I've been pencilled in for an 18 Doughty Street appearance in early May. Like many bloggers, I am probably more eloquent in writing than in person (which in my case means I'm really in trouble). Just to dampen visual expectations, I'm a short, pasty-faced bloke with a whiny Brummie accent - if I wasn't balding I'd look younger than 32. My enthusiasm can come across as hyperactivity. Otherwise, I'm just a normal bloke.
I harbour fantasies of a verbal jousting with Alex Hilton, but the truth is that the topic for discussion is going to be local election results which will bring out the not-so-inner political geek in me. I'm slightly concerned about all the things that I disagree with Iain Dale about coming to the surface live on air. I'm by no means experienced with the medium of TV so any well-meaning practical advice would be gratefully received (should I wear my McLenin T-shirt?). On-topic, I'm going to a conference on arguing this week.
