On May 8, 2014 the Modern Art Notes Podcast spotlighted "Carleton Watkins: The Stanford Albums" at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. On the program were three essayists from the Exhibition Catalogue:

Alexander Nemerov is a professor of the arts and humanities at Stanford. His most recent books are “To Make a World: George Ault and 1940s America,” the catalogue to the exhibition of the same title he curated at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Acting in the Night: Macbeth and the Places of the Civil War.” His most recent book is “Wartime Kiss: Visions of the Moment in the 1940s,” a look at the power of American photographs and films from the 1940s.

Erik Steiner is the Creative Director of the Spatial History Project, a part of the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis at Stanford. His recent projects include "Shaping the West," which examined how the railroad impacted the construction of space in the 19th-century West.

Corey Keller is a curator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and one of America’s top experts on 19th-century photography. Keller’s exhibitions include “Brought to Light: Photography and the Invisible, 1840-1900,” which explored the use of photography in 19th-century science. Her other exhibitions include surveys of Henry Wessel and Francesca Woodman.
