This week’s guest has been compared with the Vicar of Dibley, and she doesn’t mind one bit! This week, the Reverend Kate Bottley brings all the warmth and humour that Dawn French’s character was famous for, and then some. Gabby and Kate discuss all the big topics in this episode: love, death, and skinny dipping! Professor Mike Tipton also joins them to talk about best practices for those who are new to wild swimming, and Kate shares why it’s the one hobby she has stuck with.
Below are some links to studies Mike references in this episode:
The Physiological Society - Cold water immersion: kill or cure?
British Journal of Sports Medicine - Cold water therapies: minimising risks
BMJ Case Reports - Open water swimming as a treatment for major depressive disorder
