Really Good and Additive

So much to learn about the underlying structures that make up museums and a global reach!

令人印象深刻的博物馆大观园

Ian的广播站内容丰富同时又影响广泛,期中对博物馆和社会的思考与分析令人印象深刻。尤其是有关废弃游乐场的第七篇,让我想起了以前看过的一篇关于废弃的游戏虚拟世界的文章,引起了有趣的共鸣。诸如此类的闪光点还有很多,期待以后能经常更新。我会把这个推荐给感兴趣的朋友们,让他们一定不要错过如此精彩的电台。

It is becoming more and more interesring. And I listened to it in China. Hello Ian! Nice job.

Great podcast!

I really enjoy listening to this podcast! As a former museum interpreter and museum lover, I look forward to each new podcast. Ian is concise but never cursory and I love the broad swath of museums— it’s like a mini trip in 15 minutes!
