Meet the Team

Jill Jaracz – Host and Executive Producer

Jill Jaracz got the idea to start a continually running Olympics podcast in 2017 because other Olympics-focused podcasts would only air around the time of a Games. She wanted to talk Olympics more often, so got Alison on board and started her own show. Jill’s also a freelance writer – check out her website and LinkedIn profile for more.

Alison Brown – Co-Host and Producer

Alison Brown fell in love with the Olympics watching Dorothy Hamil and Nadia Comenici.
