LISTen: An LISNews.org Program -- Episode #149

This week's episode contains a rather large news review. There wasn't a major connecting thread to the news this week outside the shutdown-that-was-not. Since that fizzled we look at the scattered news bits that deserve consideration.

Welcome back! After hopefully debugging a problem with feed generation that has possibly left subscribers hanging for about five weeks, we have a new episode. Previous episodes remain available for manual download and an experimental initiative is underway to additionally deposit copies with the Internet Archive, California's digital virtual library.

In light of the Dale Askey and Jeffrey Beall cases in Canada for libel, we talk in this episode about the dangerous possibility of challenges erupting in those cases to the notion of librarianship actually being a profession. The case is laid out as to how librarianship may not necessarily be considered truly a profession in contemporary terms on a level with medicine or law. Following that a new miscellany is presented and the show is concluded with USDA Radio's Susan Carter presenting a feature about the Agriculture Department's Rural Utilities Service working to bridge the Digital Divide in parts of the United States.

We apologize for not giving you much of a podcast. With the news being dominated by The Syrian Question and yet more NSA surveillance revelations, we have not found anything notable on the domestic front to talk about in libraries. This episode brings a relay of the President's weekly address that aired on Saturday, September 7, 2013.

We hope the news cycle improves in the week ahead. Please remember that the President of the United States will address the nation via television on Tuesday night at 9 PM Eastern.

The in-episode audio quite incorrectly identifies this episode as #260 which was last week. This is the sixth anniversary of production, though.
