Swim better from a podcast?? Absolutely.

Episodes 4, 5, and 6 ought to be required listening for every triathlete. Real, specific advice on what's really important in the swim. Delivered with a clear (and fun and funny) style that makes it easy to visualize the techniques. They burst some myth bubbles, too, and help focus us all on what truly matters to be a better swimmer.

Too much chatter and not enough content

Gerry and Jim are both very knowledgeable and they do give good info, however that is only about 20% of the show.

I find myself fast forwarding through so much of the show to find the actual content.

Incadinkadoo ,

Listen, and listen real close.

This is the best triathlon swim podcast bar none. I look forward to what Jim and Jerry have to say each time a new episode comes out. Their advice has been outstanding and I truly have been fresh for the bike on all my races since I have started listening to this podcast.
