Allison and Mary tackle the debate of having large, international, and sometimes not so ethical companies sponsor museum exhibitions! We talk specifically about BP and their partnerships with places such as Tate Modern and the British Museum. Disclaimer: We're sorry for the audio in this one, we had some mic troubles but figured the content was good enough that hopefully you all wouldn't mind!
