With ALA Annual taking place in New Orleans this summer, Kristin and Thomas reminisce about meeting there in 2011, plus convention observations in general. Student protests and repatriation get free, informative comics treatments. A creator objecting to misuse of his intellectual property gets labeled as "the establishment" by... an establishment.

A whole lot of news meets a whole lot of delays - what happened to our audio in February? It’s all good, just a little late. Better done than perfect, right? And these picks are so fresh they’re well within their expiration dates!

All this and more on The Secret Stacks!
