BTR Sports with Sam, Kory and Kristy is a sports show focusing on more than just the results and clichés. Each week we take an in-depth look at a topic from the world of sport from a broader, cultural angle. This week for Hero week we make a special visit to Kristy’s bar and discuss the importance of the bar in sports culture as a meeting place and ask if we should ever refer to athletes as heroes.
