Calum Maclean is an experienced outdoor swimmer, a talented broadcaster and a native Gaelic speaker. In his work, he often combines all three of these skills, creating videos that combine adventure, entertainment and education to teach others about Gaelic words, water safety or responsible behaviour in the great outdoors.
For a taste of what an adventure with Calum might look like, listen to last week's episode 'Uisge'.
Listen to my conversation with Calum in which we cover...
- How he got into outdoor swimming in Scotland,
- Water safety and tips for beginners,
- Growing up with Scottish Gaelic as a first language,
- How Gaelic influences his perception of the landscape,
- And where you can learn Gaelic too.
Plus, you get to hear me making a fool of myself as I try to pronounce some basic Gaelic words and phrases.
