This week the show plays host to its first guest with a PhD in ‘sportsball’. Dr Ross Tucker is a world renowned sports scientist who is currently most active in international rugby. Ross has for many years been involved with and provided insightful commentary, as well as interesting didactic views, on athletics, cycling and other sporting codes. Roman and Jonathan probe Ross for his views on intersex athletes, doping in cycling, and the case for an open drug market in sports. The discussion doesn’t hold back from discussing the controversy around Caster Semenya, transgender athletes, the silencing of whistleblowers, and sport transformation in South Africa.
