Jo is joined by photographer Anna Deacon and writer Vicky Allan to discuss the joy of wild swimming and their book ‘Taking the Plunge: The Healing Power of Wild Swimming for Mind, Body and Soul’.
Wild swimming changes lives. The thrill of plunging - or dipping a toe - into open water brings joy, confidence, adventure and friendship. It can wash away stress and sadness, pain and grief. Here water is a great healer, a place to feel gloriously, elementally alive and in touch with yourself, with others and with nature. 'Taking the Plunge' tells the story of why wild swimming has become such a well-being phenomenon through interviews with and breath-taking photos of the people who do it.
And whether you’re picking up or dropping off, Jo provides the soundtrack for the Taxi Service.
