Fun range of interesting topics

I love that I hear a little bit of everything in this podcast, and from Smithsonian experts no less. I also appreciate that the episodes aren’t too long. It’s easy to fit one in on the work commute.

Love this podcast!

This podcast so great! It does a great job of not only telling the story but making it interesting. The podcast is also fun to hear about the items that the stories talk about. Now if I ever go to one of the museums again I will look for the items talked about. Can’t wait for more episodes!
