The Tidal Year


Calum & Robbie Hudson, The Wild Swimming Brothers

Season 1, Ep. 1

Calum, Robbie and Jack Hudson are The Wild Swimming Brothers. Together, they went on a 9-day adventure to swim from the source of the River Eden to its mouth in the Solway Firth near their childhood home. After such a transformative endurance swim, they decided they wouldn't stop there and embarked on more world-first swims including swimming across terrifying maelstroms in Norway, Scotland and the Arctic Circle. 

In this episode, I chat to Calum and Robbie about reconnecting with childhood memories, overcoming (or maybe just accepting fear) and that need to rewild ourselves in a busy world. Most of all, this is a great chat about the importance of brotherhood. And I hope you enjoy it!
