Keep the Flame Alive is the podcast for fans of the Olympics and Paralympics. Each week co-hosts Jill Jaracz and Alison Brown keep you up-to-date on the worlds of the Olympics and Paralympics through interviews with athletes, Gamesmakers, historians and more. We're the cure to your case of Olympic Fever. Give us a call: 208-FLAME-IT.
 
Olympic athletes are different than the rest of us. Sure, they're fitter and faster. But, they also think differently. They see obstacles differently. And, understanding how they pursued Olympic greatness can change how you live your life. "Call Me Fitz" will inspire the inner Olympian in all of us with conversations about how athletes got to the podium and more interestingly, what happened when they stepped off of it.
