Michael Woodley of Menie's research has been covered several times in various print and electronic media over the years. One of my papers looking into increasing latency of simple reaction times since Victorian times was covered extensively (if somewhat sensationally) in a number of prominent media outlets, including The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Smithsonian Magazine, and The Huffington Post .
More recent research of mine has been covered in The Times , Le Monde, and again by the The Times. Below is a list of more substantive media (organised into three categories, print, ‘TV’ (which includes streams), radio, and podcasts).
Print Media Research
2012: I was interviewed on my research into the impacts on cognitive development of infectious diseases in EMBO Reports.
2012: An article on a paper on the topic of the long-necked seal hypothesis in cryptozoology was covered in New Scientist. Please note, that despite the sensationalistic title of the piece, neither my co-authors (nor I) believe in the Loch Ness Monster.
2014: I was interviewed by the Canadian periodical Maisonneuve on my research into cryptozoology, and my (gloomy) thoughts about the prospects for the field going forwards.
2017: I was interviewed by the New Scientist on the topic of the secular decline in working memory capacity.
Digital TV Research
2013: I was interviewed on Al Jazeera’s The Stream on the topic of a paper that I co-wrote with Ed Bell on the cross-national relationship between the prevalence of consanguineous marriages and degree of democratization. Please note that I did absolutely horribly in this interview despite then very best efforts of the wonderful person who interviewed me. Consider this an abject lesson on how not to conduct yourself during an interview.
2013: My research on reaction time slowing was discussed on the Fox News Red Eye show . The panel included John R. Bolton, who described the paper as "Eurotrash". Surely there can be no higher praise?
2018: I was interviewed on the topic of the anti-Flynn effect and its possible causes by the Italian current affairs show Presa Diretta.
Interview on Radio
2016: I was interviewed (along with James Flynn) on the Flynn effect for the BBC’s Why Factor
