If you listen to the podcast The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week, as we do, this may not surprise you.

But if you’re not a “weirdo,” then let us be the one to share a fun and timely fact with you about the Olympics: they used to include artistic events!

Since the podcast mostly discussed the painters and not the wordsmiths, we’ll point you first to Literary Hub’s feature on three Olympic medalists in the literary arts.

But both it and The Weirdest Thing share a brief history of the rise and fall of this Olympic experiment, so we certainly encourage you to check out both.
