Sharks are something that we’ve all grown up being wary of. Whenever we go to the beach we try to keep any eye out for a suspicious fin, and an ear out for the wail of the shark siren.

So, given that we’re all so cautious of sharks, isn’t it weird to know that there’s people out there who choose to get in the water with them? Paula Black is one of these people. She doesn’t just have a passing interest in sharks. She’s absolutely passionate, to the point where she travels the world purely to swim with some of the biggest (and toothiest) fish around.

Paula joined Mel and Jeziel in the studio to share her wealth of shark knowledge, and some amazing stories. To hear it all, check out the podcast below. In the meantime, here’s some of Paula’s incredible pics:
