When will the podcast air?

We’ll produce daily episodes during the Games. We’ll record at the end of the competition day and drop them as soon as possible after recording. All episodes will include results for every event on that day’s schedule, along with our popular feature “What officiating or volunteer job do we want to do?” and other talk that will be special to the 2028 Games.
