    Episode 361 - PyeongChang 2018 Opening Ceremony Review (Redux)

    Our latest episode in our classic Olympic Opening Ceremony series is here as we once again go over an Opening Ceremony we have already covered in looking at the 2018 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony from PyeongChang in South Korea! Has this Opening Ceremony actually improved since we watched it six years ago? How excited are we to have so much mascot interaction in this ceremony? Why are we still disappointed by the lack of Psy, even though there is technically Psy in it? Are we in awe of the soprano singer still? Are we slowly becoming nostalgic for Thomas Bach (Olympic Champion Fencing) and his very long speeches? And does this episode make us want to re-visit some other recent Opening Ceremonies for another look? It's all here in another epic episode that you won't want to miss!
