Description

In this episode, the hosts Donovan Bailey & Simon Jain, get into the very real topic of idolatry as it pertains to public perception. Have we as a culture, made the dream of sports stardom seem too attainable, too desireable and altogether too unrealistic? Have we made sports 'icons' so larger than life, that a normal life, simply won't suffice? The hosts weigh in on what this could mean for the average athlete, and how much of it is social media driven, or if in fact it was always this way.
