1) You’re having a dinner party, which Welsh people are at your table?
Adam Price - because of his personal story. Very interesting man who has faced a lot of adversity in his life. His experiences of the strikes in a mining family, his personal battles etc.
Meic Stephens - because of his tireless work for the language, and to hear his experiences of the 60s in Aber and the start of language campaigning with Cymdeithas
Nigel Owens - he’s a great story-teller with some great stories to tell.
Gruffudd ap Cynan - because I’d want to hear what it was like growing up as a product of the Viking Age in the Irish Sea region. His mother’s family were Hiberno-Norse from Dublin and his father’s family were princes of Gwynedd so he had all sides of it. Plus he fought the Normans for good measure.
Megan Lloyd-George - she was the first female MP in Wales and an early campaigner for a Welsh Parliament.
Beca Brown - so I can hear the story of how she ended up in Bryste (as hinted at by her father in his interview with Beti George)
2) What’s your most memorable experience in Welsh?
Being interviewed by Garry Owen on Radio Cymru.
3) Tell us either about your favourite place in Wales, or a place you’d love to visit?
My favourite place is Castell y Bere - it was a castle of Llewelyn Fawr and sits at the end of one of the most beautiful drives in Wales, winding behind Cadair Idris
4) Given unlimited funds, how would you spend St David’s Day next year?
Unlimited funds? I think I’d hire out a massive house for the whole week and have my whole family, and my in-laws, and my closest friends, all together. I’d make sure there was lots of singing…possibly (definitely) a pub
5) Make up your own Welsh related question and answer it…
What stops you using your Welsh more often?
Other than history, still that mild nagging fear I get when code switching. Doesn’t last long mind.
