Toe pick! It’s Olympics time!

I didn’t slam into the ice this week, but I did catch a cold and show up to The Couch with a hoarse voice. Luckily, my friend and friend of the show, Jenny Rapson, was here to carry the conversation. As a self-proclaimed Olympaholic (it’s fine, it’s a word), she was the perfect fit for an episode about the best Olympic-themed movies.

But, of course, before we got to that, we also got into protein-packed snacks (and a possible copycat recipe) and a Netflix thriller that may or may not be a parody. After all, this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome!

A (related) SIDE NOTE: I owe an apology to Eddie the Eagle (the movie, not the man). When we recorded this episode, I’d only watched the first half of the movie. And honestly, I did not like it. But I watched the rest yesterday and ended up really loving it! Sorry, Eddie.

Now, grab a hot cup of tea (it’s great for a sore throat, ahem) and let’s get started!

  • The Cutting Edge (Showtime through Amazon Prime)
  • I, Tonya (Hulu)
