Lynne and Queenie are wild swimmers. They swim in rivers and seas throughout the year. They discuss learning to swim, taking up wild swimming, their fear of water and fish (especially conga eels), the death of a friend at sea and coping with the cold.
The Listening Project conversations collectively form a picture of our lives and relationships today. Recordings were made by BBC producers of people sharing an intimate conversation, lasting up to an hour and on a topic of the speakers' choice.
