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 twizzled back onto the podcast, just in time for us to watch the free dance competition in Ice Dancing. While we watch the top couples compete, we also talk about the crazy final run of the 2-man Bobsled competition, which sadly our Team Olympic Fever member did not qualify for.

Another crazy match was Team Olympic Fever's Team Shuster beating Canada in Curling in the 11th end on the last rock.

We also double back and talk about Ski Halfpipe and Slopestyle and Team Olympic Fever member Devin Logan's massive knee hemotoma that kept her from doing her best on her final runs.

While Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir lay down their final dance, Jill fills in Alison on the men's 500m Speedskating race, which resulted in two amazing feats: No Dutch medals and a new Olympic Record.

Plus we have listener questions and VMs! If you'd like to drop us a line, give us a call at 530-763-3837 (530-7-O-FEVER). We love to hear from you!
