The science of the sea
About this Podcast:
All Things Considered is a podcast that examines why we do the things we do.
Host Amelia Cullen covers a myriad of topics, gleaning insight from psychologists, experts and academics. Each episode is peppered with the real-life experiences of listeners. Amelia’s job is to find the connection and commonality in these experiences.
In this episode, Amelia talked with Dr Catherine Kelly to discuss our draw to the sea. Dr Kelly is the author of Blue Spaces, a study about the sea, our connection to it and how it can improve our wellbeing.
Mandy and Eoin of Ripple Effect Ireland also share their experiences of sea swimming and why they felt compelled to build a community.
And finally, Jen O’Dwyer, a recent convert opens up about how sea swimming has grounded her during the past year.
