I’m a Dublin-based assistant news editor and reporter at TheJournal.ie. On this blog I write when the mood takes me about pop culture, feminism, music, TV, film and the world around me. Sometimes I feature 35mm photos I’ve taken on my travels.
I co-present the culture podcast Get Around To It with my pal Lauren Murphy, an arts journalist – you can find it on all major podcast providers, just click this link. Every month we meet up (virtually!) to chat about TV, books, film and music we recommend.
I contribute or have contributed to:

Arena, Sean O’Rourke Show, Marian Finucane Show, Drive Time, Late Debate on RTE Radio 1, Dave Fanning Show on 2FM, Tonight With Vincent Browne on TV3, The Last Word on Today FM, On The Record with Gav Reilly on Newstalk, Newstalk Breakfast with Susan Keogh

For three years I hosted a weekly radio show called Sweet Oblivion on the digital station RTE 2XM,
The diptych-style photos I feature are all taken by me on a Golden Half half-frame 35mm camera and the medium-format square photos were taken using my Lomography Diana F+.
The 35mm pics are taken on a Canon AE 1. There are more on my Flickr account.

Great blog, it’s not often someone can say post that interview you did with Mark Kolelek and it gets published within ten minutes! During lunch i may add!
Hey! thanks a million dudes 🙂 thanks for visiting and reading, much appreciated.
Mark – ha! Now that’s what I call a good service 😉
Hey! I had posted a message looking for a ‘from scratch’ green curry but had no way of emailing you to get it. And instead happened upon this sweet space. I love it! my email address is hello at meghantelpner dot com. Fun!
Caught your show on 2xm by chance during a sunday morning lie-in. Think I’ve found a new radio show to supplement my BBC6 addiction. Nice one dude!
