Why: 

What makes the National Gallery Podcast different and unique? Designed to offer a new perspective on the Gallery and its world-class painting collection, our monthly podcast takes a magazine format focusing on 3 or 4 diverse topics. Our regular host Miranda Hinkley carries the show introducing a surprisingly diverse mix of world-class academics, curators and historians off set with a variety of voices: from practicing artists to life coaches and firework experts. The podcast is designed to offer a new, contemporary and relevant perspective on all things National Gallery. It's designed to challenge preconceptions, engage and delight the audience. Using a rich audio texture each podcast transports you to the world of the Gallery, offering a relevant and contemporary experience.
