Pirate Surgery Expert Mark "Mission" KehoeThis week we get super niche and talk about surgery and medical practices among the Golden Age pirates with Mark “Mission” Kehoe.  He’s a pirate surgery expert and reenactor with some great stories.

As Mark talks about, we mostly hear about amputations and trepanning.  But there’s a lot more to the medical practices of pirates and pirate surgery than you might think.  You’ll be amazed at what the #1 killer actually was.  Plus he’ll blow quite a few myths out of the water.

I learned a lot during this interview and I’ll be you will too.
