Keep the Flame Alive is the best fan-based podcast devoted to bringing you the stories of the greatest sporting event in the world, the Olympic Games. Co-hosts Jill Jaracz and Alison Brown interview athletes, gamesmakers and fans; talk about the sports; visit the host cities and share these stories on their weekly show to help celebrate the Games, build the community of Olympism and find ways to better enjoy and watch these sports.

This type of show takes a lot of time and effort -- essentially, we're publishing a 30-60 minute radio show once a week. Behind the scenes we have to:

  • research topics and people
  • find and book guests
  • conduct interviews
  • record the show
  • edit the audio
  • publish and market each show

Our show also has real financial costs, including:

  • hosting/domains/website
  • equipment
  • occasional continuing education
  • occasional travel

Combining the time and financial costs means a significant investment--there's a reason that weekly radio shows have paid staff. While we love producing the show, we need your help: As we get closer to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, we'd like to do even more to -- create better shows and fun experiences for our fan community so we can cheer on the Games together.

With your patronage, we'll be able to prepare you for Tokyo 2020 and beyond--and hopefully do even more fun things in the process!

Thank you for your support and for keeping our flame alive!
