My three minutes of radio fame ... in part due to @ConversationUK ...

One has been prolifically writing articles for The Conversation for almost a year having enjoyed a very positive readership. A recent personal whimsy article on Vinegar Valentines has produced an interesting result.

Exploring the idea that the notion of sending unkind love letters circa 200 years ago is akin to the modern phenomenon of trolling. BBC Radio 4 approached me lunchtime on Valentines Day to see if I was interested in being interviewed for a short slot on their Saturday edition of the PM programme.

Of course I said yes, sharing with amused wife, daughter, son and onlooking friend.

The show remains for around 30 days, it is not difficult to find. Also.a low quality version of the interview is available with full rights attributed to the BBC.

For academics looking to develop their public profiles; I will again share that The Conversation has the reach to help this happen. You have to be prepared to adjust to their style while maintaining academic credibility. You have to also recognise that some articles are worth doing as they appeal to a quickly passing zeitgeist and may be syndicated to other media outlets.
