April 1 Special: Mister Information III: Beans & Rice

Hello, and welcome to Mister Information– an offshoot trivia podcast for gents [and ladies] who kind of enjoy trivia but also sticking it to annoying teams at pub quiz.  In this very special episode, Steve and Josh examine two in-demand pantry staples: beans and rice. Actually, it’s not so much “rice” as it is “the films of Wes Anderson”. There’s a connection there, really! Then, a new segment entitled “In the Not-Too-Distant Past-Perfect”, and a quiz on rice, Weses, and Andersons.

122½ – Black Friday Special: Maneater

*Content warning: Cannibalism*

Oh, did you enjoy Gorge Day in the U.S.? For this Black Friday special, we’re joined in-studio by three of the coolest librarians covering a topic by which we’re all truly fascinated: cannibalism. Cassie Guthrie, Beth Merkle, and Laura Osterhout are here to tease their December 13th fundraiser event in the Rochester area: Christmas with the Donner Party: A History Happy Hour with Historian Maya Rook. [All proceeds benefit New Yorkers for Better Libraries.] Today, we discuss cannibalism in literature, television, film, historical events, and [obviously] serial killers. Later, enjoy a quiz called “The Opposite of Cannibalism”!
