A footballer dies of dementia, younger than he should
A 14-year old-rugby player is told to play on through multiple blows. He never wakes up from the last one
A scientist reveals a pattern of brain disease in NFL players and is discredited
A survivor of domestic abuse can't remember details when standing up in court


This is the story of the degenerative brain disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). This is a story of power, of science and sport, and of the bodies that society deems worth sacrificing.

In 2019, Hana Walker-Brown created The Beautiful Brain, an award-winning podcast about West Bromwich Albion hero Jeff Astle and CTE. A Delicate Game explores the passion and fury of sport, truth and justice, violence against women, privilege, love, greed, hope and redemption. It's going to change the way you think about sport forever. For fans of She Said and Bad Blood.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for The Beautiful Brain

'I can't even tell you how many women and their caregivers found us and joined our support groups thanks to The Beautiful Brain and Hana's work on TBI in Domestic Violence because I have lost count! There is a true power in this work.'

-- Katherine Snedaker, Founder and CEO of Pink Concussions
I can't stop thinking about its core message - the breadth or argument and depth of detail are remarkable -- Gillian Reynolds * The Sunday Times *
'It's gripping and essential - if often overwhelmingly poignant and righteously enraging, as much a call-to-arms as a piece of investigative journalism.' * Esquire Magazine *
