A podcast from Sno-Isle Libraries for lifelong learners with inquiring minds.

Episode 5: From roots to rockets with Rob Branigin

Rob Branigin listens during his January, 2018 interview with Mary Margaret Haugen, a former state lawmaker and local official in the Stanwood area, as part of an oral history project.

Librarian Rob Branigin’s interests range from family roots to outer space. Branigin, along with co-hosts Ken Harvey and Cindy Tingley, delves into genealogy, Star Trek and more. The Indiana native discusses his own discovery of the library’s rich resources that can help satisfy that need for finding one’s familial connections. An avowed Trekkie, Branigin also boldly goes into his assessment of the original series, “The Next Generation,” “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager.”
