Great series to listen to with your kids

My son and I have been listening to this series on our daily drive to school. It's a great way to introduce him to some of the history we've lived through since so many of the stories are from recent history.

This story was the only one I had never heard of. It was really interesting to hear how attitudes towards sharks have changed over the years. As an animal lover, my son was fascinated by both the story itself and and history of human beliefs about sharks.
