It’s that time of year again!
Discovery‘s 31st Shark Week (no, that’s not a typo—Shark Week is the network’s longest running television event) officially returns July 28th until August 3rd, and it comes with more than 20 hours of groundbreaking shark-themed content. This year’s lineup features some of the world’s most respected marine biologists and science institutions taking on daring shark experiments in search of insight into the mysterious world of sharks.
We sat down with YouTube creator (and this year’s Shark Week ambassador), Dan Rodo. You can watch our interview in the video clip above.
