+pat kane and I kick through what the Olympics have meant to us.. Blake and Jerusalem, the liberation of the corinthian ethic at a time when professional sport is literally choking on money and finance.

We also talk about #KatieTaylor  and #MoFarrah  raw belief and the triumph of character over celebrity, the rise of women's sport, and the importance of the lingering social benefits of the Paralympics...

And the raising of the quotidian to the extraordinary (oh, and an interruption from my three year old, elegantly handled by a great Scottish musician and thinker)...
