In the Spotlight

Media:

Radio 4 or Jazz FM in the house, Radio Wales in the office, Spotify, Netflix to fuel my box set addictions, The Times and Guardian delivered to my iPad and BBC and WalesOnline for web-based news on the go.

Twitter:

@caitlinmoran, Times columnist and all-round journalist heroine.

Experience:

Doing a 50 mile bike ride for Barnardos with minimal training. The sense of achievement at the finish line was just fantastic.

Places:

Pendine Sands in west Wales and Havana, somewhere I’d love to return.

Food:

Fish, halloumi and cauliflower cheese, not necessarily together.

Drink:

Gin and tonic or a nice bottle of Rioja.

Hobby:

Reading, politics and pub quizzes.

Afternoon:

A brisk walk in the Wye Valley followed by a nice meal and glass of wine. Boring but true. Sorry.

Social media:

Twitter (I’ve been hooked from the beginning) and Instagram for pimping my pictures.

Quote:

“Anything’s possible if you have enough nerve” – J.K Rowling.

Bright spot:

The highlight of an early music journalism career was interviewing Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Motown legends Martha Reeves and Edwin Starr. The lowlight? Having to review a Hearsay concert. On a bank holiday.
