Talk Like a Pirate Day is a Lie, and Other Piratey Things

Frances and Andrew sit down with Dr. Jamie Goodall, military historian, expert on golden age piracy, and author of the book Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay: From the Colonial Era to the Oyster Wars. We learn about our misconceptions of pirates, go over some lesser-known pirates, and talk about what elements and behaviors of pirates have remained to this day. Come for the bad pirate impressions, stay for the terrible pirate puns!
