Stump the Librarian: Oh Sail Can You Sea?

Ahoy! Jill and Liz of KDL’s Stump the Librarian Podcast are back at the helm, steering through your tough questions. In this episode, both librarians buckle up their life jackets and sail into the sea of physics. Jill explains whether a sailboat could perhaps sail forever and shares some boating trivia. Liz steps aboard the world of cruise ships and tells just how they stay afloat. Liz also recommends a fantastic nonfiction book that will surely launch your imagination out of dry dock and into open waters!
