Museums are a fascinating place to visit, especially on a school excursion or on a rainy day. But behind the glass, and the velvet ropes, what stories really lie behind the artefacts? Are the plaques telling an honest, truthful account of history?

TV host and podcaster Marc Fennell returns to What Shall We Do About...? for the first time in nearly two years. His podcast series for the ABC, Stuff the British Stole, burst onto the podcast charts late in 2020 and delves into a number of museum-held items and their histories. In this conversation, we talk about the making of Marc’s podcast, whether cancel culture should exist within the walls of the museum, and how we should best respond to what’s on display.

You can hear season one of Stuff the British Stole on the ABC Listen app, or wherever you get your podcasts. Marc Fennell is on Twitter @MarcFennell and Instagram @MarcFennell.
