Episode 20: The Blood Sport

To discuss the parallels between professional sports and politics, the Pontificator and Professor are joined by Mr. Dan “One-Time-Tex”, calling in from the nation’s capitol, Washington DC. Working within the rapidly emerging field of space law, #One-Time brings his knowledge and passion for politics, both domestic and international, to discuss a variety of topics with the Grandstand - can we make sense of events like Brexit by looking at the similarities and differences between the sporting and political arenas? How might globalism impact the nation state and international futbol? And as we witness a populist rise on the political landscape, #One-Time helps us ponder what sporting teams do the Trump, Clinton and Obama brands best embody? That, and much more, as we diplomatically litigate and dialogue over two of our most vital institutions and spectating spectacles!
