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 podcast 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. Join us for all the fun and grandness that is the Olympic Games.

Citius, Altius, Feverrius!

DURING THE GAMES we're having a fundraiser to help us offset the costs of producing this show. We'd like to raise $2,500 for:

  • hosting and domains
  • a better website 
  • more equipment and education to make better sounding podcasts
  • producing new episodes

We hope you'll consider donating to our efforts.

If you can't contribute financially, please share the show with your friends and family so that we can build our audience and be a more attractive investment for other sources of funding.

Thank you so much for listening -- we love being able to bring you these stories!

--Jill & Alison
