Laura Nelson’s project is called The Whydah Pirates Speak. We’ve all heard Whydah stories from a variety of angles. So Laura went after the stories of the lesser players, the crew members, the characters you don’t normally hear about to add something new to the discussion.
Really good talk. We get into some of those stories and talk about the craft of writing the side stories around the big story.
Plus comedy from Dave Callans and music from Ye Banished Privateers.
This is the U2 virtual reality video I spoke about during the show. It doesn’t look like much in the player below of course. You’ll need to watch it with VR goggles to get the whole experience.

The Yarmouth museum is now open and the Provincetown museum is now closed. The Yarmouth museum contains our “Real Pirates” exhibit that traveled with National Geographic. I am the former manager, Docent and Historian (retired) of Whydah Pirate Museum. I would be glad to happy to reply to any email inquiries about the TRUE and CORRECT history of the Whydah’s crew. There’s so much more than what the museum and most books reveal.
