I know I’m probably not the only NPR junkie out there. Listening to the radio is how I get most of my news.
Probably my favorite NPR program, though, is Boston’s own On Point, hosted by Tom Ashbrooke. The program does two hours each day of thoughtful discussion on current events. It feels like eavesdropping on a discussion by the smartest people in the room at a really great cocktail party.
Here’s a roundup of episodes that deal with museums. Enjoy!
Who Owns the Elgin Marbles?
Recovering the National Parks
The Gardner Heist and Stolen Art
Reframing ‘American Art’: The New Wing at the Boston MFA
