Big news from the International Olympic Committee this week: The IOC has banned Russia from competing at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games--and a host of other sanctions--as a result of systemic doping. Join us through the cycle of grief as we work through this issue and its ramifications for this Olympic Games and beyond. Plus, Alison brings some happy Olympic trivia to the table.
