We the Museum is a podcast for museum workers who want to form a more perfect institution. Hosted by the field’s go-to podcast person, Hannah Hethmon, each episode features museum workers in the US and beyond, exploring ideas, programs, and exhibitions that inform and inspire. This means everything from digitization and collections management to unionization and decolonization. We the Museum is a space where we can all slow down and take a moment away from the day-to-day work to learn, grow, and expand our toolkit.
