In Conversation with….Sian Powell

21 Nov

I was joined for this episode of the ‘In Conversation with…’ series by my good friend Sian Powell. For various reasons I had to cancel the recording twice before we eventually got together so thanks to Sian for her patience.


Sian is a PhD student studying the role of the media and devolution. She has previously written for the Huffington post on culture and democracy and is also a lecturer with Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.

Amongst other things we discussed the way the UK media has reported divergence in the education systems of Wales and England and how Wales can sell its qualifications to a media that is disinterested. Unfortunately I accidentally stopped the recording half way through so it comes in two parts as a result. Click below for the audio.

You can also hear the conversation on my Soundcloud here (Part 1) and here (Part 2).

The Carrot Cake

The accompanying carrot cake came from Kemis in Pontcanna. Very nice it was too.
