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!

Happy Anniversary to us! That's right--one year ago this week, we launched our very first episode (you want to go back and listen, right?.....Maybe not. We didn't really get into a groove until episode 3 or 4)!

It's been a year of amazing adventures and fascinating Olympic stories, and this week's guest is no exception. We continue what seems to be a Montreal theme this year and sit down with swimming legend John Naber. John was the golden boy of the 1976 Montreal Olympics, winning four gold medals and one silver medal, and setting multiple world records that held up for years.

John talks about swimming, his Montreal experience, his career as a broadcaster and his work with Olympians for Olympians Relief Fund. And we talk about the puzzle that is this week's show pic and the fact that Jill has not yet been able to get that quarter out. You better believe you'll hear about it when she does.

Follow John on Twitter and Facebook!

We also have some great news about the USOC's decision to create equity between Olympians and Paralympians in terms of medalist monetary awards. Check out Oksana Masters' reaction.

Plus, trying to make sense of WADA's decision to readmit RUSADA, a big slice of TOFU, and some Olympic Fever anniversary fun!
