Sam Conniff is an entrepreneur and author of the book "Be More Pirate".  It's an examination of how pirates rewrote the rules of their time and weaponized storytelling to change the world around them.  And then, how we use those lessons in our own time to make our world better?

In this episode:

  • How Sam's business Livity worked with endangered kids to help them contribute to the way companies engage with them
  • How he used pirate publicity tactics to launch his book and is now moving into community building
  • How companies can rewrite their own rules and draft their own pirate codes
  • What might have happened if the pirate community in Nassau had been allowed to remain and develop?

Jess Dobie is co-owner of Switch Sails in Brisbane, Australia.  They specialize in sails for yachts and racing ships. They've also made sails for some of your favorite pirate films.

We'll find out about the cutting edge in modern sail-making and the growing number of people retiring on the sea instead of in a Winnebago.

We'll also catch up with author Jenai Marek (previously heard in ep 128) about her new book and her efforts to bring a pirate festival to Galveston, TX. 

You can sign Jenai's Galveston pirate fest petition here.

Marc Paquien is the creator of the board game "Treasure Island".  In the game, one player "hides" the treasure and the other players ask questions and make calculations to find it. 

Beyond that simple description, it's a game with all sorts of unique angles.  We talk about Marc's creative process when designing a new game including how he works from the idea of evoking a particular emotion with the game rather than just being concerned with game dynamics right away.

There's also some good stuff in here about surrounding yourself with people that will be a positive influence on you accomplishing things you want to do.

Daniel Bjorkbacka aka Joe Blackheart is the founder and banjo player of Sweden's Pat Razket.

 

We dig into the band's background as a party and wedding band, the idea to become pirates, and the moment that convinced them to have a great show but also work harder on their music.

And work harder, they have!  Their 2nd album Deeds and Debts is fantastic.  And you can get it right here: https://amzn.to/2GlsG3c

Ray Arnoult is the owner of Pirate Guitar Effects out of New Orleans/Wichita.  Guitars AND pirates?  Yeah!

We talk about growing up in New Orleans and how that affects a child's musical experiences.  We'll find out how Ray is making his company stand out in a the very crowded guitar effect market.  And we'll find out the flag of Republic of Bimini was pretty darn violent.  

Plenty of guitar talk too.  I've got you non-guitarists covered with a little edumacation at the top of the show so you can follow along. More info in the full show notes too.  Be sure to check out all the videos for sound samples of the stuff we're talking about.

And why am I in the closet this week?

Lydelle Joubert is from StableSeas.org, an organization that researches and tracks modern piracy around the world.  They act as an information resource for the maritime industry and create programs to combat piracy.

We'll find out the difference between piracy, terrorism, and robbery. And we'll dig into where the piracy hot spots are now.  And it's no Somalia! And we'll hear about what's being done to combat piracy in the worst zones.

Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture.  Your host Phil Johnson (comedian, musician, and pirate geek) interviews the most interesting people in the pirate subculture: Actors, Authors, Historians, Musicians, Artists, Festival Founders, Clothing and Prop Designers, Treasure Hunters, Archaeologists, and more.

This week we trek out to Sweden to talk to Erik Andersson of Stormfrun about spreading pirate fandom in their home country, the decisions about which language to sing in, the Swedish Pirate Armada and more!

Plus, I learn how to pronounce Stormfrun and then proceed to mispronounce it all over the place.

Happy 2019!  For this first episode of the year I thought I'd try a little experimental episode.  We're going to take a deep dive into 1926's The Black Pirate starring Douglas Fairbanks.

It's a great movie all by itself.  But digging into the film's background of breakthrough Technicolor use, inventive stunts, and movie magic makes the whole experience even more fun.

Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture.  Your host Phil Johnson (comedian, musician, and pirate geek) interviews the most interesting people in the pirate subculture: Actors, Authors, Historians, Musicians, Artists, Festival Founders, Clothing and Prop Designers, Treasure Hunters, Archaeologists, and more.

If you haven't seen the movie or just want to watch it again, go to https://youtu.be/IIvjH93MKRU

Here's the Myth Busters episode where they try the Blade Break and a bunch of other piratey things.  https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5vmu3k

Here's Reaching For The Moon, the 1930 Douglas Fairbanks talkie.  https://youtu.be/U5rTvWMx_Aw?t=3027

And here's the Key and Peele sketch where they do the pirate song that looks just like the meal scene in The Black Pirate.  https://youtu.be/MwUUDypEDNQ

Happy end of 2018!  We made it through and I hope you're taking some time to relax and appreciate the people around you.  I super appreciate you supporting the show all this year.

To celebrate the end of the year, this is a replay of 2018's most popular episode with Anne Chambers telling us all about Grace O'Malley.  And what a joy it was to talk with her!

We'll dig into how and why she started researching Grace's life.  Especially what part Grace O'Malley plays in Irish culture and how Anne has helped them color in the lines.   We also discuss why "pirate" may not be the most accurate descriptor for Grace O'Malley.

California has one good pirate story, that of Hipolito Bouchard.  And Michael Melzer is here to ruin that for us.  Just kidding!  His book "The Patriot Pirate" makes the case that Bouchard was a privateer more than pirate and was in it for the revolution more than the booty.

This is a really fun talk about a piece of history we don't know as much about.  And we get into Michael's motivations for writing about Hipolito Bouchard and his unique way of funding the book via Kickstarter.

Jasper Rouwhorst is one third of Craft Game Studio where he and his two partners have created Crooked Waters, a virtual reality pirate video game for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

We dig into the challenges of designing for virtual reality including dealing with motion sickness and how to keep to adapt to players doing things they didn't expect.  And we find out how they manage to keep the whole project going with just three people.

Charles Dean Beeker's official title is the Director of the Center of Underwater Science at the University of Indiana - Bloomington.  But that word salad doesn't even begin to tell you about his real passion.  

Unlike other underwater archaeologists we've talked to, Charle's wants to leave the stuff down there and make these shipwreck sites into visitable national historic places.  We talk about the whys of his plans and how they play out.

Among his many projects are Captain William Kidd's Quedagh Merchant and the Frolic, a Gold Rush-era cargo ship off the coast of California.

Great stories and a very different take than we've heard from others in this one.

Hurricane Robb and Krimson Kat of Pyrates of the Coast are on the show today!  We'll get some insight into the long long history of pirate fandom in the Seattle area and how they came to form their own crew.

There's also some great stuff about running a pirate crew as a business vs a volunteer model.  And the story of how Robb and Kat met will have you going "awwww!"

For Thanksgiving week here in the US, we've got a great talk about how American pirates affected the course of US history with Eric Jay Dolin, author of "Black Flags, Blue Waters".

Some fascinating stuff here about American pirates taking down Muslim ships well before the Barbary wars and the combination of tactics that eventually eliminated the Golden Age of piracy.

Plus great writerly talk about research methods, book proposals, and feeling content or discontent with your current art form.  And duck stamps.  I had no idea about the duck stamps.

Gareth Noble and Ferdinando Menezes run Pirate's Grog Rum.  We'll find out how they got the deal to distribute a small rum company from Roatan and how they're making it bigger than ever.

Always interesting to hear the methods behind a company's personal rum, even for teetotalers like me. :)

Plus we dig into stories of failed brakes, driving to Mongolia, and discovering you've had a pirate mindset all along.
