In Episode 59 of District of Conservation, Gabriella interviews High Caliber History’s Logan Metesh. Logan is a noted freelance firearms historian. Before branching out on his own, he worked for the Smithsonian Institution, National Park Service, and the NRA Museum. Unlike many in his field, he’s a Millennial and one who specializes in firearms. 

He discussed: 

  • His background and what led him to working in this industry
  • His past employment
  • Misconceptions about curating 
  • Insight into museum work and historians’ perceptions of firearms
  • His freelance work in the present day
  • The most memorable item he’s ever handled or encountered
  • Why POMA is a great avenue for budding outdoor communicators
  • Why it’s important for listeners to patronage museums and support them
