Audiobooks, Libraries, and Other Adventures: Reader Chat with Amanda Garrison

Listen to this podcast episode on Spotify, Apple, or anywhere you find bookish podcasts.

For this week’s Reader Chat, I got to talk to the cohost of Fictional Hangover Podcast, Amanda Garrison. You’ll remember that my very first reader chat was with the other cohost of that show, Claire Eastaugh, so now my collection of Fictional Hangover hosts is complete.

Amanda has previously worked in several roles in public libraries, including as a teen librarian and an early literacy coordinator, so we had to geek out over libraries together for a bit. We also discuss the joys of Choose Your Own Adventure books, and made plans to launch a new podcast, and I think we were actually serious about that, so keep an eye out…

Listen to Fictional Hangover here, and find their website here.
