The College Episode

Mike and Cynthia talk to two 2016 high school grads about their experiences and expectations of their first year in college and three 2017 high school grads about their hopes for their first year in college.  We also introduce a new segment called Stacking Up that looks at statistics and Hinsdale.

Our first minisode! Fusion

Cynthia talks to Lisa Knasiak about Fusion, the Library’s all ages program on Saturday, September 16. This year’s theme is Oil + Water and in addition to programs featuring oil or water, Schools Count will be on hand to accept donations for hurricane relief in Texas and Florida.

All the 4th of July

Mike and Cynthia explore the past and present of the 4th of July in Hinsdale – donkeys and turtles and books. Find out a secret to winning a turtle race, how the Village came to run the parade, a coincidence spanning a century and how to get a book from the Library’s float (spoiler alert: just show up!)

Spinsdalean – Origin

Two Hinsdale institutions, the Hinsdalean and the Hinsdale Public Library, decided to work together to create a community focused podcast. The Hinsdalean recently celebrated 10 years of offering quality community journalism in Hinsdale. In our first episode, librarians, Mike and Cynthia sat down with the founders of the Hinsdalean to find out how they became involved in journalism and in Hinsdale. Not surprisingly, it is the people of Hinsdale – their stories and images that are at the core.
