SAN DIEGO, California -- The March 2008 episode of Shark Conspiracies is now available for free download. Shark Conspiracies explores shark sightings and attacks in a new way, by exposing the cover-ups and misinformation sometimes generated from tourism and conservation interests. Shark Conspiracies claims to be both “pro shark” and “pro truth.”

Podcast host Kevin Harris discusses the recent announcement by George Burgess, the keeper of the International Shark Attack File, that 2007 saw the lowest number of shark attack fatalities in almost 20 years. Host Kevin Harris exposes the absurdity of the ISAF figures, especially as they relate to fatal shark attacks worldwide.

It's ridiculous to go out of your way to downplay the threats facing sharks today.

Jason: If you listen to my podcast and view my site, you'll know that I do NOT downplay the threats facing sharks today. In fact, Shark Conspiracies is not about the threats facing sharks, it's about the threats facing humans from the tourism and conservation crowds who downplay shark attacks. I know that some species of shark are overfished, and it's a serious problem, but that is not what my podcast is about. Can you not understand that we are talking about 2 different subjects?

Isn't it a bit crazy to be diving in water that has been chummed with fish parts? Seems that in a feeding frenzy you would be considered that much more chum to a shark.
