I sat in on Public Radio International’s “Fair Game” last night to talk about the hip-hop and R&B artists who were recently named in the massive steroids probe. The segment ran quite long, and unfortunately a lot of fun stuff was cut out, but I had a really good time interviewing Dr. Don Catlin, possibly the most reviled man among Olympic athletes. He’s the doctor responsible for starting up the drug screening laboratory for the Olympics, and he’s an expert on the positive and negative effects of steroids and human growth hormones. He was also very accommodating when I asked him how many bullets my muscles would be able to stop if I were taking steroids, and which had a greater risk of type 2 diabetes: prolonged use of HGH, or hanging out in 50 Cent’s ‘Candy Shop’, spending all day licking his lollypop.
You can here the whole Fair Game broadcast here, though my segment is right at the top of the show.
