For the longest time we have wanted to bring you a swimming podcast that told the stories of swimming's past as well as its future.
So last month when Brett Hawke slid into my Instagram DM's I knew immediately this was it. This was the moment I had been waiting for.
He said, "Dude don't you think we should start a podcast together in 2020?"
I quickly replied back, "Yes".
Exactly 1 month later we have released the very first episode of...
INSIDE WITH BRETT HAWKE
The conversations that you will hear are unprepared and unedited. As Brett wrote in his podcast description: "Take an intimate look inside the minds of swimming's highest achievers."
His first guest is none other than Jack Roach. To many, Jack is a lot like Yoda.
His bio is far too long to go into everything but maybe his biggest claim to fame was being USA Swimming's National Junior Team Program Director. (The position is now held by James Madison University's finest, Mitch Dalton.)
This position is really perhaps one of USA Swimming's funnest positions. Yes the travel is ridiculous but you get to interact and build relationships with every single athlete that is coming up the ranks in the United States of America.
We have just pushed to the first episode out to all the platforms so it might take a couple days to be everywhere. But soon you'll be able to find "Inside with Brett Hawke" pretty much anywhere you listen to podcasts so please subscribe wherever you like to listen. Here are links to the most popular platforms:
