Samebito - The Danger of Assumptions - EP 21

I'm on a yacht excursion this time (I guess I'm into boating or something) when I'm confronted by a new passenger..

In this week's episode I'll share the Japanese mythological tale around the samebito - aka sharkman, and we'll explore why it's human nature to judge things based on their appearances.
