How Did I Miss This Podcast? Ross Edgley Talks Open Water Swimming With Joe Rogan
Edgley attempted and completed a 2,884 km assisted stage swim around Great Britain around the coastlines of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland over 157 days between June 1st and November 4th when he was escorted by pilot Matt Knight. He got in and out of the water 209 times during that 5+ month adventure. His stage swim was voted as the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year in a global online poll.
Rogan is an American UFC commentator, podcaster, comedian, and actor who hosts The Joe Rogan Experience, a podcast in which he discusses current events, comedy, politics, philosophy, science, and hobbies with all kinds of personalities, characters, and guests.
These are great widely-heard opportunities for swimmers to be able to explain open water swimming, marathon swimming, aquatic adventures like stage swims to the general public who are vastly ignorant of the elements and challenges that open water swimmers face.
