More talk about swimming please!
This podcast could be interesting, but the conversations ramble and seem to be more focused on tangential topics of interest to the podcast host
Too much liberal agenda-pushing, not enough swimming.
I listen to swimming podcasts to better understand my child’s favorite sport and to hopefully get some tips on helping them become a better swimmer. However, the few episodes I have listened to have been about transgender swimmers and feminism in the swimming world. There are plenty of places to learn about these issues but I didn’t think “USA Swimming” would be it. There are quite a few better options out there for actually learning about the sport.
