We're now podcasting thanks to the internet skills of our forward thinking Secretary - Chris Bridgeford. While there are some Museum Podcasts on the Internet the Friends are the first voluntary group in the museum sector to have produced our own podcasts.
The first two short podcasts in an ongoing series, are conversations recorded with Hilda Cumiskie a former Vice Convener of The Moray Council and David Morgan, former editor of the Forres Gazette, on the subjects of politics in the past and a dog with its own political viewpoint.

The Friends Podcasts can be accessed through the itunes store by simply searching for “Museum” or “
