Episode 1: About SportED Talks with Virgil Stănescu (EN)

Sported talks is a podcast where I will have open discussions with people that inspired me, people that have some connection with sport. We’ll talk to athletes, to former athletes, coaches, business people or just passionate people that have strong ties with sports. A little about myself, I’ve been a professional basketball player for 20 years.

I led a basketball team for a while and I was also involved in the board of a sport federation. I believe in sport! I believe in practice… on the court and off the court. I also believe that no matter how much I practice shooting the basket, that will not make me a better manager. Therefore, when I said that I believe in practice, I meant the form of education that prepares you for what you desire to do.  

I am fortunate enough to have met a lot of interesting people.

I learned from each and  every one of them so I thought of creating open discussions with more interesting people and share them with you. I will challenge them, finding out details of their life, their work or what made them tick.  

Sported talks is mainly in English because my guests are also internationals. Also, I wish to bring around people that can address to a larger audience. So, Sported talks aims to speak with those that did something great in sport or through sport.

We will speak about education, health, business, social integration or any other aspect of how sport is influencing us and the society. We will speak about high performers, about professionals but also about grassroots. And all these in a friendly and direct manner.  

I believe in sport, and like Nelson Mandela said: “Sport has the power to change the world,” Mandela said. “It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers. It loughs in the face of all types of discrimination”. 

So, stay tuned to Sported Talks and lets find out what is behind what we see on tv, what is the true side of sport. All that sweat and sacrifice. Lets talk some Sportish!
