Join comedian, musician, and pirate geek Phil Johnson as he explores the history and pop culture of pirates.  Interviews with leading historians, actors, artists, writers, musicians, treasure hunters, pirate festival organizers, and more. 
 
From Captain Charles Johnson’s “A General History of Pirates” to JM Barrie’s Captain Hook to Errol Flynn’s swashbuckling cinematic adventures to Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean juggernaut, pirates have captured the world’s imagination for hundreds of years.  
 
This show dives deep into the pirate community to talk to the people that bring the stories and history to vibrant life.  You’ll also find they use that history of criminals and cutthroats to make the world a better place through charity work and a sunny outlook on life.
 
Whether you’re an old salt with your own cutlass or a someone who just thinks Johnny Depp looks cool with a brain in his hair, the colorful characters in Under the Crossbones are sure to take you away from your day to day and drag you kicking and screaming out to sea.

Spent all day yesterday shopping for a new health insurance plan. The whole "lose a limb, get an extra share of loot" is way easier to navigate.

Today's question: What kind of elective pirate surgery needed to be added to the Articles?

Little bit of everything so far. I can see in my stats where most of the plays comes from (Apple by far), but I'm most interested in where my more communicative listeners (you guys) are. :)
