fugyij ,

This podcast was such a perfect find!

I am not sure how I stumbled across this podcast, but this is the rare-to-find elasmobranch podcast I’ve been missing! I am a PhD student at JCU working on coastal stingrays, and it’s so great there is a podcast spreading our love of sharks and rays to a broader audience. I particularly liked the interview with Dr. Chin!
