The podcasts available on the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago's website offer "Exhibition Audio Tours", "Talks and Discussions" and "Educator Salons"; something for everyone. Each podcast can be listened to online, or downloaded for later listening. Helpfully, each of the podcasts is divided into smaller "Entries", so visitors can pick and choose which parts of the podcast they would like to hear. The "Exhibition Audio Tours" includes a podcast entitled "Artists in Depth", which features curators and preparators of the MCA discussing several artists' works in an exhibition, including "Leon Golub Reclining Youth", "Bruce Nauman Elliot's Stones", and "Cindy Sherman Untitled #153". The "Educator Salons" podcasts are designed to "engage teachers in explorations of timely pedagogical issues, provide access to provocative speakers, and promote an open exchange among peers and colleagues." The podcasts appear to do just that, judging by the following podcasts "Deciphering Otherness: A Celebration of Contemporary Identity", "The 21st Century Learning Environment: Fresh Ideas, New Contexts", and "TEACHER DISPOSITIONS: The process and practice of teacher leadership". Visitors can also click on the orange "+ View Full Archive" at the top of each type of podcast for many more interesting discussions.
