MORE PODCASTING LIKE THIS IN OUR FIELD PLEASE
You can tell from just the first episode that a ton of thought and work has gone into this podcast. The hosts have a great repor and do such a great job of laying out complicated subjects and breaking down assumptions and euphamisms around their subject. This is how our field should be using podcasting! Highly reccomend everyone in the museum/art/library/cultural sector give it a listen. For white museum professionals, it's critical to listen and absorb this wisdom if we are serious about deconstructing our hold on this field.
Down with mean cubes!
We love the Whitest Cube!
