We are officially at the one year to go mark before the Paris 2024 Olympics starts! That means it's time for a visit from our TKFLASTANI travel expert Ken Hanscom, who's got all of the details on what tickets might still be available, the hotel situation, flights, getting around Paris, and the hospitality houses.

In our Seoul 1988 history moment, Alison gets into the details of Seoul's mascot Hodori.

In our weekly journey to TKFLASTAN, we have news from:
