About

In The Pod, we chat about many aspects of ocean swimming, some of which you may not have thought of before, from the tiny things that can eat you when you're swimming, to how we can keep the oceans swimmable and oceans on other planets. And we'll also occasionally talk about swimming in the ocean here on Earth! I'm Marc West, a mediocre but enthusiastic ocean swimmer from Sydney. You can read and hear more of my science musings over here, find me on twitter as @westius and instagram as @westius.
