FD77: Claire Willett, Death, and the Sasspants Cutiepie, Part 1 of 2
We were bound to come back to talking about the ending of Black Sails some day, and we are so happy to do so with our fabulous guest, writer Claire Willett. We talk about good deaths for female characters, our love of Max, the finale, and the Sasspants Cutiepie (guess which character that is)

FD 76: FeatherHam at Last: Chatting with Craig Jackson and Toby Schmitz
How did we wait so long to think of this one? We have now proven once and for all that Schmitz and Jackson is even more lovely than Rackham and Featherstone. Enjoy this more informal than usual episode.

I miss this show
I wish they’d come back and review every episode.
Almost as good as watching the show itself
I LOVE this podcast!! It’s amazing enough to listen to as I’m rewatching the show, which is saying something since the show is so good it just makes you want to plow through without stopping, even when you’re rewatching. I love how much Daphne and Liz adore the show, and they pick up nuances I’ve often missed which makes watching the show that much more rewarding. Kudos! 5/5
