Welcome to a new episode of the Mountain Malarkey Podcast!
This is the first of our “Special Guest Episodes” and in this episode, Andy and Dave are joined by ice swimmer and world record holder, Cath Pendleton.
Cath’s lists of achievements are something to behold, she placed third in ice swimming world championships, has swum the English Channel and most amazingly holds the Guinness World Record for being the first person to swim an ice mile inside the polar Antarctic Circle! All this while being a mother, a partner and working for the NHS.
So, settle in as the boys get to know the “Merthyr Mermaid” and why Cath does these crazy things, what it takes to achieve these challenges, and what taking on these adventures means for her personally.
