Episode 31: Rome 1960’s Legacy

Download this episode!

Jill’s just back from Rome, Italy, and naturally did a little Olympic tourism while she was there, so she and Alison talk about the game-changing Olympics of Rome 1960 and Jill talks about some venues that still remain. Plus, the Team USA awards and trivia.

Jill’s got a ton of pictures of the Olympic venues she saw–she’ll post them up ASAP, but for now, here’s a shot of the basketball venue (still in use, though the outside doesn’t look it) and the Mussolini obelisk in front of the main Olympic complex.
