Shark Attack Survivor Interview

[youtube width=”600px” height=”400px”][/youtube]


This year for Shark Week I interviewed Al Brenekka, a man who got his arm bitten off by a shark in the 1970’s. Like most of us probably would, he turned his interests towards killing sharks out of revenge, but then after a struggle with a hammerhead, he changed his mind and became a conservationist.

Al Brenekka is a fascinating man and all around badass. He was kind enough to let me take him out for a beer to hear his story.

      I love The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. And I think it will only gain more and more meaning to me in life as I approach a midlife crisis. Or if my friend is bitten in half by a shark.
