Iszi Lawrence talks to Julianne Phippard, the British Museum's first preventative conservator. They discuss how the Museum keeps the collection safe from pests, light, and chemicals and even give you some top tips for saving a mobile phone that you've dropped in the toilet.
The British Museum Membercast is a monthly podcast made available to ‘all studious and curious persons’. Comedian, podcaster and super-fan Iszi Lawrence (The Z List Dead List) presents snippets from exclusive Members’ lectures at the Museum, artfully woven together with interviews and her own musings.
