Chloe California TourIn this episode of The Effortless Swimming Podcast, I have two special guests: Chloe McCardel and Michael (Murph) Renford (son of legendary marathon swimmer, Des Renford).

Chloe is aiming to break Des’ record of 19 English Channel crossings this season. In this podcast we talk about the need for adventure and connection with the ocean that drives marathon swimmers.
