We cover Sport and Revolution with Women's NBA player, Kelsey Bone; writer and journalist, Musa Okwonga; and they go for a run with Goodgym founder, Ivo Gormley. They speak exclusively to Four Tet. Hailed as one of the 21st-century's finest electronic musicians, he speaks to Stance in his first and only interview about his album, New Energy. They also discuss the sea with Kwame Kwei-Armah OBE and Young Vic Theatre's new Artistic Director and Bafta-nominated actor, Nikki Amuka-Bird, who tell us about their adaptation of Ibsen classic, The Lady From The Sea, for the stage in London. Lastly, they go surfing and discuss the relationship between race and the sea with Brown Girl Surf in California.
