This month we'll talk with Professors Penny Hazelton and Mike Chiorazzi about law librarianship as a career and about law library education. NOTE to new listeners: For this episode, I used a new microphone set up and it picked up lots of paper shuffling - and it's annoying. We've identified the problem and future shows will be much cleaner and easier to listen to. This one is worth it, despite the distractions. I apologize for the sound.... RL

Practically overnight, Excelsior Springs grew from a farming community to a luxury resort town known as "America's Haven of Health." Discover tales of the famous and infamous who sought out treatments for various ills of the day. Many who arrived hoping to be restored by in the waters that gushed forth from the depths may still linger on as spirits.
