    Salary Caps - Are they Doomed, or do they encourage Savvy Spending?

    This week we’re talking money money money. With exponentially rising transfer costs and player wages in football, we ask whether or not a salary cap system might be the way forward. We’ll visit Rugby Union, the NRL, the NFL and other places in between – questioning the efficacy of the caps and whether they really have a place in the modern sporting landscape.

    The Olympic Legacy: Has anything been achieved?

    The Olympic Legacy: Has anything been achieved?

    This week, special guest Evie Harrison talks us through the fascinating world of mega-event legacies and youth engagement in sport, thanks to her expertise in sport policy and management. 

    We have a look into whether the 2012 Olympics was truly a success in inspiring a generation into taking up sport, or whether the promises sold in the Olympic bid were false. 

    Further, we discuss some of the fantastic work being done at both a local and national level in an attempt to get people from all backgrounds engaging in sport, what's failing and what can be done to improve it.
