Description

Over the past couple of weeks, sporting events around the world have started to resume. This includes the start of Bundesliga, Germany's primary football competition. But the COVID-19 pandemic has required them to maintain social distancing norms and so these events have had to take place without live spectators. In this episode, Gaurav and Mihir discuss what the absence of a live audience means for sports - for both the players and the fans. They also talk about the latest regulations by sports federations, and the German man who, as a sign of protest, has printed thousands of cardboard cut-outs of people and placed them inside a Bundesliga venue.
