Very informative, ladies
Enjoyig your podcast. I'm about to send my daughter off to college and I'm wanting to go back and get my Master's in Museum studies. This helps. Thank you!
Specific and Great
If you are a museum person--and you know who you are, if you are--you're going to love this podcast. It might sound a lot like your internal monologue, but still. I am not a museum person, and I still like it, because I really enjoy getting the inside track on some of this stuff. Excellent resource for students, aspiring curators, and older folks who wanna stay up on things in an academic, but fun way.
