Keep the Flame Alive

Jan 26, 2023

This week we've got part two of our conversation with Dick Pound, the longest-serving member of the International Olympic Committee. Dick worked on the formation of the World Anti-Doping Agency, so we start today's conversation with one of our favorite topics, doping. Then we get into Dick's work with broadcast rights negotiation, as well as the Winter 2030 bid and legacy.

In our Seoul history moment, Alison takes a look at the official song "Hand in Hand." Watch the song being performed at the Opening Ceremonies here:

TKFLASTAN is busy this week! We have updates from past guests:

In our news from upcoming Games, both Paris 2024 and Milan-Cortina 2026 are feeling budgetary pressures. Also, you have just a few days to register for the first Paris 2024 ticket lottery (though if you don't make this one, there will be other opportunities to get tickets)!
