The ICE Series – How Ice Swimmers Achieve the Impressive, Improbable, and Inconceivable is a WOWSA Live production. The ICE Series is a podcast and collaboration between the International Ice Swimming Association and the World Open Water Swimming Association to share information, education, and heroic activities in the global ice swimming community.

The co-hosts for The ICE Series include Ram Barkai, the founder, visionary and chairman of the International Ice Swimming Association, and Steven Munatones of the World Open Water Swimming Association.

Episode 4 of The ICE Series featured Natalia Szydlowski, Ph.D., a Professor at the Universidad de Concepción del Uruguay with a doctorate in nutrition and author of The Myth of Winter Swimming, a book with largely unknown scientific information about winter swimming.

Dr. Szydlowski’s data was initially derived from her study as a crew member for the successful, unprecedented, 6-day Bering Strait Swim relay, a 53-mile (86 km) relay crossing from Cape Dezhnev in Chukotka, Russia, to Cape Prince of Wales in the state of Alaska, USA.
