Episode three of Downstream – our listening project for outdoor swimmers

Welcome to episode three of Downstream, our new audio series of writers reading from their books. This week we hear from Joe Minihane, whose memoir Floating follows in the swim strokes of Roger Deakin’s classic book Waterlog; Anna Deacon and Vicky Allan read from Taking the Plunge – The Healing Power of Wild Swimming for Mind, Body and Soul; and Vivienne Rickman reads from her book Thirty Words for Water, a collection of words and images inspired by her wandering relationship with water since childhood.

Stay up to date with The Dip, our free weekly outdoor swimming newsletter.
