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! 

Feb 15, 2018

Jill and Alison catch up on their last day's viewing. Alison had a big team day, watching some men's ice hockey. Both Jill and Alison caught the NOR vs JAP men's curling match, which of course, meant the first look at the Norwegian team's famous page (check the FB page here). 

Jill watched Team Olympic Fever member Bryan Fletcher compete in Nordic Combined. She also pondered the existence of doubles luge. The Dutch won in speedskating again (which we think is a good thing), and Jill's found another officiating job she'd like. Alison has the answer to one of our burning questions from yesterday.

Little known fact: While we tape these shows, we have the TV on mute, so our commentary on the North Korean figure skating pair sneaks in, as does Alison's three favorite words: The Attacking Viking. Note: We didn't finish out the pairs competition together, so we'll talk about it more in tomorrow's episode.

We're also running a fundraising campaign for the duration of the Games. This money will go toward:

  • podcast and web hosting
  • a more robust website
  • equipment and education so we sound better
  • producing new episodes for the coming year

We have a donation button on our site, or click here. If you can't donate financially, we'd appreciate you sharing our podcast with others so we can continue to build our audience and be more attractive to other funding sources.
