Mitch and Loretta will be taking fans into new waters with the first ever official Swimswam podcast dedicated to all things swimming.

Mitch comes at you from Toronto, Ontario, Canada while Loretta resides in northern Kentucky in the good ole U S of A. Together the duo will be bringing you unique swimming coverage from an angle that has never been explored before.

Both lead writers for Swimswam, the two also currently coach the sport. With swimming expertise that stretches far beyond the shallow end the pair will be discussing some of the most talked about issues in the sport of swimming today.

In week one Mitch and Loretta will tackle the issue of Ryan Lochte‘s new controversial under water dolphin kick  and the FINA ban on his new kicking method in the individual medley races.

They will be joined by Lochte himself who goes into full detail about the new kick and where he sees it’s future.
