Alasdair Hooper and Will Moulton bring you episode 12 of SportSpiel, a podcast full of sporting discussion and feature interviews.
In our first segment we discuss:
- Is England’s Ashes squad selection one of the weakest we’ve seen (2:15)?
- Should Ben Stokes be stripped of the England vice-captaincy and will he be on the Ashes tour (10:00)?
- Is British Bobsleigh’s latest announcement just a glimmer of good news in a swirl of controversy (12:57)?
Our feature interview segment in this episode is with British rifle shooter Jen McIntosh – Scotland’s most decorated female athlete in Commonwealth history (18:04).
She tells us what it’s like competing against her sister, living up to her mother’s own medal success as well as looking ahead to the fast-approaching Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018.
