So we took the opportunity to sit down with her while it was all still fresh in her mind. In this episode of the podcast, Courtney talks to Alice and I about how the opportunity for the research trip came about, the lessons we could learn from American museums, and what they could learn from us. 

She also talks about how being away makes you appreciate what you have at home. This episode of the podcast is full of stories that let you vicariously visit some of the most interesting and beautiful museums and galleries in America.
