A background in art history (or even an interest in it) is not required to enjoy ArtCurious, a podcast that tells stories of "the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful in art history." Launched in 2016, ArtCurious is written, produced, and hosted by Jennifer Dasal, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the North Carolina Museum of Art. Visitors to ArtCurious will find (as of this writing) approximately 40 entertaining and educational episodes telling stories on a variety of topics, including rivalries between artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse (Episode #39), the true story behind the 2014 movie The Monuments Men (Episode #29), and whether English painter Walter Sickert could have been Jack the Ripper (Episodes #6-7). The ArtCurious website provides show notes with links to additional information, as well full transcripts for each episode. Listeners can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and other platforms.
