Conor McGregor took part in (for better or for worse – and it definitely was worse) the most talked-about global sporting event of the year.

At our live show in Liberty Hall we spoke to Irish Times columnist and philosopher Laura Kennedy, and journalist Ewan MacKenna, about McGregor’s rise and fall, whether he or any sportsperson should be a role model, and Kant’s categorical imperative.

We give you a brief taste of the best audio stings of the year, we give our beloved World Service listeners a chance to win a Second Captains Christmas Hamper, and Eoin reveals his extensive background in philosophy.
