Podcast 253: This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Three – Channel Four Presents Basketball

by | Nov 27, 2020

In an ironic twist, today’s episode of This Is Our Everest (not sponsored by Just Juice) is both the first to feature any basketball at all and also the episode least likely to appeal to basketball fans. However, Edward has a perfectly reasonable defence and Ian has been watching the 1985 NBA finals instead so couldn’t care less either way. There’s good news for Canada, bad news for Telford and a chiding for Leicester’s lack of ambition.

How believable is Tom Cruise as an American Football player? And why has this question even arisen, in a programme ostensibly about basketball in the developing world? Your intrepid sports correspondents do their best to separate the wheat and chaff from the juice. If you’d like to watch the action, you can do so here.

Tomorrow’s episode of this this podcast features an episode of That’s Life from 1986. Enter at your own peril.
