LA 2028 will be here before you know it, so we wanted to learn a bit more about what's going on behind the scenes at the Organizing Committee. Izzy Cerullo, two-time Olympian in rugby sevens and current commercial and consumer insights associate at LA 2028, tells how she landed a gig on the other side of the Olympics and what insights she's looking at. Plus, Jill might have sighed more than Alison during this episode. What's up with that?
In our Albertville 1992 history moment, Alison takes a look at the amazing closing ceremonies. It's almost time to bid adieu to Albertville 1992! Perhaps the snow globe ladies are ready for us to go. Watch the ceremonies here.
In news from TKFLASTAN, we have updates from:
In doping news, the International Testing Agency has finished its reanalysis of London 2012 samples. It's a shame it had to be done, but the truth has hopefully won this battle.
Suprising (or not) Milan-Cortina 2026 news: Construction of a new bobsled track's been approved. Cue our sighing.
And the International Olympic Committe Executive Board met this week -- we've got updates on the selection for the host city of the 2030 Winter Games, the Russia situation, and the boxing situation. And, North Korea's coming off suspension!
Special shout out to our patron of the week: Listener Lorry!
