Amateur freediver and video enthusiast Jim Richardson, aka Lake Superior Aquaman, shares his origin story with the Pressroom Podcast this week.


With a GoPro and camera pole in hand, Richardson takes his viewers on a swim underneath the chilly waters of Lake Superior for a chance to see what many people will never see. Hear about his underwater experiences, which include swimming alongside a 3-foot muskie.  


What we are into this week: Oil of oregano, the new recliners at the Duluth 10 theater, and Argentine short-story writer Jorge Luis Borges.
