It may not be that useful, but a recent (Nov.10) podcast from BBC Radio 4 on "Sport or The Arts" at the Free Thinking Festival seems to cover a lot of the issues you've highlighted. The idea of a sports competition being a narrative was interesting. Games as a form of narrative is not often discussed. Anyways, FYI: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/r3arts/all

Adam, thanks for the tip on this podcast!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
