4 Comments on A Scavenger Hunt (The Met Residency Episode 7)

    What a treat this was, Nick! I have no quarrel with any of your episodes, as they all leave my heart a little brighter. This piece was especially playful and let me think how fun it would be to take in an exhibit with you and enjoy it from your eyes. Your narration and still my freedom to choose what to focus on.

    I especially enjoyed the happy coincidence that I listened to this episode on Aug 8 (8-8) which is Infinity Day. A day made to celebrate Art, Philosophy, Science and Life. Well played, indeed.

    Thank you. For this episode and for your entire podcast.

    Despite your warning that this episode would not be at its best away from the museum, I must disagree. As I listened from the other side of the world, in the wintertime here, I found my imagination’s own journey through your sound poem completely transfixing! Not ‘seeing’ what you were describing took my experience to a whole other level. And Mary Lattimore’s music was integral to that. Thank you!

    P.S. And I just loved the notion of picking up an object on display and squirreling it away in my virtual pocket – if only all museum and gallery audio tours were so compelling!

    I Love your podcast, which I found after lea Taub’s recommdation. My only suggestion would be that you find a way to allow listeners to hear several sessions at a time, without having to go back to the phone to click on a different episode.

    In any case, it’s a great program. I loved the one in rhyme, about McGurdy, but I have liked many others as well, including The Fresh Pond piece. (I used to live in Cambridge.)

    I hope someone gives you a lot of money and you become a big star.
