    The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice, and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside unless it makes you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'Hmm'. Secondly, it is almost completely empty. Fortunately, helping to fill its vacant plinths is a gathering of the world's most original minds.

    Overall

    Simple concept, but well done. 2 hosts, in character as curators of a "museum of curiosity," each show has 3 guests from a variety of backgrounds, who "donate" an item to the museum (such as "the Nottingham Alabasters" or "Epping Forest" or "Silence") and then discuss why they feel it's worthy of inclusion. Fun way to explore odd topics in a half-hour format. Some guests are well-known, others not, but no dunces among them. I'd like to find more like this.

    Also well-recorded, you can hear what everyone says, clearly.
