We’re Jenny, Kloe, and Christina. We’re the team behind The C Word: The Conservators’ Podcast. We talk about all sorts of things from the perspective of conservation professionals, from museum trends and new technology to the big issues like pay and staying safe at work. Feel free to listen even if you’re not a conservator though – we welcome people from all sorts of backgrounds!

Why The C Word? In some museums conservation can be a bit of a naughty word but we think it ought to be celebrated. In our working lives we’re surrounded by c-words: conserving, curating, collecting, caring, consolidating, curing, creating, condition checking, and of course: conservators.

In each episode we try to interview someone interesting (not always a conservator!) and review something nice (a book, app, tool etc.). If you think that sounds like your cup of tea and you like the work we do you should help us out!

You can listen to us here:

By supporting us on Patreon we can keep producing content for you to enjoy. You know how starving artists had patrons in the good old Renaissance days? Botticelli had the Medici family, da Vinci had Sforza and Borgia, and we — well we have you guys! (And you’d all look at least as handsome as those people. Seriously.)

You might be wondering what on earth we’d need money for (it’s a well known fact that conservators subsist purely on good intentions and the dust of their enemies) but the simple truth is: it costs money to run a podcast. Our outgoings are humble (domain costs, server costs, the occasional bit of equipment that can’t be mended any further) but they add up. Any help at all — even just a dollar per month — can really help us meet those costs.

Give us a listen. If you like it, tell your friends about it. And if you can, please consider donating to help us continue making it.
