The Podium gets out of the studio and heads to to women's slalom, where (spoiler alert) alpine skiing star Mikaela Shiffrin fails to win a medal in her second event in two days in PyeongChang.

Day 7's episode also takes a hard look at race and winter sports, with Vonetta Flowers, the first black athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

The Podium will publish daily episodes, recapping the day’s events and biggest competitors from the 18 days competition in PyeongChang. Vox Media will produce the podcast on the ground in PyeongChang.

The podcast can be found on Apple Podcasts, Art19, Google Play, Spotify and Stitcher.
