Devastating I mean they'll have to cut Olympic sports, but I'm telling you. There are some big time programs across the country Maryland. Rutgers Ucla. Others who have been collecting money from their universities in terms of direct support? And student fees. And those universities, even football is played. It's going to be difficult for them to continue to subsidize. The Athletics Department because these universities and colleges are emerging millions of dollars throughout the summer, and then the fall so. It's GONNA put a financial strain on a lot of people I've said it many times. I still think one day we're headed to. A separate division. The Alabama's Georgia's the Ohio States Michigan's. US's and whatnot, and then division underneath that because I think there are a lot of schools in the FBI that don't need to be competing at that level because it's not financially responsible.

Lets talk about OLYMPUS!
"Put on his makeup, but before we start I want to talk a little bit about why do this livestream real quick in the main reason. Is this big announcement that now? That Elizabeth's put out earlier this week? That triggered a lot of media outlets. Arguably mine included inside of our community to kind of talk about it as Olympic is fall in the sky's falling. It's all over for Olympus etc I. Know Rob, or I knew rob was affiliated with the company, so I sent him a quick message like rob you okay, man, what's going on and he was like dude. There's a lot of disinformation. Let me! Set you straight. ABC and I was like okay well. Would you be willing to come on and say that on the show so hopefully use the platform of whip to demystify this stuff and lucky enough he said yes, and here we are so rob night man, welcome to the show man how you doing. Hey, I'm good man. Thanks, traveling I I appreciate the opportunity to actually. Have a real conversation about all this crazy stuff. You mean versus salacious headlines. I've read a lot of expert opinions on facebook over the last few days in. It's A. Very few experts actually chiming in anything's. The you say expert opinions, you say expert opinions with with quote marks right indeed. UNINFORMED, experts agree that ABC. So. Let's listen before we dive into the let's talk a little bit about just set. The stage of who robbed night is and what your affiliation with Olympus gives us that. Give us the back story. Yeah, well I'm I'm basically photography teacher I'm from predominantly do destination photo workshops, but obviously with all this stuff. I'm not doing that so I teach photography I go to events and give presentations I go to camera stores. All all sorts of anyway I can interact with photographers and and teach photography socially nature, photography, travel, photography, and about going on a year ago, Olympus, approached me and asked me to be a part of their new. Team they have the they've had the visionaries for a while and. There's the educator team now and then the what is it explores which is their social media folks? And I'm basically a brand ambassador. That's that's what we're called. You know I'm a part of the educating which is is not a job as much as it's a relationship, you know I use their equipment to do what I do, and they understand the value of that. People come on workshop with me and they see me shooting with you know my gear and they want to go buy it and that's that's kind of you know my job, and then they send me out to do things and and you know what would have been a full spring of birding events and nature photography events. You know on behalf of Olympus was be. Sitting at my house, my kids trying to figure out what he'll do, but but that's. That's the nature of what I do I'm I'm a brand ambassador as far as Olympic is concerned. I love. I love that. Okay, so let let's let's dive in and talk a little bit about where things are today right so. On the heels of that I know you and I sort of interacting, you know we were ambassadors of different. We I still am, but you were ambassador on Panasonic side, and then made the jump over to Olympics. That's a whole `nother show. We're going to save that for a different show about the impetus and driving factors behind that decision. Which is deep I? Really I don't want to do that an injustice, but let's let's let's focus on this side so olympus right so. Looking looking at the company of Olympics, a story brand right so Olympics. Olympics I think like I think Panasonic. Especially Panasonic because microphone thirds I think Sony Canon to when I saw that news, the knee jerk reaction was Oh crap. Okay, we're losing one of these. These pillars in the industry story brand like a Kodak is folding and okay. So what's going to happen and people that are shooting at what's going to happen to their cameras? There's suddenly going to stop working. Not The case, but you know you those things go your mind. The doom and gloom hits I. Think is maybe human nature, doom and gloom first, and then the reality of what it is. It's so set that stage for. What's the reality of this announcement? Is Olympics like just? Sin And everybody in the Camera Division home and know people that have the cameras you gotta go. Buy Spare parts at garage sales now or is it? Well the first thing I want to say is that I do have a relationship with Olympic, but I'm not I'm not speaking for you. Know Olympus. Corporate when I'm talking about this and the things that I'm going on to answer that question are the things that. Mostly, what everyone else can read online? There's there's the the letter of intent that has posted on Olympus website. I have pieces of that to sort of reference and then we did as an ambassador. I do have sort of Cuban a sheet that that Olympus sent me, so that's as much insider information as as you can get. But basically they they have announced that they are going to talk to company about buying the imaging division from Olympus and Olympics makes they have an imaging division. They have medical. You know medical devices, and you know they don't only make cameras. So what they're talking about is taking the camera business and selling it to this company and Japan Ajay. Ip and

Producer Shima Oliaee on Making Dolly Partons America
"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury today? I speak with Shima Oli. Who together with Radio Lab Founder Jad Abu Murad produced the award winning show Dolly Parton America. And when I say award-winning, it's kind of personal for me. You see Dolly Parton. America beat out the show. You're listening to right now for the title of Discover Pods Best New podcast of two thousand nineteen. I guess I should also mention that there show just won a peabody award, and sadly inside podcasting wasn't in the running for that one. Regardless the fact that podcast I produced was in the running with a show about Dolly. Parton will always put a smile on my face when I was nine I idolized. Does I spent hours staring at her glossy album covers imagining what it would be like to be glamorous singer. And while that dream come true, it was still an incredible thrill for me to talk to Shema about this show. In case you haven't listened to the series yet. I want to play you a clip. This is from an episode called dixie disappearance in which Jad and she might take a look at some of the contradictions behind Dolly's iconic, persona. The episode centers around a wildly popular tourist event called Don. DIXIE STAMPEDE! It's a Rodeo style dinner theater, in which the civil war is acted out as quote, friendly competition. The word slavery isn't mentioned at any point during the show. In this club Shema and One through the experience of attending the event. Okay so basically! Warn you walk into the, arena. It's huge I wouldn't say it's a football field I would say it's like an Olympic size pool like with arena seats all around. It's like going to the Rodeo. Basically. It's like going to the Rodeo. It's like a ton of der- in the center of this massive oval. How many seats wasn't again? It was one thousand. Dolly Parton. And the whole conceit of this situation. Besides eating a tremendous amount of food, I mean a full chicken and pork line and some soup that has a lot of cream and a biscuit. It was a lot of food decides that. Blue quickly. find out your competition a friendly competition between neighbors. Five folks. Are. For. The whole arena is split in half on one side. You've got the north wind on the other side. And, the announcer who rides in on this horse on his steed. They just. He encourages each side to jeer at the other. Side fireworks. He asked you to kind of jeer at them. And then he goes to the South side and he tells us outside. Northern. Third. Foul smelling. Slobber all gas. Good here, way out of a wet paper bag there. Before we get started. You may hear a few names that you don't recognize. There's Aisha Harris who wrote a critical profile of the stampede after which Dolly removed the word Dixie from the events name. By the way we have put a link to that story in our show notes for this episode. There is also Dolly's nephew. Brian seaver as a kid Brian was talented break dancer, who sometimes performed onstage with Dolly he gives Shima and Jad a tour of Dolly's child home. In Tennessee's smokey mountains, Sarah's marsh is list. Who wrote a book about Dolly? Parton and University of Tennessee, Professor Lynn Sakho taught a class called Dolly Parton America, which is where the series got its name. Okay, let's jump into the interview. We kick things off with Shima revealing how she and Jad prepared for an introductory conversation with Dolly Parton. He comes up to me. This is this is actually kind of fun. He comes up to me. He has a book he like goes into the cabinet behind. My desk gets out a piece of yellow paper painted around up a tape. Sit around the outside of the book and he's like this top secret, but I needed to read this and then. I, need you to prepare me for a conversation with the person now as you know, I've already been researching and doing other things for his talk and other and other ideas that we're kind of cooking up for other series, and so he tells me it's Dolly, and you know so I read. This book is covered in yellow fluorescent paper. Which I think was unnecessary I don't. Don't think anyone cares so I read it I. Write all the questions, and are you writing questions like? Are you knowing okay? We're GONNA do this. Do you have any premise for the show yet? We're like what kinds of questions are you writing down? Just questions pop into your head as you're reading it or this was a very yeah. This is a very moment so this. This is just the introductory conversation. So I also think we just needed to have an introductory conversation you know before you even touch certain things and we were both green, which is the beauty of kind of a jazz reporting is? He's okay with like not knowing anything when he begins which I think. adds to kind of the journey. You go on when you start telling. Telling the story, so the listener is going on the same ride you on which is very, I think emotionally fulfilling so we didn't really know when we started we. We knew enough basics and I brought to him everything I found really interesting. The passages I had compelled questions. We go way went over them edited and he went to interview Dolly and he comes back. I listened to the tape. And you hear this in the third episode of the series where she's like even GonNa. Get a question in because ninety minutes goes by. After his first question, and she just does the Dalai magic

How Many Continents Are There?
"Two plus two equals four the world's Brown. There are seven continents on earth. But that last one isn't quite so cut and dried here. In the United States students learned that there are seven continents North, America. South America Europe Asia. Africa, Australia and Arctic. But that's hardly the last word on the matter and much of Europe students learn that there are six continents Africa. America Antarctica Asia Australia slash. And Europe. There's a five continent model which lists Africa. Europe Asia America and Oceana Slash Australia, and that's by the way why there are five rings on the Olympic, flag. And, some experts think that four is the way to go using as their criteria landmasses. Separated by water rather than manmade So Afro Eurasia America and Arca and. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, some people said there were just too. It's the old including Europe Africa and Asia and the new encompassing north and South America. So what really makes a continent continent? We spoke by email with Dan Montello. A geography professor at the University of California Santa Barbara he said nothing really determines a continent except historical convention, a bit of an overstatement, but mostly valid a certain factors make a landmass more or less likely to be called a continent at various times in history by various people, but nothing can be said to determine continent tally, a completely principled, non arbitrary way. Take for example, the vast country of Russia six point, six million square miles or seventeen million square kilometers a why has often been counted as part of Europe, rather than Asia Montello explained. The Euro Mountains are taken to separate Asia and Europe. But only because Russians wanted their great city of Moscow to be European, so the euros were a convenient marker for that arbitrary decision. Continents are mostly spatially contiguous collections of landmasses larger than countries, but smaller than hemispheres of course cotton's do not necessarily fit entirely within single earth hemispheres, and thus cannot be defined by ranges of latitude or longitude. Okay, so how about plate tectonics if certain landmasses are constrained to one of those massive shifting hulks? Can we safely call it? A continent Montello Says No. Quote Plate tectonics has nothing to do with it historically, and it certainly could not provide a principal basis for continents now. Nearly every continent includes parts of multiple plates. The. Same goes for climate after all continents contain multiple climates as evidenced by Alaska's Arctic. Chill compared with Florida's humid heat. They're both part of North, America. Mountain ranges and coastlines are useless to as our culture and politics. Montella said neither ethnicity race culture nor politics has ever defined continents except by conventional theories that were largely mythical such as old and fallacious ideas about correspondences between races and continents. Politically Hawaii is part of the US but is in Oceania rather than north. America Greenland is controlled by Denmark for now, but is considered part of the North American continent. So really it boils down to whom and when you ask Montello, said no one can say as a matter of principle fact, how many cotton's there are because the decisions are largely based on convention and convention that goes in and out of fashion over time, and is still debated today. He concedes these days. Many geographers would opt for a list of

Ross Jeffs on Individualizing Speed Training by Understanding Concentric
"We have an awesome show for you lined up on individualizing factors and speed training. individualization has been one of my favorite topics to get into I feel like one of the most rewarding things that. Seems to happen throughout the process of coaching athletes is finding that athlete who just wasn't responding to the training that they had been given and looking at them, and and having the layers of awareness to understand where they're at and his into as an individual giving them the training they need and seeing them succeed. That is one of my absolute favorite things as a coach and. And that's why these podcasts on training individualization. I just enjoy them a ton, so Ross Jeff's. He was on the podcast back on episode, one forty, five, talking about trainers versus racers, which again is another element of individualization, basically knowing how to train athletes based off of how close they can get to their peak performance output in practice versus competition and how to train them correspondingly. Ross is currently working as a sprints jumps in hurdles coach at the aspire academy in Doha Cutter. He formally has worked in the Netherlands is the sprints and jumps coach. He's also coached under the guidance of Jonas Dodo within this speedwork system. Outside the track field Ross's worked with a number of athletes. From -rageous sports including tennis boxing. Olympic medalists from backs, basketball and rugby sevens, and Ross really has a full gamut of people that he's worked with. He's absolutely one of the most brilliant young coaches I've talked to. He's open-minded. He's curious. He has a huge tribe of mentors and I always learn things that are very applicable whether I reading his articles or obviously talking to him in these podcasts, so for the show today Ross is going to get into the idea behind on three types. Types of sprinting or three types of sprinting athletes and how to identify those, and then how those athletes ten respond best to training, and so I've seen a presentation that Ross did on this I was thoroughly intrigued, and unlike we have to do a podcast on this and so I'm super lucky to have him back and so we're going to get into that. We're going to get into three types of these three types of sprinting athletes identifying them and then how to train them. And whether you attract coach or not, there's a ton of gold in the show just in the sense that honestly if you're a track coach, a lot of times like if you're training jumpers, you may have a group that is almost more going to be close to one type. Were says a team sport. You're going to have a lot of types and so being able to just go through these ideas. It's going to give you a great new layers awareness, and this was an awesome show, so all that being said. Let's get onto episode two six with Ross Jeff's. Ross man awesome. Have you back? How how have you been? has there been any. I've been doing any online coaching in the midst of all this. What's what's happening in the world to track and field right now? Ed, you'll find, have me May Yeah, it's interest. Not Come in Cadillac up in about almost a year now so. Been in lockdown since. At Emma, so we've been there most fought training session close, so there's no, there's not much garnell. Plenty plenty of time was that where this presentation that we're GonNa talk about today was born. I'm sure that's been. It's been in the works right for a long time, but did that. Give you the free time to get all this together. Yeah. The James Baker whose who who runs fullness performance, and he's kind of been bugging me to kind of put together for a while, so it's the right time to do things. For sure I think sometimes when there's little bit more free time or downtown I know for me. It's been a lot easier to get a wider spectrum of guests on for sure on my own end with all this on the for the podcast, but I I was really still I know our our last time with the trainers versus racers was awesome. I mean it gave me so many things to think about an implement, and so I was super excited to see that you add the. New a new categorization, and of course we talked about this like no, not the goal isn't to put athletes boxes, per se, but just the more we can learn about how different outfits respond is is just so incredible and interesting to me and so. Let's kick this off. Let's to tell us about. Your your category, your categorization, concentric, elastic and metabolic maybe to start with the history of it, like where where did all this come from in terms of you? Your journey of deciding or or determining which athletes I know, track sprinters. We're talking about specifically, but which types of sprinters were responding to which types of training? So. Springtime into briefly set the scene fest. I think if you watch. The Olympics there are many commonalities inconsistencies around. Will faucets sprinters in the while. Technically, but there's also some variation, right and all too often this variation schroeck officer. As an idiosyncrasy oh. You know this athlete would run faster if they run like Basil D'Amato, isn't a nominee, so we shouldn't coalpit. Will actually might be inefficient for one person might be actually efficient for a number, and it's the same if you analyze training program I mean in this hundred meter final that it's going to be some very similar themes that coaches through the face, but that also be some very different themes. We know people have run. Teno running never more than two times I meet some of the way up to five hundred six hundred arrests so very early mccutchen career realized that Sanofi just one in very different need to the program that they were given an equal equally, they responded very differently to kind technical changes well. Her when this happens. Time and time again over to for years you start to see some click consistencies than pictures around what kind of profile you haven't is and then to go that people have been putting some ideas out on the topic around neuro. Typing in action type toilets fouts five typing stuff from Hank. Ulcers put some stuff out around muscular Hashtag as good a reset from the distance, running community around Ariel terrestrial runners, so it's kind of blended all these ideas and something that. into something I understand in seeing can apply on a consistent
Why Did Mitsubishi Furlough the SpaceJet?
"Development of the Mitsubishi regional jet kicked off with great fanfare in two thousand, eight, the to family aircraft offered an environmentally friendly design and state of the Art Pratt and Whitney geared turbofan engines. It was also a milestone for Japan's aerospace industry, which has developed just one complete commercial aircraft since World War Two. The Y. S. eleven turboprop, which ceased production in nineteen, seventy four. Aircraft Lesser Titan Steven udvar-hazy told Mitsubishi at the time that if it could pull the program off, it could quote do what Toyota has done in cars and quote, first deliveries were targeted for two thousand thirteen, but that date came and went, and the program struggled with repeated delays. Recently rechristened the space jet, the program seemed to have stabilized, and then the covid nineteen crisis hit faced with its parent company's need to drastically cut expenses. Mitsubishi aircraft has suspended development of one of the to space. Joe Models halted test flights and wound down production. So. Can the program survive this setback? And how does it alter the already turbulent dynamics in the regional jet market? Joining me to try to make sense of all this are Bradley. Parrot, aviation weeks Beijing bureau chief who has followed the Mr J.. procreate spaceship program for many. And in Frankfurt, aviation weeks executive editor for Commercial Aviation Jens Flottau so, Brad, let's start with you. Would you fill us in on? What's going on with the space jet? Yes, there's a very apt metaphor we can use basically the programs being fellow D- Justice and employer over the past few months may have told her a worker to start working. Just go home, but bought consider him or herself sack. The the sorry Nyj I had space jet. Basic Development is basically being welcomed down to a very slow low level It's not being completely. Stop so far as I can tell and very little is happening for the moment for how long well we don't know, but just as an employee as being followed has not has not been set. The Emma J program has not been canceled. Sorry, spaceship program, forcet an Olympic explain exactly what what is flowing amounts to. The company has six prototypes which are being completed. There were four main tests light. Light, base, in Moses Lake in Washington that fleet was waiting for another aircraft, the sixth most recently built one, which is the one which is crucial cruise, one is the one that actually embodies the the standard of design which can be certified, and the aircraft was supposed to go was supposed to carry the main burden of the remaining flat testing that was a situation as about three months ago two months ago. what's happened now of course is that. Is that the mostly basis bay multiple? The small remaining there just to maintain the the prototypes. That's important. They're not being scrapped or anything like that to being maintained and that six prototype which has finally finished in March is still in Meghalaya, and that's where it's interesting for the moment. At the State of the program, most development is actually flight testing, and they're not doing The production will. Production is continuing for the eighth off seven speed finished. The eighth is, we'll be finished. But other production is being stopped. which will mean -Tory work. Flight testing work. What's left? The development engineering team, and that's going to be reduced to some extent, and that's basically what's going to be puttering along for the duration one lost. Important point is that. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries which is the majority owner of Mitsubishi. Aircraft decided in early May to go ahead with the purchase of Combodia CJ program, including factories that indicates love commitment to the program. Brats I'm I mean the the most intriguing part of the to be at least is the shelving of the M one hundred at the smaller. Version of the two, and as far as I can tell, they are going back to the Bronx drawing. Bolt for this program now that it has finally become a scope compliance the US. I'm just curious. Do you have any indications about what's that's relaunch might entail is becoming bigger is becoming smaller was a would at all. No simple answer is no. They probably don't themselves

I have no idea how this would have been judged but also there was any competitive event called ethnic dancing. I if any of that sounds racist guys. That's just because you're paying attention. Yeah that does sound racist. Also sounds like Philadelphia when the Eagles won the Super Bowl in two thousand eighteen idiots literally climbing greased poles javelins. 's loincloths Moynihan.

Your first thought was yeah. That reminds me of Philadelphia Right. So also what point. For the world's fair there was supposed to be a bullfight really in an arena in St Louis. Really an arena. Purpose built just for this bullfight and that might have been. Okay I guess except for the bullfighting. Except that right before the bullfight itself someone remember that. Saint Louis actually had a law against bullfighting. At which point they cancelled the bullfight. Just before was scheduled to begin with a full arena of paying customers. The crowd totally fucking unimpressed by the sudden realization that they were standing in a custom built arena made for something which was presumably illegal before they lay that first brick so they naturally demanded a refund for their bullfighting tickets. Just as naturally since this was Saint Louis. They were told to go fuck themselves. So the crowd. Burt the arena to the ground. So Saint Louis all right all right. Can I have my money back now? I started giant. Fuck and fire okay. It's nine hundred four. How come back and go wrong. Thankfully nobody was hurt. And that's because all of this happened on a Sunday which is a day which I guess is earmarked for Church and bullfights but not only you know they say this whole thing mixed this exhibit with the Philippine Exploitation.

It's been widely claimed that the waffle cone was an invention of the ferrets. Total Bullshit not true but Dr Pepper was actually. I in flew on the world here okay. For the day. It was healthy compared to most other doctors. And IT'S AMAZING. A number of other foods such as hamburgers hot dogs and ICE T. We're actually also popularized at the fair but the only reason I included this paragraph. Here's because by far the most iconic was daughter of slaves any Fisher who whipped up some of her soon to be famous quote beaten biscuits. Oh my God. Daughter of slaves was selling beaten biscuits at the fair. Also there was a full-size elephant made entirely out of all mints. And you can see a picture of that thing. It's insane that's nuts actually comes actually not. I think now that we know where he's at. The Hague should definitely prosecute Dr Pepper for war crimes. They could find pneumatic Dr Peppers the best. Your Hitler you talk. Yeah love the taste of dot matrix printer on the Fritz. You Dr Dr Pepper. Right now as you want but like twenty six other flavors they combine. They asked the guy who invented Dr Pepper. What it tastes like. He said I wanted to case like a soda. Fountain Smells Guy who invented it could come up with does then. There was the Olympics. So America's first Olympics actually was here and the marathon which. I promise that I will get to right.

All right see so so. Let's talk. Marathon I guess when you and I think marathon we probably think of a twenty six point two mile race there. Probably some other details there but that's generally a good starting place now so for the auto box free thinkers done in Saint Louis. The Saint Louis Olympic Marathon was just over twenty four and a half miles. Oh has laid out from start to finish ISH. Ish GotTA close the best way to tell you the stories to tell you about the first several people who cross the finish line in order of that crossing though not without first describing the code but they couldn't get an exact just distance. Yeah right I. I hope they did. Was they realized they were short. The last second and then there was a gym teacher make. Any new wind sprints back and forth across the finish line up just two more times around the track and touched. The lines touched a lot. Pick up the eraser all right so the day of the race was hot. I mean it was like really fucking like like late August in Saint Louis fucking predictably hot. The heat index the day of the race was one hundred thirty five degrees. Okay let's in nineteen thousand four. They were doing that in ninety four. That's just like a fat guy. Going outside and sweating for a few seconds being like one thirty five. Come on Frank. Be Scientific hold this mercury. I say a self described by a race official as quote the most difficult a human being was ever asked to run over metal. Think they were wrong. The roads were covered in several inches of lung. Choking dust there were seven hills on the course ranging from one hundred to three hundred feet. Ecorse wasn't roped off in any way for the runners nor the roads maintained or repaired so large rocks and stones were strewn across primitive dirt streets. The runners had to dodge crosstown traffic horses audible. Pedestrians trains trolley cars. Yeah okay all right but so far this is what is what does every morning but with Haley. He's right there.

The US Justice Department is investigating sexual abuse within US Olympic organizations the following the case against former national gymnastics team Dr Larry Nassar currently serving ineffective life sentence for sexually assaulting women and girls. The Federal Inquiry Creek comes ahead of the two thousand twenty Olympics in Tokyo joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca O'Brien Rebecca. This seems like a widespread investigation allegation which groups have you found that are under investigation right now by the Justice Department so it is a wide ranging investigation and it's actually I think best thought of as multiple investigations that interconnect and the important bodies to think about here are the US Olympic Committee the Center for Safe Sport USA gymnastics and and USA Taekwondo and the FBI which is sort of a side issue but think of it as like a layer cake right this mitigation which is being led by multiple offices offices in the Justice Department along with irs criminal investigators is looking at bad actors who are coaches or doctors in the gym level of various Olympic Sports. It's across the United States and then secondarily. There's an investigation into potential cover ups and maybe financial and business wrongdoing by the national governing bodies are N. G. Bees like USA gymnastics or USA Taekwondo and the third level here. Is You limit committee to the big overarching organization Asian. They're looking you know as well their response to sexual abuse allegations another potential financial wrongdoings now how big of an impact did the Larry Nassar Sir case have on the current investigations. This was pretty blockbuster case shook up the world of gymnastics in the Olympics too large extent what I think I mean the Larry Nassar case it slowly began building came first surfaced right after the Rio Olympics more than three years ago now and what I find incredible is that what the Nassar case not only did it first of all you know hundreds of women came forward with allegations but it really also opened shed light on all these other cases like in USA taekwondo or there had been allegations and some mm cases convictions of coaches that had kind of been lost to history and these this repeated. There's a trend over decades of misconduct induct and sex-abuse in a number of different sports that no one really had paid close attention to on a grand scale so the national case really not only was had a tremendous impact on on gymnastics in the Olympic Committee but it also just opened the floodgates as it were now we are looking ahead to the twenty twenty games in Tokyo what under the implications for the US Olympic system as we have been talking about the Nassar case did cause a lot of damage to the institution yet national case did a lot of damage image to USA gymnastics but it also had some blowback on the US Olympic Committee because of executives there who were informed of it and didn't necessarily take steps that many people in the public thing you know they they didn't talk about it more publicly. They didn't take steps to advance the investigation and they leave with egging their face and what is important about these investigations. I the thing is that they show the continued legal pressure on the USOC. There's political pressure with also legal and potentially criminal pressure on some of the executives or former executives of these organizations and going into twenty twenty. They're going to want to resolve this. I mean not only do you. WanNa make sure people are safe going to the Olympics but also it looks bad if the USOC he is heading to the next Olympics with this cloud of uncertainty and investigations over their head and of course you know in nine years they're going to be hosting the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles so oh you know we'll see how they resolve this Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca O'Brien.

"Ken swift is a break dancer in case you don't know he's kind of a big deal in hip hop to i would like to be introduced as ken swift from seven gems new york city and what the seven gems hip hop movement ken was a member of the rock steady crew and the reason we're talking to him a dancer on an economics podcast fast because break-dancing looks like it is headed to the olympics it's been provisionally approved for paris twenty twenty four just needs one more vote to seal the deal and ken has thoughts what's about that i mean i think it's pretty cool i mean me personally i mean i grew up with sports i love sports i was an athlete before i even started playing records and one thing i have to say is that i don't think that breaking is a sport because of that because i have that experience break-dancing economics in sports we really do it all here i totally but there are other similar less traditional sports also heading to the olympics in tokyo two thousand twenty you're gonna see skateboarding sports climbing which is rock climbing and surfing and kansas he's cool with the decision to i'd breaking to the olympics he has a lot of friends who are going to be involved and he wants to support them all but but still there is a lot to think about like how the international olympic committee the and break-dancing are going to get along you have to understand dance something they have a way of doing things the works in specific ways you know there's all types of different things happening you know that you would see and hear about with olympics so how is that going to affect the art form i don't know you know we were going to just have to wait an and let time do it it doesn't see how this all works out for you so you may be wondering why something like break-dancing might be headed to one of the largest international sporting events in the world while one reason people aren't watching during the olympics like they used to organizers hope that adding some jazzy new sports may draw in more eyeballs what does that mean for the athletes and for those new sports that will be under a global spotlight for the first time i'm sally herships on today's show we're going to look at olympic results not scores scores the athletes get but the impact on the sport of going to the olympics for the first time support for this podcast and the following message come from google domains google domains helps make your business a reality with the tools and partners for building your website site liker pro and premium security features and included for free make it happen et domains dot google slash NPR break-dancing may may be headed to the olympics and it's actually easy to understand why viewership of the olympics has been disappointing of late the winter olympic viewership has been falling for years and for the summer olympics it's been kind of flat for the last decade or so so organizers want sports that are going to draw in more viewers and those sports include things like skateboarding and break-dancing using the process for adding a new sport to the olympics is long and it is complicated but when sport makes it through or over all of these hurdles and reaches the olympics olympics there is a name for what happens next we sort of came up with this olympic balance the olympic bound says tom cove he's the ceo oh of the sports and fitness industry association which researches participation in sports tom looks at why people play sport and why later they might quit a sport in the olympic balances for certain sports that get a participation increase immediately after the olympics there are the sports parts that we love year round football basketball yes the pace for then there are sports that we love to love just every four years that is the olympic bounce it is the name for this weird pattern that happens around the olympics when we watch swimming and gymnastics track and field because cardiff are you ever gonna buy tickets to lake up track and field events like some kind of dash that is not happening around the olympic no but when the olympics do come around on you can rest assured that i will pretend to be an expert in all of those sports i can talk about him by the water cooler it's gonna be awesome i totally new will look after the olympics there's a kind of lingering effect so participation rates for example for some kids they go up olympic sports like swimming and gymnastics that's that's what's referred to as the bounce for the year after the olympics are over participation rates in these sports still goes up but in that second year after the olympics end well yeah well you see a reduction in participation and then you see sort of stabilized take swimming before the last olympics there about two point eight million swimmers but during the here after the olympics everyone's excited they saw michael phelps and that number of swimmers it spikes to three point three million i kinda get that that by the way michael phelps winning all those metals everybody's like yeah now i'm gonna you know consume ten twelve thousand calories a day and it's been four hours in the pool will totally be another year passes and reality sinks in and carpool time and corine in your hair are and start to burn up right and you realize maybe you're not heading for the olympic maybe you're shy about putting on speedo totally speaking for other people not me so fewer swimmers the number goes back down to just over three million so that is the olympic bounce there's this big spike then a draw bob but ultimately if you imagine a little line chart in your head overall the line is going up in other words even with drop off after the olympics there are more for people swimming than before and then once the olympics come back around in that fourth year well they're gonna get hyped up because obviously the television network worked broadcasting the olympic games wants viewers to tune in NBC wants to promote the olympics 'cause they have the olympics and they also promoting the sport and more and more comes out and all of a sudden you get all these college players and then you've got high school players and they see it on TV and now you have a pro league that's evolving and all of that is the way it really grows both from a participation in an economic impact point of view so what ends up happening is that schools middle schools high schools all schools they invest and parents sign up their kids as for private one on one lessons and we haven't even talked about all the equipment yet nose plugs bathing caps uniforms helmets and there's another you're kind of bump that being added to the olympics can bring you legitimacy tom says take a sport like snowboarding already kind of a big deal but the olympic kahlo ehlo can make it more acceptable so if you're a parent and you're kind of worried that your kids are like out there doing crazy tricks off the side of a mountain you might not let them but if it sounds sounds more legitimate now you're thinking hey maybe i'll get the kids snowboarding lessons maybe i'll let them do backflips or whatever maybe they will go to the olympics and win a gold medal that's all right so parents are on board and new businesses are also springing up to build training facilities with trampolines and ramps and rails and all those other things but all this popularity can can also bring some problems which some of you wrote to us about one listener was worried about rock climbing or sport climbing which is also likely to have its olympic debut soon so the sport is getting more recognition but sportclimbing can be dangerous if amateurs get all excited and start heading outdoors and climbing real rocks without being properly trained that could lead to some real trouble you don't see me climbing up the walls d you know because i am here down on the ground right those of us who you do not have vertigo seem increasingly interested in this people also have thoughts about how being added to the olympics could change the culture of a sport here's ken swift the break dancer one more time and so just to make understand correctly you're saying when you feel a song or something it's personal it's creative maybe something that's.

"Hey, guys, we're about to get into my interview with the creative minds behind a film called Olympic dreams. And those people are Alexi Pappas, Nick Kroll and Jeremy teicher now Olympic dreams, you probably haven't heard of. But I am happy to evangelize for it. I saw a little while ago. And it premiered here it's off by south west down in Austin. And it is really like a small miracle movie. I'm sure it's going to get distribution soon. And you guys will be able to see it. But I thought that the story of the making of the movie was so cool that we would be able to share it with you. Now Alexi is a Olympic athlete. So she is actually out there. She ran in two thousand sixteen Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and she and her husband, Jeremy are filmmakers as well. Jeremy's a director and really accomplished filmmaker on every level because he is essentially on this film. Mm-hmm. Is his own crew. And here's what they did. They got in with the Olympic Committee who asked them to be artists in residence, and they went and made a romantic comedy in pian Chang during the Olympics. And it was really it's a really incredible accomplishment. Basic, the basic story set up is that Alexi plays a woman in Penelope who's competing as a cross country. Skier she competes early in the game. So she has a lot of free time afterwards. She's kind of feeling a little bit of an emptiness after competition, and she meets a volunteer dentist at the games. Played by Nick Kroll, and they kind of have this this worlwide end friendship slash romance throughout the the movie and every scene takes place in some part of the Olympic experience. Whether it's the opening ceremonies that dining hall at the Olympic village in the dorms in and around peon Chang going to the pennant behind the scenes of these ethnic events. I kind of have like a little bit. A frustration. Sometimes when I'm watching television because you can kind of see see the seems a little bit. You can see people they're shooting on sound stages. They're shooting in a lot of interiors because that's easy to control you DC to light you can kind of get things in and out. But sometimes it doesn't feel of the world. This movie is kind of remarkable because it feels both very of the world, you get to see all these incredible locations, and you know, they're running around in parking lots and in like food courts, and then they're like at a karaoke bar or a nightclub. But then it also is a world basically like ninety nine point nine nine nine nine percent of us will never get a chance to see. We will not be Olympic athletes.

"So I I spoke with Calgary radio host rob Breckenridge to find out why that city rejected the idea of making an Olympic bid, the next step was to speak with someone invested in Canada's Olympic ambitions, someone who knows personally what it's like to work with the I ac- so I called up John furlong the day after the Calgary plebiscites. Speaking. Hey, John, it's Nikki calling. How you doing? John was president and CEO of the twenty ten Vancouver Olympic organizing committee. He's currently chair of own the podium. That's Canada's Olympic athlete development program out of curiosity right now. Are you still in Calgary? I flew home this morning. I left a crooked on I just got back to our go. What was it like in Calgary yesterday? Can you walk me through how plebiscite day went? It was a day of you know, hive and lows. I mean, I think the people that have been working on the bid for the last, you know, whatever long been on a months and months and months where I think full of optimism, I think there was a feeling Calgarians. We're going to write to do Kagan. But I think people felt that the bait was between two relatively small vocal groups and that everyone else had been watching and they were about to step in and settle everything and given Calgary's relationship with the Olympics their track record with the Olympics. They're still a sort of an Olympic superpower when it comes to developing the best athletes in our country. Everybody is taught that you know, there's a limit connection to almost every family in Calgary. But the problem was that, you know, it just seemed that at the back of all of you know, there was there was some feeling amongst the public which sort of came out in the vote. People were confused. They didn't. It had that there was a coherent vision behind the bid, and they just felt nervous about it. And they walked away from it. And you know, I think people shocked at the end and pretty disappointed. I was a bit surprised. I thought you know, Calgarians wouldn't fact bet on themselves. They before it back. I you know, I made a comment this morning had Calgary voted. Yes. They would have been in the pole position to win against Weeden Italy because they would have had a financial plan that's been approved by government. They have government support.

Teams Calgary now joins the growing list of cities internationally that are saying no we can't be bothered to host the Olympic Games for a variety of different reasons. You know, we can look at Calgary on a micro level. But if we check it out on a macro level is it just another example of cities who are skeptical of hosting the games of this growing. Skepticism surrounding the I O C of perhaps a larger trend that more and more cities will continue to say no to the Olympic Games, you know, as much as I'm a huge fan. You know, I have to say that losing Calgary's kind of a big deal. And you know, it's not like losing a brand new city. It's not like losing a city that doesn't have stuck in a row or too strong. And doesn't have a truck Calgary's. God, there's a real strident kind of culture in Calgary. They get stuff done there and moving them will be noticed. And I think the IOT probably feel this is quite a big loss. And unfortunately, so she kind of got in the way of everybody's thinking..
