History with Jackson

Today on History with Jackson Jackson sits down with Dr Karen Carr to discuss her book ‘Shifting Currents: A World History of Swimming’. This was a fascinating conversation that makes us look at swimming from a different angle by touching on its links to societal views, its entanglement with the politics of power and exclusion, and even some pre-history!
