Recently Phil Johnson, host of the Under the Crossbones podcast, contacted me and noted that we’ve next year will mark the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s death in the Battle of Ocracoke Island. How time flies!
I talked to Johnson about Blackbeard, the Golden Age pirates, and how I researched my history of them, The Republic of Pirates: Being the True and Surprising Story of the Caribbean Pirates and the Man Who Brought Them Down. Our conversation has just posed online for your pirate listening pleasure.
Thanks to Phil for his interest and hope you all enjoy.
