cardiCast episode 66 – The Presidential Debrief

Melbourne newCardigan Interview

We asked you to ask our ex President, Justine Hanna, some questions about what her life in Libraries and GLAM network is like and what her plans are for the future. We thought it fitting that our current President, Clare Presser, asks or former President these cutting questions.

What they actually did was bang on about cats, books and cheese.
And there is nothing wrong with that.

Incendium Radical Library is a community library, reading room, and publishing press with a focus on radical politics and critical literature. The library started as a challenge the commodification of libraries, whether government, university, or council based. They see a mass production of a certain type of thinking which reproduces the structures of oppression that we live under. This cardiPaty, held in February of 2019, was host by two integral volunteers, Tilly and Anna-lise, who discusses that collection’s ideologies, community support and how they keep their doors open.

Recorded Live in Athens, Greece

The second in our special cardiCast ‘Summer Series’…

Ioanna Nissiriou – We Need Books – and Varvara Svoronou – ECHO Refugee Library – speak with Justine Hanna about their work helping support refugees in Athens. These interviews were recorded in the We Need Books brand new Multicultural Library, which opened in early October 2018.

The ”interlude” music was performed by a group of musician friends enjoying coffee together and was recorded live whilst eating delicious souvlaki on a tiny street in Athens.

We know this is a longer episode than usual, however we think the content is worth the listen!
