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 Olympics, plus an intimate look into the unseen details that only the athletes themselves can tell.
A few days ago, we referenced our sister podcast, In the Village, hosted by Elizabeth Beisel. Her recent interview with Katie Ledecky was so insightful and fun that we wanted to share it to The Podium audience.
So for today’s episode of our show, Katie Ledecky hauls her medal collection to In the Village to catch up with former teammate Elizabeth Beisel. The pair talk about the amount of outfits required for a finals day, transitioning from first timer to team leader and scheduling in 5 minute increments.
