Swim Wild Podcast

Welcome to the Swim Wild podcast - the podcast for the wild swimming community. Interviewing members of our tribe about iconic swims, personal challenges, the friends they have made, the impact on their health and well being and finding a deeper connection with the natural world. Testing out the theory that, whenever and wherever we swim outside, we "emerge from the water better versions of ourselves".
