Price Atkinson and Dustin “Specks” Tomasetti deliver an American-lensed Olympic mixed doubles primer as Vicky Persinger and Chris Plys fly to Beijing.
Price is embedded with the team and coaching staff, and he’ll serve in a media attaché role in China. This episode provides access to the team’s training sessions in Los Angeles and an exclusive sit-down with Persinger, one of the last interviews she gave before departing for Beijing.
The guys also discuss the mixed doubles field Team USA will be challenging plus the (hopeful) avalanche of TV coverage fans can watch. There’s also the expected NFL banter—naturally.

The three amigos are back—before one of them jets to China.
The guys are back together as they catch up on everything happening in and around U.S. curling including the cancellation of the 2022 U.S. Nationals and more, including a look back on the U.S. Olympic Trials.
“The Godfather” Joe Calabrese also talks with Laura Yee and Courtney Shaw of the Potomac CC and JayCee Cooper (Four Seasons CC) about increasing diversity in the sport and the how-tos of creating an inclusive environment.
