The Cultivate MSS project now has its own podcast, The Cost of Culture.

Created by the project team, this podcast explores the hidden histories behind the Golden Age of book collecting. Each episode focuses on a different aspect of the lives and legacies of the major collectors and dealers in this period, and their impact on the way we see some of the world’s most treasured medieval manuscripts today. 

This podcast is for anyone who wants to know more about the Middle Ages, the book trade, or the bibliophilic exploits of some of the twentieth-century's richest men and women.

You can tune into The Cost of Culture on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Podbean, SoundCloud and Spotify.
