You’ve been asking for the Talk Like A Pirate Day guys and now here they are! Mark Summers and John Baur have done almost as much for pirates in popular culture in recent years as Johnny Depp has. And they kind of did it my accident and the behest of others.
Talk Like A Pirate Day happens every September 19th. In this interview I dig in with John and Mark on how the holiday started to happen and what they did to make it go as viral as it has. (Clue: As little as possible)
Plus we get into the TLAPD extended universe of sorts and what they’re working on now, including John’s new book “Chrissie Warren: Pirate Hunter”.
And this is the last episode with the crummy mic and head cold! Next week I’ll be back to sounding like my regular self.
Today’s show is sponsored by:
Naufragant – Get their new single, “The Black Corsair” from the upcoming album based on the classic pirate novel.
Plus comedy from Nick Hoffman and a song called “Black and White” by Demon In Me.
