Download this episode!
If you’re an Olympics buff, you likely have some souvenirs lying around, but Teri Hedgpeth gets to work with one amazing Olympic collection. Teri’s the first Archivist for the U.S. Olympic Committee, and she talks with us about what she walked into when she started the job (it has to do with basement storage), some of the unique items in the collection (including a Marshall Islands $75 coin) and how she gets donations.
If you’re on LinkedIn, follow Teri – she regularly posts pictures of interesting artifacts from the collection.
Tomorrow’s the beginning of the month, which means our Patreon patrons get their bonus material–check us out and join the club! Your donation goes a long way into keeping the show going, especially as we prepare for Tokyo 2020.
