Guest/s: Steve Martin
Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth.The attachments that were once so strong seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.
Episode 6 – Part 2: Grant and Roger discuss with Steve his love of rugby and golf, from the importance of being a young flyhalf in Ulster during the Troubles, thru what works and doesn’t work today, to building esprit de corps at the Ryder Cup. Dangers for rights holders with the fragmentation of broadcast platforms and the prospects for OTT? Ending discussing women’s sport and Beckham, as sport moves more into celebrity, fashion and lifestyle.
