Locked deep beneath The Museum is...The Museum's Shadow! Inside this secret, trapdoored cellar is an exhibition filled with artifacts, fossils and thick cobwebs. Some artifacts are brought into the light on Twitter: @museumsshadow

HOOKED! Just CAN’T get ENOUGH!
I LOVE these stories from The Musuem’s Shadow! I’ve been following their Twitter account, @museumshadow, for a while now, but just recently became addicted to the podcast. My only complaint is that I wish there were more episodes to listen to! The storytelling is reminiscent to good Stephen King book, but with the fun, mischief, and playfulness writing similar to J.K. Rowling’s stories. The curator, Aaron Bergeron, has an animated voice perfect for sharing the eccentric history behind each artifact in a way that draws you in, and makes you BEG for more. I can’t wait for more episodes to come out!
Worth staying up late for!
The Museum's Shadow podcast - spawn of the Museum Shadow's Twitter feed (@museumsshadow) - is what might result if an NPR reporter sneaked backstage at the Muppet Show and interviewed Jim Henson about the stories behind the objects lying around there. Aaron Bergeron is an original voice (petrified fog!?) and this podcast is totally worth staying up past one's bedtime for. More please!
Aaron Bergeron ("the Curator") wrote for THE DAILY SHOW, and he brings the same level of wit to this inventive podcast, exploring mysterious and mystical found objects from the lyrical to the terrifying. I look forward to every new episode!
