    Tom Shields believes the postponement of the Olympics is a good thing for him -- an extra year of improvement both physically and mentally.

    Tom and I talk about some very real, very personal events in his life. I’m thankful for his openness and willingness to talk about his mental health struggles. If you need help, please reach out to those closest to you. We all need to lean on each other in these strange times.

Swimming’s best podcast

This podcast is for everyone in the swimming community. Bretts guests are current and former world class coaches and swimmers. It’s interesting to hear the different perspectives of the day in the life of swimming’s best. Brett’s conversations with his guests go into detail about the mental side of the sport to the specifics of what they are doing in training. Each episode I learn valuable information to share with my swimmers. Brett is a great guy and this podcast shows his cool demeanor and his love for swimming. This is the best podcast on swimming in my opinion. Thanks Brett!
