Welcome to the very first Membercast from the British Museum...

The Membercast is a monthly series that lets you enjoy snippets from the exclusive Members' lectures here at the Museum. It's presented by comedian, podcaster and BM super-fan Iszi Lawrence. 

In our first episode, Iszi sneaks into the back of the lecture theatre to hear curators John Giblin and Chris Spring present an overview of the special exhibition South Africa: the art of a nation at the exclusive Members’ lecture earlier this year.

Iszi also tracked down the project curator Laura Snowling – with the conversation taking a rather unexpected direction…

Expect to learn about some of the key objects in the exhibition as well as how to say 'I love my rabbit' in Bulgarian. No, really. You have been warned...

Many of the objects mentioned in the podcast can be viewed here: http://britishmuseum.tumblr.com/tagged/SouthAfricanArt

We hope you enjoy our first podcast - please share your comments and feedback! 

You can talk to us on Twitter @britishmuseum using the hashtag #membercast
