Chloe Medghalchi, an intern at the Centre for Research Collections (CRC), University of Edinburgh, creates interesting and thoughtful podcasts based on items in the University’s wide ranging collections. Chloe interviews staff members and carries out her own research to gain a better understanding of the material held by the CRC. She then writes, records and edits the podcasts which bring together different objects around a weekly theme.
She recently released this excellent podcast entitled ‘Broken Pieces’ which explores issues surrounding restoration, conservation, and the value of an item when it is broken. You can listen to the podcast using the link below. Keep an ear out for committee member Emily Hick, who is a Project Conservator at the CRC – she pops up throughout the episode!
