More please!

I love this podcast a lot, the first two episodes were great and the third was good too. I hope this keeps happening!

The Paradox of (less) Choice

We have too few of these episodes, and yet to ask for
more seems greedy. This is the classic Zeno's Podcast Paradox wherein one can never have enough of a series regardless of an infinite number of available episodes. If only there was a passive aggression-free way to get them! Oh woe is us, the listening Publick, that we yearn for many, many eps and yet, there are none more (but three at the time of this writing.) Send help--or at the least--one more sweet, sweet 'sode.

Note to fans of this podcast: There is another podcast series based on the collections called "A History of the World in 100 Objects" with the director of the museum as host. If you like this one you'll love that one.

Fantastic Historical Perspective

Loved the first two episodes telling the story of protecting museum objects during WW II. Waiting for more behind the scenes stories about the British museum!
