The Olympics originated in Ancient Greece, and were resurrected in the 1890’s after a 1,500 year ban.

Since then, the International Olympic Committee has been behind every Olympic Games.

In this episode, we explore the story of how the IOC turned the Olympics into a huge commercial success and whether the cities that host the games end up winning or losing.
