The Times podcast: Masters of Disasters: Broken records!
Our latest piece of podcasting is with Jonathan, our fearless correspondent who runs this fine blog, The Truth About Sports
We look back on what he has learned during the course of his career and share it with you in a very, very special edition of “The Times”.
“I didn’t expect I would be so passionate about sports,” Jonathan says of himself in a recent email.

Indeed, as we chat with many of our guests, we’re struck by how passionate they are about the sport they love. As we learn about more stories, it strikes us as almost a revelation that not only is this a beautiful game, it actually has been a gift from the Great Creator. It should be so important to all of us as humans, but it isn’t only the case in golf.
On the episode, our guests talk about their faith and how it shapes their values, which is why so many of our guests are athletes. They talk about how they have developed their values so that everything and everyone that they do is in support of the
