The Blunt Report

"None of us know how many days or how many years we have. But we all have today". 

PT Hirschfield is an Oceanographer, Diver and Award-Winning Underwater Photographer whose work has been featured on National Geographic, The Dodo and BBC's Blue Planet. Check out her work on social media and at pinktankscuba.com. 

In today's episode of the podcast, PT Hirschfield discusses her many conservation projects as well as some of her knowledge and opinions on the issues facing our oceans today; such as shark-finning and over-fishing. Konner and PT also reflect on the importance of apex predators within our oceans and how sharks are perceived by people, as well as the potentially unjustified negative image that the media depicts of them. 

Finally, PT discusses the transformative relationship she has with the ocean, as she herself was diagnosed with terminal endometrial cancer and being underwater has been a vital source of healing and treatment for her. Not only that, she talks about how the oceans have taught her realities in nature's relationship with life and death and how this knowledge could be used by every one of us.
