The Public Library Association's online publication, Public Libraries Online, launched a podcast in 2015 dedicated to discussing issues relating to public librarianship. The podcast is hosted by Kathleen Hughes, Manager of Publications for the Public Library Association, and features a number of guest experts. Each episode of the podcast ranges between approximately ten and twenty-five minutes in length and explores a specific topic that may be of interest to the public library community. In one recent episode, Hughes talks to John Spears, the director of the Pikes Peak Library District in Colorado, about providing services to patrons who are homeless. In another recent episode, Hughes interviews Nicholas Higgins, Director of Outreach Services at Brooklyn Public Library, about his work in providing library services to jails and prisons. Each episode of this podcast is accompanied by a list of resources for those interested in further exploring the topics discussed on this show.
