show episodes
 
The Black Eye is the podcast that peels away the public relations veneer of sport and more, to reveal some ugly truths. Hosted by award winning journalist and author, Ewan MacKenna, each episode will deal with a subject from a perspective seldom seen on the front and back pages. Our mantra of ‘truthful, not neutral’ means this might not be for diehard fans who want yet more celebration of their favourite but highly flawed celebrity. But that’s okay with us.
