Keep the Flame Alive

Jul 14, 2023

With just about one year to go until Paris 2024, we've got to start getting our daily show muscles into shape! We're training with you this week as we get deep into our yearlong look at the Seoul 1988 Olympics and Paralympics by watching the Olympics Opening Ceremonies

For screencaps of some of the gems from the Parade of Nations, as well as a transcript, please visit

In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we have news from:

We've got news on the current status of bid-rigging scandals related to Tokyo 2020.

In Paris 2024 news, the cycling road race and time trial routes are out. Team Italy's kit has been revealed (not a bad deal when your kit is made by Armani). Hong Kong won't be holding a 3x3 Olympic qualifier. And you could stay at Pierre de Coubertin's home--it's being Airbnb'd for One Year to Go!

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

Thank you to our ongoing contributors and patrons! This show thrives because of our listeners. Want to give back? Learn more here.
