U.S. consumer spending surges in July, but inflation remains tame
"Despite gathering clouds over the global economy. American consumers were still spending merrily in the u._s. In july consumer spending went up by a brisk six tenths of one percent bought and embedded inflation figure. You're favored by the guardians of interest rates at the fed held steady at one point six percent annualized below what the fed likes to see chris. Lowe is chief economist at f. t. and financial so you've got modest inflation which favours an interest rate cut the other thing when the fed looks at these numbers. They don't so much much care. What consumers are doing today. They're thinking about what they might do in the future and the one amish thing in the report is that income only rose rose point one percent. Maybe it's anomalous. Maybe it bounces back but that's another modest reason to think. The fed might cut rates because is there. Consumption forecast is likely going to be a little weaker

The person inside the left, shark costume would not speak publicly. And finally he did earlier this year. His name is Brian Gow. He was a dancer with Katy Perry for five years. Now he's a hairstylist in West Hollywood, and he said he knew what he was doing who's like, I'm a answer, but I just figured, you know what? I'm gonna miss this one up. It'll be more interesting. So we got up. There screwed up the choreography. He will go get an idiot. Everyone's like yes, left shark. You're giving me life. It is okay to be myself in this episode about accepting sharks.

"We need engineer, computer scientists, shark biologist. That's what we need. So calling all people who have interest in all those things do that come see me please. So so it's changing the way we look at sharks technology is literally revolutionizing our understanding the ocean. So what held us back was the lack of tools you can do so much more now than you could twenty years ago in terms of collecting data. Right? Absolutely. And it's because the technologies got us that point. And the great thing is it's getting like minded engineers and late mighty computer scientists to say, okay, I can work with you. That's really cool idea. I can build that for you. I can work with you to build that. And then when that technology comes along, we're suddenly buried in data biologists who aren't used to having that much data suddenly going on my God. What do I do with all this? And now we're working with. Data scientists, they go, hey, I know to help you that. And what it's doing is it's showing people how we use the technology, how we're using it to understand sharks, how they can use that to use the beaches safer, and then it's motivating the next generation of student who is interested in science math or technology or sharks. Do you think that there's a world five, ten years down the line where we look at sharks with the same warmth and reverence that we do Wales and Cougars and other maybe predators who are really astounding. Biologically, I think a, I think a lot of people are getting there. And the tough part is, you know, if you, if you look at predators, general land, predators, ocean, predators, we got rid of them all fifty to one hundred years. We eliminated those things because we perceive them as a potential threat. And what's happened since then is humans of now use the woods and the mountains and the ocean for all sorts of recreation. And we did so without those predators and about twenty five years ago, we recognize the importance of those predators. We started putting in place protections for them, and now that they're coming back, we don't know how to act around them. So there's a big need to teach people how to be predator savvy again. So even example, seals and sea lions, they've come back tremendously. I mean, since remote will Protection Act in nineteen Seventy-three, they went from being on the verge of extinction to being fully recovered. So now it's not uncommon to be at the beach, and I have a sea lion hall out known some cases, the poor animals are sick. I've seen people go place their toddler next to them to take a picture of. That now what point did we think that that was a good idea that animal laying on the beach look. So cute is actually an ocean wolf. It's canines about three inches long. So these are the sorts of things. We have to fix the family driving Yellowstone, and they see a bear eating out of garbage bag in the side of the road, and they pull over their car and they roll down the window and they give their kid cracker to feed the bear, oh God. And they take a picture that when did we think that was okay? No. So these are the things that we gotta work on, so don't be fearless, but be smart, be predator smart, right? It's so cool to be able to see these animals, but we gotta give them their space and we have to remember their job, their predator. So so that we don't become part of the food chain long as we're smart, we should be able to do that. We did it before enter ancient history. We can do it again, but of course, being predator savvy isn't the same thing as being terrified of an extinct megatonne. And now. Watching shark week, just take it with a big, big fat, grain of salt, entertainment wise. Enjoy the entertainment. Be aware that the educational value may not quite be of the same Clark content. Thank you so much for debunking so much fun plan. You are amazing in your field. Thank you so much for doing this. Thank you. Yeah, this world. So remember if you have a stupid question, ask a smart people because seriously they love talking about it, and that's how they got smart. And just asking a question is smart as it is now to learn more about Dr lows work..

"Now this is something you typically want to do in private? No, really shakeout your rectum private. You'll see the way we know this works is in aquaria public aquaria where they have some of these sharks, they will have their sharks out during the day and at night, and they look great in the next morning. They come in sharks dead on the bottom of the tank. So the researchers, the course will take him out and they'll do any crops aim with find is that they're intestine. The lower part of the intestine has perversions and the internally hemorrhage, and nobody could figure out how this was happening will turns out at Waikiki aquarium. One of the grad students who's in charge of sweeping up the the foyer at night, saw this happen. So this black debris sharks around flush this thing out, it's but and Jack came over and bit. Oh my God, rude rude. So the great thing is they have the ability to completely flush their body, their their digest track out to get rid of all sorts of. Debris and parasites and all sorts of things. The bad thing is you don't want to do that and the presence of other predators on my God. This is like triple lock on the bathroom here. Exactly. Oh my God, that's so tragic. But who knew that whoever was sweeping the lobby was like you just figured out a whole new thing about the bowels of shark. Exactly. That's amazing. Both hail science and Justin. So wanna know essentially, how aggressive are sharks really. Not well, they're not any more than I would say. Most of the other animals that were with like all animals, they will protect themselves. Everybody has a personal space and when something starts getting your personal space, you have a breaking point where you will protect yourself, push somebody else away thwart. Somebody do whatever you have to do to protect that personal space. And we know sharks have that and they have a body language that they warn other animals that you're in my space and my predecessor Don Nelson's. It's really cool research on that today. Flick their tails like sassy. No, they arch their back. They drop their petro fins. You know, like when you chase a cat down an alley and you corner them and they arch their back in their first ends up and they bare their teeth, right? That process is known as an agonising display. Oh, it's like mad dogging someone that talking. It's like back off Jack. So we know that sharks exhibit that behavior that behavior is an agonise display because my my. Assessor would chase them around underwater sub to piss them off. And then he would get them to the point where they would break out of it and they would attack this up and take off, oh my gosh. Oh, he could actually induce that behavior and then get them to, you know, basically do what a cat would do. And then of course, when animals feed that's not aggressive, that's just feeding right. Gotta eat, you. Gotta eat your shark Saremi wants to know. I've seen videos recently of sharks, enjoying scratches. Do sharks have type of pleasure center in their brains. Do they like scratchy scratches? So they do have a lot of cheese, give them that. So there are a lot of echo parasites that you get on sharks and they have little claws and they move around the body and they probably it. So quite often, it's not uncommon to see shirts rub on the floor, or they'll rub on coral reefs of the rub on rocks trying to rub these things off. In fact, one of the reasons why we think some sharp jump is to try to dislodge those things like literally get off my back. Exactly. Neil Williams wants to know what's. The fish that tags along with sharks, like an annoying little brother. So the ones that I mean are those lamb pris what are they? So those were more so there's more and charge suckers and basically they're hitchhikers, but they're hitchhikers with purpose. So their goal is to not only catch a ride. So sharks, like Uber basically for them, but also. Uber eats. Right. So so has the shirks feeding. It's releasing little bits and pieces that they can actually snack on. The sounds like the fish version of being a stowaway on July tow truck, and I am into it. You know, they're kind of getting a ride and a meal same. Oh, that's so cute..

"They actually get carried in by storm surge and things like that. But I don't. I don't think I've ever heard of a swirling tornado of shark swirling around off the ocean from water waterspout that just doesn't happen. So I, I think those are the sorts of crazy things that every once in a while happen and you shake your head, like what really, even though the world can seem like a dystopia simulation right now, like politically like shark NATO's not going to happen? No, it's not. Gonna happen is crazy as it may be, but but the bottom line is actually, I think some of those movies are they're fun. I get it. They're fun. They're kind of a cool twist, and they're so unrealistic that it actually helps. It helps get people over the fear of sharks because they think that's just utterly ridiculous. So in a way the can't be ones like that actually help sharks, I. Do you have a favorite, shark movie. I'm sure you have several on favorite, shark movies. Oh my God. People give me DVD's all the time. I have stack. They're trying to try to give them away kicking. We'll actually jaws is one of my favorites is it really is well, for me, I was there. I grew up on Martha's Vineyard so I was there when they were filming it. Oh my God. Half my half. My kids, I went to school with her in the movie, have not holy shit. That's crazy. So for me, watching jaws is like a family reunion. So do you think that influenced at all your work with sharks, or how do you grapple with the fact that like that that movie is part of your childhood? And it's part of so many people's fear of sharks, how do you merge the two? Well, you know, maybe being there and seeing how is made, you know. So watching the sausage being made different Prussian of what you're eating. Right? So the idea there is, you know, we saw the things you know, lot of my friends school friends were in the movie. They were either extras and things like that. And you know, they saw them a chemical shark, and you know, sometimes it didn't work. And you know, when you see all those things, then you realize it's just a movie, right? So I think being there when that was happening, made it easier. But of course, when you watch the movie, this is the brilliance of Steven Spielberg, right? None of the things he wanted. Actually shoot that real underwater foot is they had a hard time getting and the mechanical shark rarely worked. So he made that movie where you actually only see the shark in only minutes of the movie. I didn't realize that watch it again. See how many times you actually see a shark, whether it be a mechanical in a real one. So it's your brain that's doing that. Your brain is building the monster, and that was the brilliant part that in the soundtrack. Yeah, is just amazing. Right? I mean, John Williams is amazing. So it creates that whole scene in your head. This feels kind of like a shark based stop hitting yourself, kind of a situation like the movies doing it, but also we're doing it to ourselves, but it's a move..

"So we're scratching heads going, what in the hell is that? So my students start looking through the literature and it turns out that Mike. Tori birds that fly will actually turn off their brain. And when they do that, they'll fly in a circle in one direction and then they'll turn off the other, have their brain influence on the opposite direction. Oh, my word. So physiologist believe that that's the way that these migratory birds which are warm bodied raise. They're spending a lot of energy, keeping their bodies warm are basically resting their brain, and they kind of go on autopilot like that. Are sharks doing the same thing then could be, oh, could be. And now when you say white sharks, is that a new term for great white sharks or white sharks little great, white sharks, really good question. We, we've gotten rid of the great part. So k. common common name now is white, shark. Okay, aka the great white because great white has such a cash a for like, watch out. It's a killer, right? You know, it's giving him such a big head. Dick's now. We're trying to bring him back to reality. There's such a prima Donna. We're just they're just going to be white sharks, such complicated coffee orders. And so we just call white sharks now. Okay. That's good to know. I wasn't sure if they were just like little ones. And then is there what is the biggest flimflam that you would like to debunk about sharks? If you could bust a myth, what would it be? Well, so there's there's actually a lot. Probably the biggest one is if you're in the white, shark it, it's going to attack you that just simply is bullshit. That's just one hundred. I mean, we have that millions of people in the water and southern California year round in an among sharks every single day, and nothing happens now they may not see the shark, but those shark should there. So this myth, that if you're in the water, the structure of the other one is if you're in the water and you're bleeding. Great example, and I get this every spring. If a woman has meant trading is safe for her to swim in the ocean. Yes, I got this question from patron in and Mars expert, Jennifer, booze, who was a guest on a previous episode. She said, Kennedy, sharks moment period in water or wet. Throb ably if it's very close. But the reality of is there a little kids out there on the beach that are all skinned up, right, right bleeding. So every little kid that goes to the beach skins, his knee or her knee on something is bleeding in the water. It's not like sharks picking them off every day. It's just not true. So people have this vision that a drop of blood since sharks into this craze. It's just not true. Okay. And the other examples I use man, I can't tell you how many hours I've spent putting hundreds of pounds of ground fishing blood in the water to try to attract sharks and get. Absolutely nothing. Right? You're like, you must be real chum master out there, like how much of your work involves hauling buckets of chum. Well, I used to do it a lot. I try to do it less now. Okay. So mainly because we're putting a lot of nutrients in the ocean that we don't need to use their better ways to attract sharks. So, but but the bottom line is, here's a situation where we're trying to attract them using the. Same things and we can't. Right. So this whole Palacio like I'm bleeding in the water, you know, sharks, you're gonna, you know, form a frenzy. It's just not true. Now, where were you? Do you remember the moment you heard about shark NATO to remember the actual moment and what your reaction was actually. After the first one came out, I never saw any of them after the first one came out. I got a call from a reporter who actually asked me, could that really happen? I mean, the answer's yes, sure. On the time, bring it. I mean, I was shocked and I was trying to term with her series. I think they were really, I think they were. And I was like, well, you know, there are cases during hurricanes and things like that that sharks do in inland..

"So I built my own acoustic transmitter that measured every single Tailby. So every time there tails wag back and forth, it would pretty ping underwater pain. And then I follow sharks around for forty eight hours in count how many times their tails repeating permit by doing that. Calculate how many calories burned per day. Oh my God. And so basically what I found out was these baby hammer heads were burning so many calories that they only had about a three week period to learn how to feed proficiently on their own where they would starve to death. Now, what is that about some shark. Where they have to stay moving all the time is that's that water continues pass their gills like that. That would be an evolutionary disadvantage, like to the max. Why is that still in place? So so I think a lot of that has to do with historically places the ocean. There's a lot of oxygen, the ocean. It's only recently that we're starting to see that change. So to keep water passing over their gills sharks have to swim around with their mouths open. Although some species just chill out and gulp in water. Now in more oxygen, rich regions of the ocean. Sharks can take more pitstops. They can kind of bull year out a little less. Their metabolic rates are much lower than that of us animals that constantly pay a price, keep our body warm, so their costs are lower. And that means that even though they're constantly moving, their costs are still substantially lower than ours. Does that mean that they're not sleeping or that they're moving while sleeping? Well, that's the big question. So there's good evidence that some of these sharks actually do kind of go que- hasn't even though they're moving. So you know, you think of those people that are restless sleepers while they're sleeping, they're rolling over. At one of those people. Probably get more exercise sleeping than I do during the day sometimes so, so it's not animals aren't moving. They are moving. It's just that they have to do that to breathe. But what we think is their brains are kind of slowing down and everything is slowing down. And we recently did a really cool experiment with these baby white shirts that were studying and we'd built a custom fit for them that clamps on their dorsal fin, and that fit bit measures every Tailby they make and also measures every motion they make. What we found was really cool. So to the sharks tracked, we're doing these thirty foot circles and they were swimming in a Bank. So they'd Bank swim thirty foot circle and that circuit was almost perfect circle, oh craze, and they would do that for twenty minutes. And then also they would stop and reverse and go back the other way. And they do that for twenty minutes and it stopped reversing back the other way and they would do that for four hours. Oh my God..

"Either in a shark cage or watching something like what's been the most? What's been the craziest memory you've had? I would say when my wife who's also biologists and I discovered that shirks pan, what's yes. Yeah, that was that was an accident. What? How do you. Are they out there? Like Marie, Claire magazine and like some jojoba oil. Well, actually I was studying hammer heads, red sharks, and studying how they swim. So I would go catch them these baby him rights, and I would put them in the shallow coral pond waters, very clear in the sands, very white, coral sand. And I would collect a bunch of hair heads, put them in this pond, and then I would fill them swimming. So I could measure how faster tales beat things like that. And then I told my wife, I said, look, I need to go get more shark, so I can increase my sample size. She said, let's go fishing. So we go out, we catch sharks, bring them. We put them in the pond and we're standing there together. Looking at sharks going, oh my God, they're like different animals kind of jokingly. We're like, maybe there's suntanning. So it just so happens that that summer, the grew the probably the world's experts on the effects of UV in the marine environment where at this marine lab we're working at. So we started bringing them out to this pond and saying, hey. We think the structure suntanning and they are like, what are you talking about? Are we animals known to son Tanner humans and couple weird like naked guinea-pigs. So alongside fellow marine biologist, Dr Gwen Goodman low who is also his wife PS adorable. He designed an experiment where they affixed little pieces of plastic onto the pectoral fins of hammer heads. Some of them blocked juvie some pieces of plastic blocked all the light. And then some that were clear and then they kept the shark is there for one, two, three months, kind of like summer camp. After that time we take the sharks out, remove the filters and they had Tamla, oh my God. That's so tacky and amazing. That's that must've boggled your mind. Well, yeah. So we actually got the cover of nature paper. Oh my God. I'm looking above me directly over my head on the wall was a framed magazine cover showing to sharks next to each other one looking like my legs in winter, and the other looking like wet asphalt. The headline read, suntan, hammer heads that sounds like a band that's gonna headline could shell one year. It should be. That's a great name. No, you actually, you got your PHD in zoology in Hawaii working with hammerhead sharks. Do you pick them because they are the weirdest things on the planet? Well, sort of, but also they're kind of like a high performance athlete. Okay. They really are as short SCO, they're, they're highly tuned. They can turn on a dime. You know, you've got this big Canard wing in the front that generates lift. So just in case you ever blackout and come to on the glossy stage of a game show and need to know what the broad head flap on a hammerhead shark is I got you covered. It's a sphere nid several from the Greek for hammer and head wing and not to hammer too many facts into your head. But it may act like a Canard wing Canard wing Kennard, which is a little four wing on a fighter jet that comes in front of the main wings to help it float and get lift. So. Now, you know that information incredibly powerful, but they're shark like like some of the groups that can never stop swimming. If they stopped swimming, they suffocate. Oh my God. So from the time they're born to the time they die. They're constantly swimming in order to breathe. So I was really interested in, well, what does that cost? What does it cost the shark God. Kahal ISM year never stopped. Never stopped. Never stopped. So I figured, okay, how am I gonna measure this? So I thought, well, what I'll do is build a big water treadmill for the sharks, and then I'll put them in this water treadmill. And then I'll make him swim at different speeds and I'll measure how much oxygen they take water. So if we know how much oxygen animal consumes, you know how many calories are pretty now. They need to make a Fitbit for them..

"So the bottom line is the ability to tech electric fields in water is easier right? Because the feels conduct better in that media than they do an air. So in water, they conduct even even better. So the idea there is you can have a fish and that fish is full of I on positive ion negative ions, and they create basically a biological battery. So every time the fish breeze, Wong, Wong field expanse. And of course, sharks is they swim through the water can detect that electric field when they're close. So they have to be maybe a meter to way to be able to detect that. So member those eyelid you're talking about? Yeah. So right before a shark goes into bite something. It closes its eyes. It rolls back its nicotine membrane to protect its, I. So how does it find prey? That's trying to escape it with its eyes closed what's using these electrodes sceptres to track its prey. So it's, you You know, know. it's kind of like being in a cave and you know, animals in a cave. Have you either poor vision or no? Is at all, and yet they're able to survive and enhance their their senses. In this case, have an extra sense. And that's that electro since sharks feeding with their eyes closed. Come on. So cute. It's like rummaging in a cupboard with the lights off, like, shoot. I know I shouldn't snack, but the bag marshmallows is omitting electrobi- that helps you find it. And so in light, say, I, I've heard of surfers wearing like shark bands that have electro magnetic field coming off of them. Is that is that hocus-pocus or no? No, no, some of does work, but the the bottom line is we found in there's been some research done that shows that shirks can bitch weight to it. So imagine it's like being a building, and then you go to a concert. You walk through these soundproof doors, and suddenly you're just nailed with a sound. So you're going to kind of be a little. You know, irritated by it, maybe disoriented by and things like that. So that's how we think those fields are working in those cases now. But if you have a shark that's highly motivated, it will tolerate that. Now we'll keep you safe some of the time. Sure. But here's the danger in Chuck repellents quite often when people feel like they have a Superman's cloak, something that keeps makes them invincible. They do riskier things than they would do if then if they had nothing at all. So this is where I have kind of a problem Capone's I think most cases of people disease good commonsense. They'll be just as fine than if they use one of these devices. Is there a good common sense tactic? If you were to say, if you had a friend who's like, I've started boogie boarding and surfing in cold waters where there may be shirks. Is there something that you can do smarter? Well, I think first of all, knowing that they're sharks in the water, right? So your your, your brain. Is taking information. You may look at the beach. You may look at the situation go, you know what? Just feels a little too creepy. I'm not gonna go today. Hey, what you just made a decision. However, you may do that every single day. You know, they're starts there and you go, I know they're here. I'm in the water. I'm trying not to do anything that would you know piss them off. And as long as I do that, I'm gonna. It's worth the risk. And I think that's how most of those water people feel these an intuition, I think. So had some Kamau. I know I've been in the water a couple times in the evening in particular by myself and those little hairs on the back of my next aren't going up and I'm going, okay, this could be Josh flashback, right? I can hear the music in my head or my hind brain is telling me something. And then I think I think I'm gonna get out of the water, really..

"To do a tiny imperceptible but dance or take us wake of your pepperidge. So what happens is literally within minutes of that injury that begins to pour into the wound and acts like a band aid. Bandit and the wound begins to heal outward. So I mean, you can literally cut shark into its body cavity, see what I'll get into its body Kathy, it's no sterile the, but they, but they have pores that lead into their body county. So their body cavity is not sterile. So wait, that's like having they're just getting seawater coming in and out and their body cavities like, it's all good. Don't worry about it. Oh, yeah. Also that makes me think of shark skin suit. And if you actually had a shark skin suit, there was just covered it. A layer of that would be not good for form aware, but. Fast, you could tear it offense. A couple minutes Dr. Crisslow right now singlehandedly making sharks lovable and math. Cool. He is thought magician. I just get so excited about math because there's an house in sharks. We what they're covered in Mathur teeth. You know their math problem, right? Because they never, they have never ending rows of teeth and the teeth keep falling out. And of course held a sharks live, we don't know. But now we're coming up with new techniques to figure out how long chicks live, like sleeper, sharks, like Greenland, sharks that have been aged four hundred seventy years old. How do they find out that? That's how old they are really cool from the dead ones. You can take their islands and then you can run a laser through that and you can measure when radioactive carbon was in the atmosphere from when we bump test back in the fifties. Oh my God. So becomes a little chrome eter little time keeper, and then you can count these bans the amount of car. Arben radioactive carbon to non-reactive carbon and use that as a chronometer go back, oh my God. So four hundred seven years old. That's the oldest vertebrate on the planet. That's really, that's Suber bananas right now, are they doing this on deceased sharks or can they do not. Okay. Yeah. So they do if they find a deed one. Okay. Let's check it out. Well, in the other thing is some of these sharks are caught in fisheries, right? So there are being caught. They've been used thirty dead Maysville. We'll take their is out and look at their lenses. And when when researchers started do that, they were like, whoa, how can this animal live to be that old will sleeper sharks there some found in the Alantic some found the Pacific some of 'em Artika live in very cold, deep water. Okay. What we know about things that live in cold, deep water is really cold really dark really old because everything slows down metabolism slows down. Everything slows down when you do that, you have the ability to live very long time because you. Just like slow, slow motion. They take forever to return Email. Exactly so, and there's even some evidence that they made out even reach maturity until they're one hundred twenty years old. Can you imagine having a teenage son for one hundred and twenty years of your life? Like picking up someone socks and dirty dishes for over a century or from the sharks perspective, key having zits until you're one hundred twenty and mystery Boehner's that you can't do anything about because even curfew not getting a driver's license until you're older than any human on the planet. Just wonder, sharks are pissed. Maybe some of them are just cranky and horny, and they're too young to get a job, but also oldest shit. But again, four hundred million years of evolution, right? So they've got something wired and they've passed that onto those lineages. So I think those are the things that the more I learn about them, the more I just go, wow, these amazing animals. I understand why people are so interested in them and then. What new thing can we figure out about them? And more importantly, how can they help us? How can sharks help us? Well, you know that that's the thing. You know, the more we learn about their immune system and their physiology, the more we learn that they've got some cool tricks that other animals don't. Yeah. Like a million revolving knife teeth. Their punk is a mother. And as we begin to understand those tricks, there's ways that we can use those tricks ourselves for developing new treatments for infections and cancers and all sorts of things..

"Have been a Renault n- monster who evaded pursuers was white as well, and just cruised the seas with nineteen harpoons hanging off of him like grass clippings on a sticky thi- didn't even notice now for a long time. People were like get bent whales and their populations declined. Okay. So around the set. Seventies when whale populations were really in the tank, they got the perfect PR makeover Wales went from being these demon evil animals to own my God. They're like humans, they have babies, they nurse them a little eyelashes intelligence social animals. And I thought if we can do it for Wales, why can't we do that for sharks? So I think that we're in that motion, we're heading in that direction, but it's really difficult when the a lot of the programming still pushes the fear factor. So discoveries, shark week who is in no way, sponsoring the show has been this cable mainstay for like thirty years. They have shows like bloodline the spun of Josh's and even a few years ago ransom docu fiction, aka fake news about the extinct mega Don, shark resurfacing and later they're like, oh, yeah, sorry, that was like not real. We thought, you know, NAT GO has also joined the blood. Fund with two weeks of shark fest, they have shows like shark kills own and my personal favorite, shark tress about the sharks near Alcatraz. Now, the point is Wales cute and smart. Sharks are scary. Steely-eyed, murderers. Their branded is like the sociopaths of the c-. Do you think that have sharks at eyelids, their whole story would be better. We'll do have island they do. Of course, some do some do. They're called little nicotine membranes. Full them up to protect their eyes. They just fold the wrong way. So maybe that's it. Maybe they looked to alien. But I think that's only part of it. You know, like dolphins, the cute little smile. You know if we can only get some sharks with cute little upturn jaws, maybe that would help. Don't say Justice, but I think part of it is being slowly demystified. People are starting to see sharks as being, you know, just like any other fish in the ocean. Although they have a very different role in many other fish question is shark of fish is, but about four hundred million years ago, they split off from bony fish and sharks instead of bone skeleton made of lightweight and springy cartilage. They also don't have swim bladders for buoyancy, but the used their fins kinda like airplane wings and they have these real fatty oily livers to keep them afloat, and they range in size from great white sharks more on that name later, which are like twenty feet in length to these eighty. Bitty eight, nine inch dwarf lantern, sharks, and Panama ghost catch sharks, which kind of both sound like the Indy characters. But the point is they're not all the stuff of sin. Matic nightmares. So it's getting people to think along those lines. And do you think this all started with the jaaz franchise or have people been kind of demonizing sharks for you know before the seventies? Well, actually I think that our perception of sharks and that fear goes way back. It goes back to the way humans portray all predators. So you know, imagine back in the early cave days and the men would go out and hunt some wild animals, and they would come back until these stories about these crazy vicious animals they saw. And of course the families are sitting around listening. These stories are going, wow, that's so scaring they're describing this animal and and the the reality of it is people. Listen when people talk about that because you your, your brain gives you a little squirt of happy juice when you're scared, happy, twos, aka adrenalin it gay, nor. Efren is a hormone that glee CT out from your adrenal glands during fighter flight. So for more on this and why fear is a very lucrative business, you can listen to the two part fear. Allah, she episode with Mary Poppins Roth, who is a life changer. Okay..

"So it's it's, it's really challenging, give an example. So here I am on a Discovery Channel show talking about why shark conservation. So important and sharks are vital to the ecosystem and why people need to protect them. And in the background here. It just doesn't match. Right. So becomes very frustrating a little conflicting for the public understand, wait a minute is about conservation or are we supposed to be scared? And so what made you love sharks much? What was the moment where you're like, sharks, I'm on your team. So you know, as a person who grew up fishing, loving to fish, and I caught thousands of fish. The first one I called for shook at I was like, this is different. There's something about this, this, this is very different from all the other fish catch and actually forced me to go the library. I was not a good student at school. Really. How old were you when you went and started looking into it? Probably about nine, nine or ten. And then I went to the library and I remember finding a book about sharks, trying to figure out what kinda short this was. And then I was looking through this book and I'm like, oh my God. There's all these cool things about these animals. They're like fish, but there are different type of fish, and there was just something about that that just. Suck me in. Is it crazy to you that you get to do this for a living? Like you're one of the leading shark experts in the world, like viewed drop your name and people like, oh, oh, dot Kristen? Yeah, he's legit like, is it crazy that you're that dude now? Yes. I have to pinch myself every day, but part of it is I am so lucky to have the job that I have. I really am. I absolutely love what I do, and it's not just about the sharks. It's about teaching other people about sharks and teaching other people about science and why we do it. So Dr lo grew up off the coast in New England in a family of working class. Honest, cool. Fisherman. He told me his favorite day was Wednesday because it was hamburger night. All other nights were seafood nights because that's just what his family did, and that's what they expected him to do to be a commercial fisherman or carpenter. But he really wanted to study marine biology and he became the first person his family to graduate college, getting a bachelor's in marine bio in Rhode Island, a man. Master's in biology in Long Beach, and then his PHD studying hammerhead sharks in Hawaii, which sounds like something only the guy in those does AKIs commercials to do, but it's a real life and he lived it hammerhead sharks in Hawaii. Okay. And so when it comes to shark outreach, what do you think is the most important thing that you do? Because that is one thing I feel like humanity can get behind. It's like if there is a villain, we can all be scared of pissed that it's going to be sharks, like we can't be mad at bees anymore. We're like also the breeze, but no one's like say the sharks, everyone's like, let's kill all of them. Well, I think it's getting better. Okay. It's exciting part. I think things are starting to change. It's just taking longer than I think many of us would have liked to see happen and my best example Wales. So one hundred fifty years ago if we walked down like San Pedro or we walk down New Bedford and you ask people what kind of animal they thought a will. Was they would say, horrible things Wales were there demons, their other horrible animals. They kill people Moby Dick, right. So you think of the image portrayed in Moby Dick. So if like me, you have not yet gotten around to reading Herman Melville's classic Moby Dick. It's about this WALE who was real angry, just a son of a bitch, and it was based on a real actual. I'll buy know wail by the name of mocha dick who, despite sounding like your friends barista ex-boyfriend was in fact a sperm whale and is said to.
