Today on Living Heritage, we’re talking pigeons, podcasts, and public history with the staff of the Admiralty House Communications Museum in Mount Pearl. Our guests are Sarah Wade, and Lauren Lambe. Sarah Wade is museum manager and holds a BA in History/Archaeology, and an Honours in Applied Museum Studies from Algonquin College. Lauren Lambe is the museum’s collection assistant and is currently completing her Masters in Public History from University of Western Ontario. Together, they have created "Pigeon Post" -- a podcast produced by staff at Admiralty House. Through storytelling as well as oral history interviews, this podcast aims to keep the history of Admiralty House alive, while also focusing on elements of the community of Mount Pearl.
