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 show 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 right here, and on your favorite podcast platform. Join us for all the fun and grandness that is the Olympic Games.

Citius, Altius, Feverrius!

Jill catches up with phenom U.S. Olympic Speedskater Erin Jackson about her experience at PyeongChang. Then Jill & Alison talk about the Canadian Olympic Committee's brand new Canadian Olympic Experience exhibit at its Montreal offices.

Erin's going to be competing at the Inline Speedskating World Championships in the Netherlands soon. Follow along here (in Dutch, but you might be able to parse out something). Or catch up with Erin on Twitter and Insta.

You can find out information about the Canadian Olympic Experience here. Put Montreal high up on your travel list -- it's a great city, and this is a really fun exhibit.
