    I’d like to add two, if I may –

    Cardigan Rippers, hosted by the Santa Clara County Library in California – two librarians review and discuss romance novels.

    Break Room Chats, the new podcast from the New Professionals Section of the Library Leadership and Management Association of ALA. I’m biased on this one because I’m one of the hosts. Come give us a listen on iTunes or SoundCloud!
