This show does cost money to produce, and while our listeners have been extremely generous in supporting us through the Kickstarter campaign that got us to Beijing and also through Patreon patronage, we’re coming up on 2 ½ years until another Olympics, so to celebrate the Lunar New Year, we’re asking for donations of at least $8 -- in China the number 8 is a lucky number symbolizing good fortune --  to help us get through to Paris 2024. Go to to donate.

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