We also have a sobering Tokyo COVID-19 update, what happened to some (some? Like 4000) Opening Ceremonies volunteer bento boxes, and we find out how many baseball players it takes to break one of Athletes Village cardboard beds.

Plus our popular segments:

And our new segment "What's Up with Mike and Maya?" of the Toyota "First Date" commerical.

We need your help! For the upcoming Winter Olympics and Paralympics in 2022, we'll have an on-the-ground presence. This will allow us to bring you an Olympics audio experience like no other. But getting to Beijing will be difficult, so we've got a Kickstarter campaign running to help get us there. Please check it out and support our efforts to bring you a better show. Thank you for your support!
