Michael Scott Moore was held captive by Somali pirates for 977.  His new book, The Desert and The Sea, tells the story of what that was like.

In our talk we dig into what he did to keep his mental state stable through the ordeal, what it was like coming back, and what the aftermath of that type of experience is.

We're headed for North Africa this week to talk Barbary Pirates with Joshua London, author of Victory In Tripoli.

He'll take us through the basic timeline of these events that happened soon after the American Revolution and how the Barbary pirates forced America's hand into creating a navy.

We'll also talk about the various motivations behind writing a book on this subject, dealing with people reading stuff into it that may or may not be there... And kosher wine.  It all fits together.

Clay 'Talderoy' Clement is that pirate that all the west coast pirates know, even if they're not sure they've ever met him. The Pirates Charles even wrote a song about him.

He's also the owner of Studio City Tattoo, a pirate themed tattoo shop in Hollywood, and one of the organizers of Pirate Invasion Long Beach.

We'll dig into his pirate background to see how he got his sea legs and his business background as a restaurateur before entering the tattoo and piercing biz.  Plus Monty Python and bananas!

Daniel "Rover" Singer is one of the leaders of pirate vocal group Quartermaster.  He's also a former Disney Imagineer and current playwright and Lewis Carroll buff.

We dig into all that and more in this wide ranging discussion of his laundry list of careers most of us only dream of.  Yep, even Shakespeare comes up.

Plus we do a shorty with SR Staley about his new book "Calusa Spirits" and all the cool stuff they're doing around the release on Sept 19th.

Christy Alan is the Entertainment Director (and then some) for the Tybee Island Pirate Festival on Tybee Island, GA.  

We dig into what's happening at this year's fest Oct 4-7, 2018.  And we'll find out about Christy's performance background and how she got involved with the festival.

And there's some really great stuff here too about what an island community has to do to sustain business for most of the year.  It's a ton of work and they pull it off well.

Shanna Lovette is the leader and songwriter of Tea and Strumpets.  They're a relatively new group, but rising fast on the Pirate and Ren Faire scenes.

Somewhere between vocal group and musical theater, they've got a load of great original bawdy songs and choreography.  We dig into why Shanna got the group together and how demand for their show has picked up.

Heads up... This episode, by nature, has a little bawdy talk in it.  If you've got kids with you, maybe listen later.  Or be prepared to discuss. :)

I'm so excited to bring you this show today! Robert Kurson is the author of "Pirate Hunters" a great book about John Chatterton and John Mattera finding a real pirate ship wreck - The Golden Fleece.  His latest book, "Rocket Men" is about the Apollo 8 mission, NASA's first manned space flight to orbit the moon in 1968.

I've been trying to get Robert on the show for a couple years now and we finally made it happen.  We dig into all his writings about adventurers on water and in space and how he manages to make the stories feel so completely personal.

And we do a shorty talk with Rich Manic aka Captain Festus McBoyle about their new music video and the new type of show they're doing.

I was fortunate to catch Penny Opry's set at this year's Nor Cal Pirate Festival and I think you'll dig them too.  

We got together at Joan's place for a great talk about how they define this new project from their previous one Whiskey and Women.  And we dig into how European audiences have embraced them and what their new album "Alluvium" has to offer.  And even a sneak peak at the next album after that!

Bob Bledsoe is relatively new to the pirate fest scene and has a really funny act called Manis O'Tool and His Imperial Tibetan Yak.

In our talk we find out why he decided to get into the Ren Faire/Pirate scene and how he developed an act for Manis.  And we have some comedian nerd-out time discussing the differences between fest audiences and what we're used to in comedy clubs.

Michael LoPresti is one of the earliest Jack Sparrow impersonators and coordinator of the Rogues Armada, a worldwide consortium of pirate entertainers.

We dig into how the group came together and what everyone gets out of it.  And we dive into the Jack Sparrow biz and how it's changed since he got into it.  And, of course, some good hilarious  "road stories". :)

T.F. Wright, with is co-creator Volkenfox, is the author of a visual novel called The Pirate's Fate.  It's a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style pirate book for the modern age.

In our talk we discuss his strategies for keeping track of so many story lines at once, the changing nature of villains and how to keep them interesting, and why some people might be uncomfortable with anthropomorphised animals even though Disney and Warner Brothers have been using them for decades.

James Masciarelli is a former tech headhunter and nonfiction writer who's just released his first fiction novel, "Beyond Beauport" about a woman who discovers links to pirates in her family tree and goes hunting for a new lease on life because of it.

James tells us how he forged his own new lease on life and what he learned from the many high end CEOs in his previous work.  And we go deep into his writing and research process on all the wonderful locations in his new book.

The Shark Alley Hobos are a sea shanty pirate band from Northern California and on today's show we'll talk with guitarists and singers Che Prasad and John Howard.

We dig into the show that inspired them to turn from rock music to sea shanties and how they developed their sound from there.  We go deep into crowd work at gigs and how they decided to cover a Prince song.  And they also tell us about the event that inspired their latest single "A Hobo's Life For Me".

A week or so ago I saw a press release about a new privateer shipwreck being worked on in Bermuda.  And the head of the project, Bradley Roger of Eastern Carolina University's Maritime Studies Department, was nice enough to let me interrupt his vacation to tell you about it.

Some really interesting stuff here about how they decided why privateer vs pirate, how they can tell what country the ship belonged to, and how the early settlers of Bermuda benefited from the wreck.

And we dig into artifact conservation and dealing with various ownership issues too.  Fun and educational, this one!

We'll dig into how to Crimson Pirates sort of accidentally came to be.  And after Chris joined, how he went into spin-off mode with The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told.  

Lots of music, improv, and arts management talk in this one.  Super fun!

Dave Burgess taught some of the toughest classes imaginable and compiled his ideas into Teach Like A Pirate.  And now he's teaching others how to educate in a fun and experiential way.

Cheryl Jones is one of those interesting people that will surprise you with the challenges she's willing to take on.  And while many pirates went on the account after seeing Pirates of the Caribbean, Cheryl took the whole thing way farther.

Plenty of good pirate talk and how she extended that interest into the British Navy.  And of course, the funny story of how she and I originally connected. :)

Richard Rasner aka Damashi D'Gascoigne is the head of Clan Darksail out of Southern California.

We'll dig into the group's origins and the breadth of gigs they do from private parties to high end film work like "Master and Commander".  

Richard is also an expert on quartermasters, so we'll find out what that's all about.  And we talk a bit more about "The Pirate Captain Toledano" which they were also involved in.

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.

 

Be sure to also visit the MacKay Pirate Family's crowdfunding page to help them beat that nastiest enemy of all, cancer.  http://www.underthecrossbones.com/mackay

And you can now see Arnon Shorr's film "The Pirate Captain Toledano"!  This award winning film is well worth your $1 and 10 minutes.  https://amzn.to/2HENXDO
