Episode 2: Taking The Plunge, Learning To Swim As An Adult

This is episode two of my learning to swim podcast. After 46 years I have decided to try and overcome my fear of water and learn to swim. You can track my journey over these podcasts and hear from other learners, as well as pyschologists and swimming experts. On episode 2 we hear from Olympic medal swimmers Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster on the importance of learning, as well as former Blue Peter presenter Andy Akinwolere about how he learnt to swim in just a matter of weeks and then took part in an extraordinary open water challenge.
