This weekend marks the 40th anniversary of the Moscow 1980 Olympics, which may be better known for the 66-country boycott of them. Our TKFLASTANI archivist Teri Hedgpeth joins us to talk about the boycott and a new exhibit she put together for the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee that honors the US athletes who were affected by it.
The Lightning Round is back! We pose the same questions to our guests; you'll be fascinated by their answers. This time we're joined by the dulcet tones of wrestling announcer Jason Bryant, sustainability expert Matthew Campelli (or, as we prefer to call him, MCamp) and U.S. Olympic Committee archivist Teri Hedgpeth.
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 and how she gets donations.
