The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games began amidst a worldwide conversation about doping and performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). And only a few days after the opening ceremonies, a speedskater was banned for testing positive for PEDs.

In this episode, we explore what we should do about the presence of PEDs in sports. We are joined by Dr. Anthony Hackney, author of Doping, Performance-Enhancing Drugs, and Hormones in Sport.
