Following the recent incident of Australian surfer Mick Fanning in Jeffrey’s Bay punching a shark and surviving, today’s show is all about sharks.

We find out how Shark Spotters are keeping Cape Town’s beaches safe.
The KZN Sharks Board explains shark nets and why animals are dying in them.
And we hear from a diver who isn’t afraid of sharks and a scientist who studies their characters.

Stream Mondays 6-7pm at or tune into 88.1FM in Joburg.

The Science Inside is produced and presented by Paul McNally.
Producer: Elna Schütz
