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!

Alison's traveling today, so Team USA's #1 fan Sarah Patton is here to twizzle in her shoes. We hear how her Opening Ceremonies party went (perhaps it was golden), and then Jill and Sarah talk about:

  • The opening day of Bobsled
  • Our favorite mustachioed Ski Jumper
  • Team Olympic Fever member John Shuster's progress in the Curling tournament
  • Doping in Curling
  • Alpine Skiing with Ted Ligity (say it with diggity)
  • The first day of Big Air
  • One of the most exciting Biathlon races yet (which is hard to believe, given how great this competition has been)
  • The Olympic debut of Team Olympic Fever member Erin Jackson in Speedskating
  • Ice Dancing's opening night
