Welcome to That's a Shocker, a Wichita State University Libraries podcast!
Join the friendly members of the Wichita State University Libraries staff for this fun infotainment and news podcast. Monthly episodes feature content on a different topic that we have researched using the Libraries’ vast information resources. At the end of the episodes, you'll hear announcements, upcoming events, and other important updates about the Libraries.
Episode notes contain links to some of the featured content.
For the final episode of 2021, the That's a Shocker cast is joined by Sara Dixon of the Wichita Public Library to talk different literary genres - including a few that deserve a deep dive!
