Putnam in his own words…

One of the better features of RTE’s Morning Ireland (though it depends on the subject matter) is the length of time they give a subject to talk. It provides a more discursive interview than its UK counterpart the (often time strapped) Today programme. This morning they took advantage of Robert Putnam’s visit and spoke to him on his mobile as he was returning to the US on his theories of social capital (sound file).

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
