PRX For the Gold

Hi friend of PRX,

Wow, did you see that? Ok, maybe not in real time (thanks, NBC).

We have been alternatively wowed (opening ceremonies), tense (the high bar makes us cringe) and awed (swimming) and this only the first week of the Olympics.

Can we urge you to listen and air this amazing special profiling US women in the FIRST women’s boxing competition? Go For It is pretty darn amazing radio. PDs tell us it is ‘excellent’ with ‘great voices and production.’

Also, welcome Boston listeners to Public Radio Remix! Both WBUR and WGBH have wisely added the service to their schedules and it sounds gooood!
