Posted on 15 December 2015 by Leo

One of the highlights of this term has been without a doubt playing University Rugby with Cardiff Medics RFC. After a few years out from the game I was a bit reluctant about putting the boots on and trying it again but its been nothing short of a blast. Playing again has been outstanding but

Xpress radio

With clinic week, sleep and the first student loan instalment all but distant memories, inspiration has failed to strike this month, so I have had to resort to shamelessly plugging the radio show that I am now co-presenting. After meeting with my co-host Samantha to discuss ideas, I made my radio debut last Tuesday on

Video Blog – Toby talks Student Media

Posted on 27 February 2015 by Toby

If you’re a Cardiff University student, it’s likely that you’ll have seen copies of Gair Rhydd and Quench magazine around campus. I’d argue that you’re just as likely to have listened to Xpress Radio while you’ve been rushing through the Union to get your lectures on time. The point I’m making is that student media
