    Oh, Nate, how do you tease! There’s almost no chance I’ll get to New York, but I’ll wait to listen this later (waiting will be painful). Is there any chance that we could see some photos of the piece in the meantime? Enough to make your podcast make a bit more sense?

    At any rate, congratulations. I hope this is as big a thing as it seems to me it must be. Excelsior!

    Hi Ken
    I too was interested and found some images here: http://metmuseum.org/visit/museum-map/galleries/the-american-wing/742

    My ears perked up the second you said “Collis Huntington.” I grew up in the WV town named after him and his statue stands in front of the C&O Railroad Station there! Another great spoken tapestry, Nate.

    Any chance somebody could take some 360 degree photos of Gallery 742 so we can experience it in VR using Google Cardboard? That’d be amazing for all us fans in far away places!

    Love this idea.

    Can’t hear it. Loud music (bells or something) is playing over the person(s) speaking. Tried to hear it on other sites, no luck. Same problem. Something wrong with this file.

    Hi – I’m a new listener and heard this episode first. Utterly breathtaking in its content, pacing, production. So much quality packed into a few minutes … Keep up the great work, Kevin

    This is such a great episode and I’m going to go to the room because of it.

    The music really makes the scene complete.

    We would like to be in the museum to hear Nate’s “Memory Palace” but we were fortunate that the museum has a link to this room. Enlarge the screen and listen to this incredible story that Nate tells so well.

    This blew me away earlier this year when I heard it.
