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!

MatTalkOnline's Jason Bryant returns to tell us about his adventures as the in-house English announcer for the wrestling competition at the Rio 2016 Olympics. It's a wild journey that goes through Uzbekistan, naturally.

Follow Jason on Twitter and his network on Facebook for all the latest in the world of wrestling.

We also have a slice of TOFU for you, as well as some insensitivity at a recent sailing test event. Wasn't us! We weren't there!

Brand new: Join our virtual water cooler at our Facebook Group. We love hearing your thoughts on various Olympic activities.

Don't forget! Our Book Club is reading Lopez Lomong's Running for my Life --and you can get a free download of it on Audible if you click on this link and sign up for a free trial (which also supports the show, which we greatly appreciate).

Our merch store is now open -- sport our fantastic logo with pride!

Our Patreon site is also up if you would like to become one of our patrons. Putting together the show each week takes a lot of work and effort, and our patrons help us cover the bills and keep the lights on. Patrons also get some pretty awesome thank you gifts -- check them them out!

As always, we love to hear from you - email us at or call 530-7-O-FEVER to leave us a VM!

Thanks for listening, and keep the flame alive!
