Ask environmental reporter Juliet Eilperinwhich is more dangerous – people or sharks – and she doesn't miss a beat. It's man who is the dangerous one. We kill 80 to 100 million sharks a year, and despite what you may have seen in "Jaws," we're just not on a shark's menu. As a top predator though, they play a crucial role in the health of the ocean. Tuesday, Juliet Eilperin joins Doug for a conversation about the hidden world of sharks she uncovers in her book "Demon Fish."
