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!

The Olympic Flame is afire, and the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Torch Relay has begun, meaning our Olympic Fever is really starting to take hold. We talk about this week's torch lighting ceremony, and Alison gets into the history of the Torch Relay, including fennel's weird place in it (yeah, you read that right--fennel). We also talk to former torchbearer for the Salt Lake City torch relay Craig Perlow of Olympian Artifacts about his experience in the event. See more of his pictures at his website.
