In the late 1800’s, out of a perceived need for morality through sport ; and an unspoken desire to keep  social classes in their respective places – a divide between amateurism and professionalism was created and called the Olympics. 

In this episode of the Boardroom Podcast Scott Bass chats with Mark Johnson author of Spitting In The Soup: Inside the Dirty Game of Doping in Sports.

With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics one year away, and surfing being included for the first time, Johnson offers perspective on the history of doping in sports, how it’s evolved and the relatively new industry and bureaucracy of anti-doping with regard to the Olympic Games.
