(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A footballer dies of dementia, younger than he should
A 14 year old rugby player is hit in the head and told to play on, he dies on the pitch
A scientist reveals endemic brain disease in NFL players and is discredited
A survivor of domestic abuse can't remember details when standing up in court


This is the story of the degenerative brain disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). This is a story of power, of science and sport, and of the bodies that society deems worth sacrificing.

In 2019, Hana Walker-Brown created The Beautiful Brain, an award-winning podcast about West Bromwich Albion hero Jeff Astle and CTE. Delicate States continues that story, exploring a hidden disease that the powerful don't want you to know about. It uncovers miscarriages of justice, violence against women, racial discrimination, institutional corruption, privilege, greed, hope and redemption. For fans of She Said and Bad Blood.
