Headlympics: Show 1

May 2012

What happens when you mix Headliners unique brand of journalism with the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics? HEADLYMPICS!

Headlympics is a podcast created by the young people we have been nurturing and training to become journalist, reporters, presenters and producers.

This is the first of four shows diving into the Olympics like Tom Daley. You do not have to be a sports fan to find something interesting in these shows, we are investigating everything from the showbiz opening, the impact the Games will have on our already multicultural make-up, will the vibrations of last summers riots have any affect on ticket sales, what will the legacy actually look like and we speak to 9 times Paralympics gold medalist Chris Holmes about losing his sight at 14 and how to swim in a straight line when you’re blind.
