At The Museum

AT THE MUSEUM is a short webseries produced by the [New York] Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) that shows off some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into running an art museum.

What it says on the tin. This seems like the kind of thing at least 75% of MetaFilter would enjoy - a podcast by cats. Not to be confused with Purrrcast which is a podcast about cats.
