A footballer dies of dementia, younger than he should

A 14-year old-rugby player is told to play on through multiple blows. He never wakes up from the last one

A scientist reveals a pattern of brain disease in NFL players and is discredited

A survivor of domestic abuse can't remember details when standing up in court

This is the story of the degenerative brain disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). This is a story of power, of science and sport, and of the bodies that society deems worth sacrificing.

In 2019, Hana Walker-Brown created The Beautiful Brain, an award-winning podcast about West Bromwich Albion hero Jeff Astle and CTE. A Delicate Game explores the passion and fury of sport, truth and justice, violence against women, privilege, love, greed, hope and redemption. It's going to change the way you think about sport forever. For fans of She Said and Bad Blood.
