Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to the 23rd episode of Everything Under The Sun, which this week is about OCEANS! We have three questions from Molly, Cooper and Lara, which are: How Much Water is in All the Oceans? How violently did Titanic shake when it hit the Iceberg? And What is the Deadliest Shark and why?

Find out how much of the Earth’s water is in the oceans and why we ought to really rename our planet, Ocean!

Then hear Phil Cauley, a crew member from Titanic Belfast talk about what happened on board when Titanic hit the iceberg, where it is now, and what little robot was the first to explore the Titanic on the ocean floor!

Thirdly, listen to James Maclaine, a fish curator at the Natural History Museum in London tell us all about sharks! You’ll discover where on earth people bit other people more than sharks bite people – rather a lot more! So there is no reason to be overly scared of most sharks, just stay away from a few as they might bite you only because they’re curious about you! Not because they’re mean.

PLUS! Exciting news, Everything Under The Sun is going to be a beautiful BOOK! The book is going to be called Everything Under The Sun – a year of curious questions and it’s going to be filled with all of your questions, 365 of them, one for each day of the year!

It’s coming out next Christmas and I’m busy writing it now, so please send in all of your wonderful questions, because then not only will I answer them on the podcast, you’ll get to see your question in a real life wonderful book, filled with questions, answers and fantastic drawings! A great present for all your friends and family and I hope it will be a book that you love.

Secondly, as I mentioned last week, EUTS is nominated for Best Family Podcast in the British Podcast Awards! I’m going to the awards ceremony in a few weeks time and it would be so great to win!

A huge thank you to Phil at the Titanic Belfast for telling us about the moment Titanic hit the iceberg and to James Maclaine for sharing his knowledge about why sharks! Of course, a big thanks to Lara, Cooper and Molly and for this week’s questions!
