#2 The Curator

We take a trip to Ottawa to see Glenn Gould's chair for the first time.


In this episode, we take a trip to Ottawa to visit Glenn Gould's chair and are surprised by where we find it. We also take a tour of the backroom collection of Gould artifacts at the Canadian Museum of History. The tour opens up a discussion about and significance behind maintaining seemingly everyday objects once owned by Gould, as historical artifacts.

Interviews include Canadian Museum of History curator Judith Klassen, and National Arts Centre archivist Robert Vanderberg.
