For Thanksgiving week here in the US, we’ve got a great talk about how American pirates affected the course of US history with Eric Jay Dolin, author of “Black Flags, Blue Waters”.
Some fascinating stuff here about American pirates taking down Muslim ships well before the Barbary wars and the combination of tactics that eventually eliminated the Golden Age of piracy.
Plus great writerly talk about research methods, book proposals, and feeling content or discontent with your current art form. And duck stamps. I had no idea about the duck stamps.
Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture. Your host Phil Johnson (comedian, musician, and pirate geek) interviews the most interesting people in the pirate subculture: Actors, Authors, Historians, Musicians, Artists, Festival Founders, Clothing and Prop Designers, Treasure Hunters, Archaeologists, and more.
