Life, Death and Sport is the podcast that reveals sport’s rarely told stories of heartbreak, healing and hope, shining a light on the real and raw issues that are so often kept in the dark. Former professional footballer Robbie Cornthwaite interviews athletes and sporting professionals who have dealt with death, grief, depression and family challenges, while also trying to navigate the unique, high pressure environment of elite sport. Robbie himself faced his own family tragedy while at the height of his sporting career, losing his daughter who was born prematurely at 22 weeks. While these stories may tackle taboo topics, they’re issues faced by many people every day.
