Danielle Spurling, a teacher and coach from Melbourne, Australia has started her Torpedo Swimtalk podcast.

Spurling explains her podcast, “This podcast chats to elite masters swimmers from around the world, both pool and open water champions. Who are these unsung Masters superstars? Why do they swim? Many of them hold world records and quietly go about swimming amazing times and conquering feats people half their age are in awe of. Quite a few have unfinished business from their youth, and many have rediscovered their love of swimming. The comradeship and sense of belonging to the masters community are the bedfellows of these champions. So settle down with a cuppa, and listen to your weekly dose of all things masters swimming.”
