She then asked me a series of questions: How long have I had the beard? How I would describe it. Have I ever considered shaving it off? She did compliment me on the fact that she felt the one I have actually suits me, which was flattering, and then went on to ask who I would consider to be a good beardy role-model. She also asked whether my wife or partner (neither of whom actually exists) approved of the beard I have.
And that was more or less it. You will notice, dear readership, that I have not included any of my answers here. You will need to comment for those.
I just can't help wondering how well beards actually work on radio.
