Keep the Flame Alive

Feb 19, 2022

It's Day 15 of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, and as the Games winds down, news about the Kamila Valieva situation keeps brewing, thanks to TBach's appearance at the IOC daily press briefing. That didn't tamp down the action on the field of play though, as more medals are on the line for TKFLASTAN today.

  • Biathlon - Women's and men's mass start
  • Bobsleigh - Two-Woman heats
  • Curling - Men's bronze medal match; women's semifinals
  • Figure Skating - Pairs short program
  • Freestyle Skiing - Women's ski halfpipe; men's ski cross
  • Ice Hockey - Men's semifinals
  • Speed Skating - Long Track - Men's 1000m

RED ENVELOPE CAMPAIGN: 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!
