Capt James Hawk runs the Krewe of the Scarlett Fortuna, a nonprofit organization to promote reading among children. From book fairs and giveaways to presentations about pirates stories, these guys are using the power of pirates to get kids engaged in the world of books.
In this episode:
- Why reading is his pet cause
- The advice him mom gave him that has served him well his whole life
- Why switching from Medieval to pirates was literally cooler
- A story about a 4-year old that is way more together than any of us.
Plus, a gig that was like doing two shows at once and the death of Marcus Aurelius and the downfall of the Roman Empire.
Today’s show is sponsored by:
