Good episode? Give it some love!
  • Alexi Pappas talks with reporter Kit Fox talks about her Olympic buildup has been anything but ordinary. Alexi also talks about why, as a Greek American, it’s so important to her to represent Greece in the Summer Games. (3:15)
  • Show host and Editor-in-Chief David Willey talks with journalist David Epstein about doping—how it’s affected the Olympics, how we got to this point, and what keeps him watching, still, despite the controversies. (28:50)
  • In the Kick, we discuss what Rule 40 is and why Olympians think it doesn’t work; how a Saudi Arabian runner is making sports more visible for females in the country; and yet another (very impressive) beer mile world record.
