Live from Rio, it’s Yahoo Sports’ Greg Wyshynski talking all things Olympics. On today’s podcast, Wysh speaks to the darlings of Sochi, the most famous duo in Olympic sports broadcasting, Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir.

It’s a fascinating discussion, covering all aspects of the Olympic experience, from the Opening Ceremony to the thrills of Rio to the challenges of gay athletes to a key question: if you couldn’t win gold, would you rather win silver or bronze?

Also on this podcast: the green fart water in the diving pool, the journalistic misfire of an attempt to track gay athletes, Hope Solo’s total misfire after the United States’ loss in women’s soccer, and the joys of dining on sushi after a Brazilian meatfest dinner. It’s fine material all the way through. Enjoy!
