen to this tonight. If you want to chitchat on the podcast, just drop me an email.
I would like to comment on Andy's views on relocating. Some people cannot relocate to work because of various factors. I am motivated to work in another state but forces I do not control prevent me from relocating. I am a highly motivated person but the forces I mentioned also prevent me from trying to relocate. Andy does not understand that there are people like me out there that can only take jobs in the areas where we live. Librarians like me should not be called by others just because others believe we are not motivated to relocate to gain employment.
Thanks, Jessamyn. You're definitely on the list of people I want on the show!
