A podcast about the Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean, the real men and women that threatened the trade and stability of the Old World empires, the forces that led them to piracy and the myths and stories they inspired. Famous names like Captain Henry Morgan, Henry Avery, Charles Vane, Mary Reed, Anne Bonny, Black Bart Roberts, Ned Low, and Edward 'Blackbeard' Teach will rub elbows with Queens, Kings, Popes, rebellious monks, Caribbean Natives, African Slaves and notorious governors like Woodes Rogers. History, high seas adventure, myth and magic, voodoo, treachery, biography and freedom await.

Informative and enjoyable podcast. It's well-prepared and presented and I would say a must-listen if you're into history podcasts or pirates. Even history buffs will learn something.

Going to be one of the great ones!

Well done Matt. You’ve got a great voice and present very well. I subscribe to very many history podcasts and yours really stands out. The preludes and back story you give is really useful for understanding the times. For us history podcast buffs who listen to other period podcasts or else read books, we understand the context you are setting up. I know it’s tempting to use a little sound effect once in a while, but really it’s not necessary. Look at what Jamie Jeffers did to his podcast by messing with all those silly sound effects, really impacts credibility and leads to “unsubscribe.” Also instead of bonus tracks for paying members, why not try the Patreon model? It’s less off-putting and divisive and we actually do contribute!

Your story telling style is great, right up there next to Dan Carlin (Hardcore History) and Darryl Cooper (MartyrMade), please keep it up!


While the speaker isn't the insightful or clever person that could have made this podcast really something, the history is interesting (but what history isn't, especially given the subject).
