S07E01: Working From Home

Join us for a WFH special as we consider the joys and challenges of working remotely: with Kloe furloughed and Jenny working from home it’s a strange time to be a conservator. We also ask West Dean College and Cardiff University about switching to remote teaching and what this means for students. Finally, tune in for a Dear Jane about hobby conservation and some armchair travel as Jenny takes us to Herculaneum for a book review!
