In The Stacks With Barry & Latoya



In the Stacks with Barry & LaToya was a loosely library-related show that now further showcases the viewpoints on news, entertainment, books, and other issues by former Twin Lakes Library System Director and Assistant Director, Barry Reese and LaToya Davidson-Perez. Each show features a little bit of everything from general discussion to games and entertainment.


  • Discovery of New Frontiers

    It’s two weeks into the New Year, and the hosts feel 2023 will be a good year. LaToya does a lot of talking in this episode, as she’s had a lot happen between recordings. Barry is also in good spirits. The second quarter of the school year has been very good for him. Students appear actually to want to learn. T’Challa is excited about a new D&D campaign he’s in and questions the hosts about their favorite Sci-Fi trope. And, of course, there is a lot of television to talk about.

    What starts as a run-of-the-mill conversation turns into much more. Barry, LaToya, and T’Challa spent their mornings before recording the show watching very different things. True to their style, they share it with their listeners. Talk of entertainment turns to talk about sports, and finally, after T’Challa’s insightful question for the hosts, talk turns to people, culture, and equality.

  • Bed & Breakfast: Gone With The Wind

    10/09/2022 Duração: 01h15min

    Television and movies. If you’re wondering what the hosts have been watching and doing, this show is all about it. Barry continues to write and watch plenty of TV, LaToya is oblivious and distracted, and T’Challa, at sixteen years of age, remains super cool and aloof. With no final question prepared, T’Challa scrambles to find one. Learn about everyone’s favorite movies as well as the movie that they walked out on.

  • School Daze: Pill Popper

    13/08/2022 Duração: 01h29min

    The entire gang is back together, and they’ve missed each other. The runtime on this episode is on par with what it was like in the early days of the show. To think, we’re only three shows into the 15th season. As they catch up conversation turns to school and what it was like in the old days. T’Challa brings his unique view to what it’s like to be a school student in today’s classrooms.

While Barry continues watching television, going to the movies, and writing, his co-host says no to more than an hour of screen time.

    T’Challa is back. But don’t get too excited. By the end of the show, he makes it clear how he feels about one of the named hosts of the show.

  • Lazarus Staircase: Dr. Oh So Strange

    16/05/2022 Duração: 01h13min

    Another show without fan-favorite, T’Challa. However, the hosts have been quite busy themselves. LaToya is always working multiple jobs and has no time to read. On the other hand, Barry is also very busy but is relishing in the afterglow of having four of his novels released during the Unleash the Reese promotion period. Not sure what to watch on television? Barry and LaToya are here to fill in the gaps.

  • Unleash the Reese: Slap Heard Around the World

    With no T’Challa in attendance, the hosts must find a way to do the show. LaToya is reluctant, offending Barry by telling him to record early so she can be done with it. Barry even suggests upping the recording schedule. LaToya shoots down the idea. One and done is enough for her. Barry has several books about to be released in close succession, and he somehow manages to ruin Spring Break by working. LaToya’s husband, K, manages to add some humorous background noise.

It’s another farewell to Voldemort, an almost sexless year, and yes, we’re just talking about LaToya. As a whole, the hosts are doing well and watching a lot of television and reading.

The team believes that this recording schedule will make them all more committed to the show, especially for the reluctant LaToya. As always Barry tells us about what he’s watching and he also shares his Spotify year-end statistics. T’Challa shares his and LaToya remains committed to her iTunes library.

    It’s time for some turkey, well, the turkey has already been eaten. The hosts return to the show discussing what they’ve seen and what they’ve been up to in the almost month since they last recorded a show. T’Challa is still absent, a bummer for us all. On this show, the hosts address the inconsistent recording of their weekly show. Moving forward there is a new monthly format, the second Saturday of each month.

  • Once Upon A Time: False Positive

    10/07/2021 Duração: 47min

    Barry and T’Challa are uncharacteristically late for the show. LaToya, while annoyed, appreciated that they decided to grace her with their presence on the last show before a two-week break. As usual, LaToya is not happy with Barry. He made a movie recommendation that has him in the doghouse and is now one that T’Challa has to watch. Nevertheless, stick around to the end as Barry schools LaToya on some sex education.
