On this episode of  Inquiry, we talk with writer and musician GARY BOHAN JR about his new book SHARKEY: WHEN SEA LIONS WERE STARS OF SHOW BUSINESS. Bohan’s great grandfather was one of the world’s greatest trainers of sea lions. He even opened Seal College in New York. His star pupil was Sharkey, a mischievous and very bright sea lion that became a star on Broadway, film, television, and even met the president. This is a wild and wonderful story of a time when seals were the stars of the day!
