Citius, Altius, Feverrius!

After weeks of talking about India's greatest Winter Olympian, we have him ON THE SHOW! The one, the only SHIVA KESHAVAN joins us to talk about the sport of luge. We have a fascinating conversation with him that will help you better understand what you're watching when you tune in to a luge competition--and it starts with talking about one of his Sochi runs where he fell off the sled and managed to flip himself back on it.

We also talk about what it's like to be an Olympian with very little financial support, his five other Olympics and his insight as to what the Russian athletes will be facing in PyeongChang, as he had to walk into Sochi 2014 under the Olympic flag.

It's a great conversation--one you won't want to miss! Follow Shiva on Twitter and Facebook.

We also discuss doubles luge and how the team relay works (spoiler: it's gonna be cool), and as always, trivia!
