    Fighting Talk celebrates the end of 2016 as Colin Murray is joined by 4 panellists who all have one thing in common; they know little or nothing about the world of sport! Our sports fan novices will go head to head as they attempt to pick apart topics created especially for their non-sporting minds. In keeping with the usual arbitrary point scoring Colin will award points for informed comment, wit and passion but will deduct any for drivel and answers lacking in conviction. In the final round, the top two point scorers go head to head in 'defend the indefensible' where they must both defend a statement, however ludicrous or distasteful for twenty seconds. On this week's show- comedian Russell Kane, broadcaster Vanessa Feltz, journalist and television presenter Kate Thornton and comedian Stephen K Amos. Download the podcast - bbc.co.uk/5live.
