Keep the Flame Alive

Dec 15, 2022

Film Buff Fran is back with one of her all-time favorite movies, "The Cutting Edge" starring Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney. Can the icy figure skater and the rough-and-tumble former hockey player get past their differences in order to become an Olympic-caliber pairs team?

Also on this episode, we have our last Albertville 1992 history moment, in which Jill looks at CBS' highlights videotape.

In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we have news from:

  • Short track speed skater Ryan Shane
  • Nordic combined racer Annika Malacinski
  • Speed skater Erin Jackson
  • Swimmer John Naber
  • Curler John Shuster

Plus, the International Olympic Committee is looking into a pathway for Russian and Belarussian ahtletes to compete at Paris 2024. Should they be allowed to do so?

Special shout out to our patron of the week, Stanley Yang!
