Reading Stonewall: The Librarian Is In Podcast, Ep. 140
Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
It's the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and Jason Baumann—NYPL curator and Grand Marquessa of All Things Stonewall—joins Gwen and Frank to discuss the Library's new anthology about the uprising and its role in the LGBTQ civil rights movement. And then he walks us through some yoga breathing, and it's legit.
