Those interested in learning about art museums behind the scenes may want to check out Art + Ideas, a podcast produced by The Getty in Los Angeles as part of The Iris, the museum's blog. In Art + Ideas, Getty president Jim Cuno interviews curators, artists, writers, and scholars in a series of wide-ranging conversations. Examples of recent topics include a curator-led audio tour of the Getty exhibit "Beyond the Nile--Egypt and the Classical World," a discussion of the destruction wrought upon Reims Cathedral in France during World War I, and conversations exploring the creation of the Getty Center's campus in retrospect of its opening twenty years ago. Episodes can be streamed in the browser or via SoundCloud, and each is accompanied by links to relevant works in the J. Paul Getty Museum or other resources, as well as a full transcript. They tend to range from approximately thirty minutes to an hour in length, and new episodes of Art + Ideas are released about every two weeks.
