First-time author Daemon Fairless explores and uncovers the male propensity toward violence in Mad Blood Stirring.

Utilizing his background in journalism (producer, CBC, As It Happens, Nature) and science (MSc – Neuroscience – Dalhousie University), Fairless writes compelling narrative non-fiction involving but not limited to MMA fighters, TFC’s Red Patch Boys, the 2011 Vancouver Stanley Cup riot and high school football.

Listen in as we discuss these elements, his findings, experience and much more on the latest episode of SportsLit.

I pray thee, good Mercutio, let’s retire.
The day is hot; the Capulets abroad;
And if we meet shall not ‘scape a brawl,
For now, these days, is the mad blood stirring.

William Shakespeare – Romeo and Juliet
