The Whydah is the first positively ID’d pirate ship to be found. It was Sam Bellamy’s ship that went down in 1717 in a huge storm off the coast of Cape Cod. Barry Clifford found the ship in 1984 and Chris Macort joined the team a few years later.
We go deep on conservation techniques for the different types of items brought back to the surface. And you’ll love hearing about the first time Chris held real pirate treasure in his hands. Really great interview with some mind-blowing news about his current project. You’re going to do dig this one.
Also on the show today, comedy from Mike Brody and Roem Baur’s new single “Oh Dear”.
