The Podium: An NBC Olympics podcast. Join us for insider coverage during the 17 intense days of competition at the 2020 Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo. In the run-up to the opening ceremony, we’ll bring you deep into the stories and events that have defined the Olympics and those that will shape the Tokyo games, plus an intimate look into the unseen details that only the athletes themselves can tell.
After a brief cameo from Gold medalist Chloe Kim, the Podium talks to longtime NBC Olympics broadcaster Mary Carillo about breaking gender barriers in sports reporting, her favorite Olympic moments, and the significance of the unified Korean women's hockey team. Then the team heads to the Korean team's game against Sweden, to talk to unified flag-waving fans about the historic moment. Finally, NBC News correspondent Keir Simmons takes us inside North Korea.
