Gearing Up for Grandma’s Podcast
Duluth's own Kara Goucher joins the Season 2 debut of ”Gearing Up for Grandma's” fresh off making her TV analyst debut for NBC at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. There, she provided commentary of several distance running events, including the women's marathon in which Molly Seidel won just the third-ever Olympic medal in that event.
Goucher is joined by our regular host, Peter Graves, and special co-host for this episode, Chad Salmela, both of whom also have broadcasting experience at the Olympic Games.
Together, they recount what were the 2020 Games and talk tricks of the trade, including Goucher answering which is harder — becoming an Olympic athlete or an Olympic TV analyst.
Goucher also reminisces on her hometown race, Grandma's Marathon, with her name still etched in history as the women's event record holder of the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon.
