Keep the Flame Alive

Dec 7, 2023

Book Club Claire is back for our final book of 2023, Speed Kings: The 1932 Winter Olympics and the Fastest Men in the World by Andy Bull. It covers the early days of the sport of bobsledding--and so much more. So much so that Claire's take on it surprised us!

We're winding down our Seoul 1988 history moments. Jill looks at the Closing Ceremony for the Paralympics, which includes a lot of sappy K-pop, a revolving dais and floating Gomdoori.

In TKFLASTAN News we have updates from:

The International Olympic Committee has invited two bids into targeted dialogue for Winter 2030 and Winter 2034. Did our faves make the cut?

Plus, news from Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024 (including a surfingnovela update!).

Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
