I have written for the Irish Times, Jacobin, In These Times, Boston Review, Dissent, Salon, Common Reader, and Dublin Review of Books.

My recent pieces have reflected on Noam Chomsky, the Kerner Report, Tom Hayden, the “ghetto” as a concept, the film Selmaand the Obamas’ Irish roots.

I am often interviewed on the radio and television in Ireland and elsewhere and have appeared on RTE (radio and t.v.), Newstalk, BBC, WBAI (New York), and KPFA (Berkeley).

I am a regular guest on RTE’s cultural program “Arena” where I have discussed topics such as Little Richard and John Wayne, Bob Dylan, celebrity politicians, and the history of the New York Review of Books.
