Description

Are sharks the super-predators we think they are? Or have we been baited with great white lies? To find out, we interviewed shark researchers Dr. Taylor Chapple, Dr. Tricia Meredith and Dr. Chris Pepin-Neff, along with surfer Mike Wells.

UPDATE 6/14/19: We removed a line from the episode implying that if you’ve eaten any takeaway fish and chips in the UK, there's a good chance you’ve unknowingly eaten shark meat. In fact, shark meat is not always sold surreptitiously. In the UK and in Australia shark meat it is often labeled flake, rock or huss.

The bull shark is really common on the coast of NC and we just had 2 shark attacks in 2 weeks., one 17 year old had her leg bitten off and had to be amputated, plus she lost 2 fingers, and an 8 year old boy was just attacked a few days ago. I have heard many scientific stories of sharks and we shouldn't be afraid, but since we have had so many bull shark attacks in the last several years, I'm not a fan of going into the ocean. That's just me.
