Swim Wild Podcast

Welcome to the Swim Wild podcast - the podcast for the wild swimming community. Interviewing members of your 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".

Who we talk to

Each week we interview a member of the wild swimming family. Whether they swim neoprene or skins, are fair weather dippers or ice milers, whether they prefer lake, river or sea, each interview brings to life the reasons they love this sport and how it has changed their life.
