Let's Talk About...

On May 13th, a month and ten days shy of his 29th birth­day, Derek the bogey­man” Boogaard was found dead by his broth­er. After exten­sive test­ing of the for­mer NHL enforcer’s brain tis­sue, doc­tors deter­mined Boog­a­rd was suf­fer­ing from advanced stage CTE, a degen­er­a­tive brain dis­or­der caused by repeat­ed blows to the head. Months lat­er, two more enforcers were dead under the same strange cir­cum­stances, after them came Steve Mon­ta­dor and count­less oth­ers before and since. On this episode of Let’s Talk About, Jason will dive into the world of CTE in sports, and try to explain this dis­ease and all it can do to destroy lives while fans sit and cheer.
