Bus Radio, Oonagh Slater, Megan Payne Land SwimmingDates: Each Friday, 5pm.
‘Land Swimming’ is a swimming radio show centred on a series of land swimming lessons for these Covid-19 restrictions. Join Oonagh Slater and Megan Payne as they dive into the depths of lack, missing and yearning for swimming. They will share exchanges on how they are trying to fulfil their desire for swimming, and how through their trying, they are still swimming now on land.
Each episode will feature a different on land “swimming lesson”. A guided practice for swimming without large bodies of water at hand. These will be accompanied by reflections, readings and music to support your water and land swimming practices and satiate your withdrawals. Through practice and discussions they write a love letter to swimming and water.
Land Swimming will teach you to swim whatever your limits, to pool water inside and around you. These swimming lessons are for anyone, regardless of prior experience, and regardless of intention to swim in water in the future.
