Meanwhile, in the meedja

June 12, 2012 in Culture, Mastermind, Quiz Show

We are now entering the quizapocalypse (ie Summer) so I’d expect posts on the blog to thin out a bit.

To tide you over, here are a couple of articles from the last week that caught the eye.

Firstly, you can read Paddy Duffy’s entertaining Huffington Post article on the Irish heat of the World Quizzing Championships (and his participation in it) last week.  You can find it at www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/paddy-duffy/enter-the-eggheads-taking_b_1577377.html

Second, Eoin Butler, a man who hails from the same part of the country as myself (read, within six miles) was invited into the Mastermind Ireland studio recently, to sample the questioning style of Nora Owen.  You can see how he got on, and what he thinks of the show, by visiting the Irish Times site at www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/weekend/2012/0609/1224317551350.html
