Joe Romeiro – Cinematographer for Shark Week – Our Fascination with Sharks and Why there is No Panda Week
It's not often you get the chance to chat with a person who spends his time face to face with some of the most feared predators on the planet, but that's exactly what Rocker Morning Show guest Joe Romeiro's day job is; camera man for Discovery Channel's famed Shark Week. We are enjoying the 32nd annual Shark Week now through August 16th, and Naturalist and award winning cinematographer, Romeiro, joined Mike McKelly and Stefani Bishop to talk about what drew him to studying sharks and the effects that climate change has had on our oceans.
Although the noble shark certainly deserves an annual weeks-long celebration, haven't we learned all there is to know about sharks? Isn't it time we turned our attention to something like, say, Otter Week? "The otter deserves it's own week," Romeiro joked. "But to speak on that, the Great White Shark is probably the most looked at shark in the world. We still don't know where that animal mates. We still don't know where that animal gives birth. We have suspicions, but we've never seen it."
