Wye Oh Why- Britain’s Dumped In Its Rivers

We discuss the national shame that is the state of Britain’s rivers. Nobody is going to take a few gulps when wild swimming. Our rivers are overwhelmed with human waste and factory farm runoff, it’s killing them. We talk about why it’s happened and what we can do to turn it around.
