Keep the Flame Alive

Nov 24, 2022

It's Thanksgiving in the U.S., so we've got an all-Paralympic lightning round heading your way. First up is para shooter McKenna Geer. McKenna won bronze at Rio 2016 and also competed at Tokyo 2020 in air rifle.

Next we have para dressage rider Sydney Collier. Sydney finished seventh at Rio 2016 and was an alternate for the U.S.' Tokyo 2020 team.

Finally, we're joined by Rob Snoek, who competed for Canada in athletics, and has gone on to become a sports commentator.

NEW! We're looking for mascots and folks who want to close out the show!

  • Mascot: Your pet will sponsor the show! We'll talk about them on an episode, and they'll be the star of our newsletter and social channels for a week.
  • Close out the show: You will get to remind listeners to "keep the flame alive" at the end of one episode. This is your chance to add "podcast appearance" to your resume.

Limited slots are available - get yours today (or put it on your holiday wish list)! Get more information here, and for all the ways to support the show, go here.
