S1E1: Get into the new Hard Tackle Podcast channel from The Straits Times

  • 19 Apr 2024

Hear the tough questions posed to our sports stars or authorities in our studio, and how they react.

Synopsis: The Straits Times tackles the talking points in sport every second Wednesday of the month. 

The Straits Times' sports podcast has been around for the past few years, in different formats - from Game Of Two Halves, to Sports Talk, and now...the Hard Tackle.

We've found that this format has worked the best for us, and the harder the tackle, the more our listeners come back for more.

Host Deepanraj Ganesan's boyhood Manchester United hero Roy Keane would be so proud to hear this.

He will engage guests from the local or foreign sports community as ST looks at the biggest talking points in sport.
