Welcome to TKFLASTAN!

All guests on the show become members of Team Keep the Flame Alive (TKFLA), and let’s face it, with all those consonants, if we add “stan” onto the end of that, we’ve got our own country! But how do you pronounce TKFLASTAN? The dulcet tones of Jason Bryant explain on the audio track, but for visual learners, it’s pronounced TSHOOK-fla-stan (TKF).
