Excellent Pirate Podcast

The interviews are fun and informative. This is like a biography of sorts covering a wide variety. Anything from pirate actors to clothing companies to researchers and on. I look forward to the next podcast every week! And Phil IS hilarious! ❤️👏🏻

Colossal Waste of Time

If you like for the podcaster to waste the first third of his time telling you where he has performed lately or hearing him describe a boring plane flight, by all means, waste your precious time here. After that, there might be one or two minutes that are interesting, provided he has a good guest – but most are not. Please, I beg you, go for a walk, take a nap, or get a sandwich.
