  1. Screaming Inside Our Hearts

    We’ve all had workdays that feel more like a roller-coaster ride. You can be sailing after a great instruction session, only to be derailed by a deadline moved up to tomorrow. Or maybe you’ve finished a major project and are ready for a quiet desk shift…that quickly becomes a fight with the world’s trickiest paper jam. We’re all familiar with these ups and downs. But what do you do when the whole coaster changes — when the work path explained when you were hired takes an unexpected turn? Suddenly, you’re heading into a blind curve, unable to see where the tracks are leading you. Do you throw your hands up and lean into the twists and turns, or do you hang on for dear life and scream inside your heart? In this podcast, we will be talking about how, after a hiatus in the formal librarian review process, we soared into a few surprise loops of uncertainty. We will provide tips for those going through unexpected changes on the track toward promotion or contract renewal and provide resources that have helped us - including articles, podcasts and books.

  2. VACATIONLAND Live in Toronto

    This is a live recording of VACATIONLAND, the show that became the book of the same name. I recorded it on 9/29/2015 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto. It’s maybe my best performance of the show, and certainly my favorite. I had performed it at another venue the night before in Toronto and made the mistake of reading a review of that performance just hours before I went to the QE. The reviewer really disliked the show, which was his right. People like what they like, and he really hated what he hated. But my worry was that people who had tickets for the Queen Elizabeth show would read it and stay home. They didn’t. Everyone showed up and it was one of the truly warmest and loudest and happiest crowds I’ve ever played to. It was a reminder. John Flansburgh told me when I first started doing my version of comedy that in live performance, sometimes you just get punched in the stomach. Bad review. No show crowd. Whatever. But you get up and you do it again anyway. Thank you Toronto for reminding me to keep getting up. I hope you keep getting up. Anyway, I just decided to post this, so I had to pick some album art quick, so I grabbed this blurry photo of me in Maine last year and those are lobsters as epaulets, obviously. Toronto, I salute you. That is all. JH

  4. Dude, you broke the Future!

    We’re living in yesterday’s future, and it’s nothing like the speculations of our authors and film/TV producers. As a working science fiction novelist, I take a professional interest in how we get predictions about the future wrong, and why, so that I can avoid repeating the same mistakes. Science fiction is written by people embedded within a society with expectations and political assumptions that bias us towards looking at the shiny surface of new technologies rather than asking how human beings will use them, and to taking narratives of progress at face value rather than asking what hidden agenda they serve.

    In this talk, author Charles Stross will give a rambling, discursive, and angry tour of what went wrong with the 21st century, why we didn’t see it coming, where we can expect it to go next, and a few suggestions for what to do about it if we don’t like it.
