It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episode 180 & 181 – The Olympics Triplecast/What Would Ryan Lochte Do?

For the next two weeks It Was a Thing on TV goes Olympic as we talk about some Olympics related topics. 

First, we start off our coverage is one of the biggest flops of all time.  Three channels of 24/7 Olympic coverage for $125 in 1992?  What’s the catch?  There are a few.  At least those who bought in to the Olympic Triplecast have a Triplecast remote control which likely doesn’t do anything nowadays. 

Then, Our Olympic extravaganza continues with a look into the life and loves of Ryan Lochte, the semi-quotable and infamous star of the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic games.  The first half of this edition is about What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, while the second half is mostly about Lochte’s wit and wis-dumb including interviews and quotes said by the man himself.  Jeah!
