The Olympic Flame is afire, and the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Torch Relay has begun, meaning our Olympic Fever is really starting to take hold. We talk about this week's torch lighting ceremony, and Alison gets into the history of the Torch Relay, including fennel's weird place in it (yeah, you read that right--fennel). Plus, Salt Lake City 2002 torchbearer Craig Perlow of Olympian Artifacts tells us about his experience in the relay.
Ever since the beginning of the modern Olympics, pins have been around--and every Games, they are a hot commodity to buy, sell and trade. This week, we crash the Olympin Pin Collectors Convention at Lake Placid, New York and meet some of the characters behind this incredibly popular hobby.
Today we’re talking with Josh Williamson, one of the bobsled winners of the NBCSN show “Scouting Camp: The Next Olympic Hopeful.” Josh tells us what the competition was like and what his current plan is for his career as a bobsledder.
We're podcasting from Lake Placid, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games!!! Jill and Alison talk about their adventures (maybe geek out a little) and discuss Lake Placid as an Olympic Host City. Also, trivia, and we say good-bye to a pairs figure skating legend.
