Episode Twenty-Two - "You should keep writing things!"
This week, with special guest Matthew Murray...
Mind Grapes: Matthew introduces us to the wacky world of Tsutomu Nihei; Alli's been rewatching the arguably even wackier Mystery Science Theater 3000; Sam breaks her New Year's resolution just a teeny bit to revisit Pastwatch.
Class Z(ed): Matthew fills us in on the world of zines - what they are, the vast diversity in their style and content, how they're made/traded/sold/shared, and the way they empower their creators and consumers (who are very often one and the same). Plus, we talk zines about librarians, zines in traditional libraries, and homegrown libraries of zines.
