Episode 20: Speedskating through the Cross-Country

Download this episode!

Just about one week left before the PyeongChang Games begin!! This week we’re on the long track with speedskating sprinter Erin Jackson. Erin’s a world champion inline skater who recently transitioned to the ice and surprised everyone–even herself–by snagging a spot on the team in the 500m.

Not surprising is that a last-minute trip from the US to South Korea’s pretty expensive, so Erin’s been doing some fundraising to get her father and two cousins to the Games. Check out her website and Facebook page for more info. She’s also on Twitter and Instagram.

Then we head back outside to the snow to preview the cross-country skiing competition. Jason Albert, the host of the “Nordic Nation” podcast on FasterSkier.com, tells us more about the sport and what to look for out on the course.

All this, plus trivia–and what our podcasting schedule will be like during the Games!
