#658 05.10 The Unhappy Deciders Making big decisions about other people's lives can feel pretty awful.

#664 28.12 The Room of Requirement Libraries aren't just for books.

This week, we have stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required. 59:33
