Show Notes

[Note to the first-downloaders: Due to some technical issues, we've re-uploaded the podcast. There was a mysteriously missing 10 or so minutes around the 50 minute mark! -- BJ (8/1/20 6:38 PST)]

A free-wheelin' episode this week! Liz & Brad start off by talking about what's become of Wolfman Books since our last episode, and further lessons that a non-institutional space can offer. Then they get into the meat & potatoes -- pandemic bookselling & customer service. It gets passionate!

They're joined in the second half by their good pal Emma Ramadan, co-owner of riffraff in Providence, Rhode Island. Our trio get into the weeds of bookselling and discuss how riffraff's outdoor bookstore is going, the upsides and down of virtual events and (unsurprising if you know Emma & Brad) contentious perspectives on Bookshop. Fun!

As ever: feel free to email us at [email protected], if you have any thoughts, confessions, accusations, etc. We love hearing from our fellow booksellers.
