Episode 94 - Jill Andrews
Our first VOLUNTEER(!!!), the wonderful Jill Andrews, joins the Salt Lake 2002 Retrospective podcast and remembers pin trading, losing a volunteer assignment only to get a better one, living in a 16-foot trailer during Games-time and a guest book signed by Olympians from around the world (recorded 10 March 2021).
