Overview

Many associate the term 'shark' with the image of a cold, hungry monster. Think Jaws, or those countless exaggerated documentaries on the Discovery Channel. But while sharks may seem frightening at first glance, they are much more than the monstrous stereotype that's been foisted upon them.

Alie Ward is a writer and actor whose podcast Ologies covers a broad spectrum of scientific fields. In this episode, Ward interviews Dr. Chris Lowe, a marine biologist who has worked at California State University for over 20 years. Dr. Lowe's 'Shark Lab' provides students with an opportunity to study these fascinating creatures - and a place to keep his vintage shark-shaped submarine. Together, Ward and Dr. Lowe explore the most unfairly-represented animal in the sea, tackling common misconceptions about sharks, where they came from, and how they are beginning to change.

"Even though the world can seem like a dystopian simulation right now, like politically, Sharknado's not gonna happen."
