Shark researcher and advocate Dr. Chris Neff talks with host Dr. Chris Parsons about shark culling and the myth of the “rogue shark”, as well as the pressures on academics that take a stance advocating for their science.

They also talk about Dr. Neff’s high-profile paper on shark attacks, their disappointment with shark week and the awesome, but sadly often ignored, work being done by female shark researchers.

Finally, they talk about diversity and LGBT researchers, and what can be done to support this community in the environmental studies and sciences field.
