Today you'll hear from that echelon who are really running America's museums: the board. This is where the real power in museums resides. We'll find out if these trustees have fully grasped the issues that museums need to tackle today. Do they have ambitious enough solutions? Who makes sure the museum sticks to its mission, or that the trustees are doing their job? After all - who governs the governors?

Tune in to find out. 

Guests: Sarah Arison, Fred Bidwell, Pam Kramlich, Jill Kraus, Larry Marx, Brooke A. Minto, Victoria Rogers and Marc Schwartz

New episodes available every other Wednesday.

Having examined the pressure mounting on institutions from the street, the public galleries and then from within - this penultimate museum-focused episode asks who’d want to run one? Hosts Charlotte Burns and Allan Schwartzman ask the director of the Met how comfortable that throne really is. Who should run the nation’s museums? Who’d want to, amidst a world of shifting certainties? Hope & Dread has the answers.

Tune in to find out.

Guests: Catherine Arias, Sarah Arison, Fred Bidwell, Deana Haggag, Max Hollein, Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Naima J. Keith, Jill Kraus, Mia Locks, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Dr Kelli Morgan, Hank Willis Thomas and Amy Webb

We’re going behind the scenes at the museum to better understand the recent groundswell of voices criticizing museum power structures as they exist, coming in the form of unionization efforts, artist-led activism and open letters by disgruntled staff. Are museums practicing what they preach? After all, if you can perfectly preserve a 14th-Century Persian carpet in a climate-controlled glass vitrine, shouldn't you be able to look after your staff, too? 

Tune in to find out. 

Guests: Catherine Arias, Fred Bidwell, Deana Haggag, Kathy Halbreich, Max Hollein, Kristan Kennedy, Mia Locks, Larry Marx, Ashley Stull Meyers and Marc Schwartz
