Six episodes in and we’re hooked!

Great story telling that interweaves a broad scope of world history with interesting threads back to pirates- We’re hooked!

On the outgoing tide

This started as a reminder riveting account of pirate lore, but lately I’ve been disappointed. After skipping past a prolonged acknowledgment of his pen named subscribers, there’s about 20 minutes of minutiae and almost zero tales of brawling, mayhem and naval battles, I’m longing for more excitement

A must listen podcast

I found this podcast fairly late so I had quite a few episodes to listen to.

Now I’m eagerly awaiting each new episode.

The presenter is a wonderful story teller.
