Episode 810: US Murph, Jimmy Breslin, Andy Lee’s Return
Jimmy Breslin died last weekend – a columnist for over 50 years on sport, politics, and American life, he lived one of the great lives of US journalism. We speak to Brian Murphy about Breslin’s career, about the great American columnists, and the man who dug JFK’s grave.
The NYT obit of Jimmy Breslin, by @DanBarryNYT, is one of the best obits ever written. A tribute worthy of a legend. https://t.co/NqKk482eZp

We also talk about Tiger Woods’ new book, why race is still an issue in golf, and what Tiger could have done differently to change that.

Andy Lee returned to the ring in Madison Square Garden on Saturday night, easily accounting for his opponent KeAndre Leatherwood in a unanimous points decision. We talk to our favourite boxer about the plan to get him back on top.
