I occasionally talk on radio and in front of other people, although strangely I am rarely invited back.

I talked about motorways with Laurie Taylor on Thinking Allowed here.

I talked about television with Lauren Laverne here.

I talked about the history of cultural studies here.

I talked to Tal Zalmanovich about Armchair Nation on the New Books Network here.

You can listen to my inaugural lecture at LJMU here.

  1. Dr Moran, just in case your interested, —[My name is David Vinter, I am nearly 80, but grey matter still OK].
    Consequently, I was schooled through WW2, and as a Lincolnshire country lad have written my memoires of that time, should you wish to see them for any comparison, please just ask, and I will download them for you.
    At age 32 and recently married, I became a mature student at Nottingham University, reading
    Jt Hons Economics /Agricultural Economics.
    Regards, David Vinter.

    • Dear David – thanks for your interest in my blog and for getting in touch. It would have been great to look at it a couple of years ago as I was looking at a lot of wartime diaries for an article I was writing about diaries. I wonder though if you have thought of donating it to the Great Diary Project based in London – they would be very interested. best wishes Joe

  2. I have just started your book On Roads. It looks very good already. I didn’t know about the M45 being a relic of the Macmillan era.


  3. I will be using piece from you. (‘human shaped hole’… If you Should Fail p146.) in the funeral service for my late daughter in law next week. I think it is a nice way to say so many things.
    Take care
