Classes are ending, exams are beginning, and it is COLD in Regina (and many places)!
If you need a break from studying or working, or maybe just some general de-stressing time, check out the festive fun on our Library Leisure guide! We’ve updated our Christmas and Kwanzaa tabs with new recipes, videos about celebrations around the world, and much more. If these holidays aren’t your cup of figurative tea, we’ve got a virtual Escape Room! Just looking for study music, a good read, or relaxing with a great film? We’ve got you covered.
Many of our librarians and staff listen to numerous podcasts on an amazing variety of topics, and today we have a listening recommendation from librarian Kaetlyn Phillips:
“When podcasts hosts proudly call themselves “Methodology Queens,” I know I’m going to be interested! Maintenance Phase, hosted by Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes, is a scathing and hilarious look at the diet and wellness industry. The hosts break down bad research, bad data, and common stereotypes about all our favourite and hated fad diets and exercise plans. Great for people who love deep dive research podcasts. However, if diet and wellness talk is triggering, check out You’re Wrong About or Sawbones for similar diet-free content.”
This year, Hanukkah takes place from November 28th to December 6th. Try out some new (or new to you) recipes, learn about the celebrations, check out some great reading and more at our updated Hanukkah tab on the Library Leisure page.
