New “Hastings Conversations” Podcast: What’s Actually Wrong with Sport Doping?

If all athletes had access to the same performance-enhancing drugs, wouldn’t that make competitions fair? If the purpose of sport is to maximize performance, shouldn’t we welcome technologies that do that? Mildred Z. Solomon, president of The Hastings Center, spoke with President Emeritus Thomas H. Murray, author of Good Sport: Why Our Games Matter — And How Doping Undermines Them, about performance enhancers, the tactics for curbing their use, and concerns about the legitimacy and fairness of anti-doping efforts. Listen to the podcast.

The Hastings Center has never shied away from the toughest ethical challenges faced by society.
