Schoolteachers are discovering that a museum field trip isn't the only way to expose their students to Native American and
frontier culture. More of them are downloading podcasts produced by the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art.
'EM Radio' now counts at least 8,000
subscribers, and it was recently recognized by a museum insiders' Web site, museumpod.com, as one of the top 10 in the world.
Communications Manager Anthony Scott said the Eiteljorg has been creating podcasts for several years, but last year buckled
down and started regular productions. The interviews are 10 to 15 minutes long and feature artists, storytellers, and recently,
Inuit throat singers. "It's a variety show of sorts," Scott said.
