Very few people are lucky enough to witness the opening of Andy Warhol's Time Capsules. Starlee Kine was one of those people and she recorded this segment for Episode #514 of the "This American Life" podcast. Kine spoke with the team responsible for opening the capsules about their very unique jobs and a few of the highlights that come along with it, like finding photos of Warhol without his wig, another of a naked Rob Lowe wrapped in a toy snake, original and never-before-seen Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat pieces, and various other goodies thought to be lost to the world forever.

Kine's retelling of the event is great, and so is hearing from the curators first-hand. Take a listen:
