Great material

These podcasts were a great find. The narrator makes each discussion engaging through both voice and presentation. So happy to find them as they'll make a great addition to my Non-Western Art History course. Plus their a breath of fresh air next to typical class lectures. Thanks AAP!

Fun and provocative

So pleased to have discovered this series of podcasts. The host combines discussions with images and references to collections in musuems both in the States and abroad. His style is direct and approachable: altogether a delight to experience. I've been haunting the "additional resources" on the website as well.
