    Interesting - putting this on the list. It's a fascinating (if slightly morbid) topic.

    I wonder if they'll cover the Robert Enke story?

    I think I seen an episode on him on the list from last year.

    I gave some of these a listen and they were grand at the start. But by the end I was starting to feel a bit grubby. Maybe I'm biased because it's an Irish story but I disliked the Anthony Foley one. The way they described his wife finding out the news and then telling their kids felt like I was eavesdropping on a private conversation. That episode was needless and I wonder did they choose it because they needed a European death?

    On the other hand, the Mike Webster one, which led into the American football CTE issue, was a story that is worth telling.
