The 2012 Summer Olympics has now officially started, and from here on in we can now all expect to get an almost non-stop coverage of the event by almost every single news media out there. But if you’re looking for more of an editorial approach to the event instead of the typical newscast then look no further than BBC Radio’s Olympic 2012 podcast.

With all of the other podcast channels out there also covering this year’s Summer Olympics, you can’t go wrong with BBC as your primary source of information for anything related to the event. After all, it is one of the host country’s top news networks.

The program is hosted by Eleanor Oldroyd, and this latest episode's highlights include an interview with Team  GB’s cyclist Emma Pooley as she speaks about going for the gold, Minister for Culture, Media and Sport Jerermy Hunt on the final week of preparation and organization for the event, and Triple Jumper world record holder Jonathan Edwards exploring the limits of human physical achievement. Also BBC World Service investigates how top Muslim athletes are coping with the rigors of training and fasting as Ramadan falls over the Olympic fortnight, and more.

You can check out the list of episodes on their iTunes channel, or check out the podcast’s official link on their website.
