Olympic Fever


The feeling is uncontrollable and comes about every couple of years when athletes around the world convene on one city in their quest for glory. For some reason, you can't stop devouring the news and watching the events. For several weeks, you can't get enough. It's clear: You've got a case of Olympic Fever.

Now there's a podcast that can help. Welcome to Olympic Fever, the podcast for fans of the greatest sporting event in the world: The Olympic Games.

Each week, hosts Jill Jaracz and Alison Brown explore the stories of the Olympics through its sports, athletes, officials, organizers, host cities, fans and more.

New episodes come out every Thursday. Join us for all the fun and grandness that is the Olympic Games.

Citius, Altius, Feverrius!

Just about one week left before the PyeongChang Games begin!! This week we're on the long track with speedskating sprinter Erin Jackson. Erin's a world champion inline skater who recently transitioned to the ice and surprised everyone--even herself--by snagging a spot on the team in the 500m.

Not surprising is that a last-minute trip from the US to South Korea's pretty expensive, so Erin's been doing some fundraising to get her father and two cousins to the Games. Check out her website and Facebook page for more info. She's also on Twitter and Instagram.

Then we head back outside to the snow to preview the cross-country skiing competition. Jason Albert, the host of the "Nordic Nation" podcast on FasterSkier.com, tells us more about the sport and what to look for out on the course.

All this, plus trivia--and what our podcasting schedule will be like during the Games!
