2020's been a doozy for the Olympic and Paralympic world, so we put together a contributor roundtable with Book Club Claire and Superfan Sarah to talk about the biggest stories from this non-Olympic year.
We're on a boat! The last Lightning Round episode of the year features Olympic paddlers we've interviewed in 2020: Andras Törő, Leslie Klein and Luuka Jones.
What's the historical Olympics that Keep the Flame Alive podcast will cover next year? Olympipod's Ruth and Chris join us for the big announcement and some background on these Games.
This week we've got two conversations covering different elements of gender and sport. First up is Olympian Jackie Silva, ambassador for the #LetHerRun movement. Then we've got Paralympian Ness Murby to talk about transgender and the gender spectrum in sports. Plus, the International Olympic Committee has approved the event program for Paris 2024 -- we've got all the b-details for you!
The Velvet Voice of John Register returns, and this time we're talking about his Paralympic experiences. John tells us how he was on track to make the Olympic team until a horrific accident closed that door and opened a window into the world of the Paralympics. John talks about learning how the other half lives when experiencing the Atlanta 1996 Games, and how good hosts can create an exceptional Games, like Sydney did in 2000. Plus, an Aretha Franklin encounter!
