We’re thrilled to announce a partnership with NBC Sports Group to launch a new podcast - The Podium – taking an inside look into each of the 18 days of competition during the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
As the official NBC Olympics podcast, The Podium will feature exclusive and in-depth interviews with 2018’s most promising Olympians, NBC Olympics commentators, and stories from on the ground in PyeongChang during the Games.
The Podium will be recorded onsite in PyeongChang, and produced by Vox Media. New episodes will release each day beginning Friday, February 9 at 8 a.m. EST, providing a recap of the previous days’ competitions, overnight developments, and a look at the day ahead. The Podium is available on Apple Podcasts across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, CarPlay and iTunes on Mac and PC, and other podcast platforms via iOS and Android devices.
”Audiences seek out Vox Media podcasts for in-depth audio programming that explores and explains the most significant events in our culture,” said Nishat Kurwa, Executive Producer of Audio for Vox Media and Executive Producer of The Podium. ”We’re thrilled to work with NBC Olympics to bring that expertise to the first-ever podcast about the Games.”
The Podium’s premiere episode will be promoted across Vox Media’s network of premium podcasts, including in the feeds of popular shows such as Vox’s The Weeds, Recode Decode, Vergecast, The Polygon Show, SB Nation’s Shutdown Fullcast, and Eater Upsell.
