Mike Kelly of Old New Orleans Rum

Mike Kelly is the head distiller at Old New Orleans Rum, America's longest running rum company since 1995.  Which doesn't seem like that long and Mike will tell us why that is.

We'll get into the process of making rum including how they make their own aging barrels.  Mike will also tell us about his rum adventures as a six year old.

And I'll tell you about the strangest compliment I received after a show on my recent Midwest tour.

We'll dig into Helen's career as a writer and what led her from writing historical fantasy to pirate tales.  And we talk a lot about the pros and cons of self-publishing vs working with a big publisher.

Allen Balogh Black Sails 1715

Allen Balogh is the author of the book "Black Sail 1715" about the wreck and plundering of the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet off the coast of Florida.  If you're wondering, it's both connected and not connected to the TV show Black Sails.  Mostly not.  But a little bit yes. :)

Allen gives us a great in depth view of the 1715 fleet's wreck and the pirate plundering that went on around it.  Plenty of names you'll recognize as this is smack in the middle of the Golden Age of Piracy.

We'll also learn about the present status of the wreck site and the amazing amount of plunder still down there.  

Allen's book is a fantastic historical fiction retelling of the experience that humanizes the dates and places to create a really alive historical experience.

Jim Blackbeard Laird

Jim Laird is a name I've been hearing around the pirate community since I started this show.  So I'm super happy to have him on the show today!

Jim has survived as Blackbeard longer than Blackbeard himself.  And he takes his Blackbeard shows to entertain the kiddies with fun and the adults with history and stories.  

We'll dig into how Jim stumbled onto his alter-ego and what it was about donning the rig that made him want to keep doing it.

Brian Fields of Pirates of Emerson

For extended show notes and more pirate goodies, visit www.UnderTheCrossbones.com  

Brian Fields had "the Halloween House" on his block as a kid.  It eventually grew to have a lot of pirate stuff.  It also eventually got too big for its britches and had to become a much larger, much scarier event that turned into Brian's full time gig.

Pirates of Emerson is now the premiere haunt in Northern California and includes 5 haunted attractions, music, performers, and all sorts of other ghoulish delights.

Todd Willis grew up as a pirate.  Or at least that's what his mom told him.  And he took it to heart.  Now he's a re-enactor and leader of the popular east coast pirate entertainment group The Loose Cannon Company.

We talk about how he got there, how he wrangles a disparate group of pirates into a cohesive whole, and how to raise your kids as responsible pirates when you're dressing them up as criminals.

Quest For Blackbeard author Baylus Brooks

Baylus Brooks has done a lot of new research into the life and career of Edward "Blackbeard" Teach and presents it in his new book "Quest For Blackbeard".  

As history's most famous pirate, Blackbeard has led many to dig into his life for details of his exploits.  Was he a bloodthirsty pirate or a successful businessman?  Outlaw or backed by land-based merchants?  

All that and more apparently.  And Baylus Brooks has some interesting information he's gleaned from his research.

Morgan Molthrop[ is a former Wall Street investment banker turned New Orleans expert and author.  His current book "Jean Lafitte's Pirate Code: 17 Strategies for Acquiring Until Fortune from America's first Laissez Fair Capitalist" is part history book, part business book.

We don't get to talk post-Golden Age stuff much on this show, so we have some fun digging into the War of 1812 and the Battle of New Orleans where Lafitte played a prominent part.

And we'll hear about Morgan's own trek back from the jungles of Wall St to his home in Louisiana and how he created his new life. 

Plus comedy from Steve Sabo.

Lee Arenberg has a great career as a character actor in many things.  But you'll most know him as Pintel from the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films.  Along with Mackenize Crook's Ragetti, they had some of the best comedic moments of the films and could also play creepy when needed.  ('Ello poppet...)

Lee tells us how the creepy little girl from The Ring helped get the first POTC film made the right way and other little bits of fun like which cartoon character Johnny Depp added into his Keith Richards to mold the character of Jack Sparrow.

We talk about how a simple 2 word audition led to 5 weeks of work on Pirates of the Caribbean.  It's a great lesson on saying yes to everything.  We'll also dig into how he went from being a jock to a dancer to an actor and made his way in the big business of LA and what he's up to now.

Ed "ET" Fox is a respected author who's combined his love of research and pirates into a half dozen fantastic pirate history books. He's also been able to bust some of the myths that you and I have been believing about pirates for years.  Some really interesting stuff in this interview.

When you look for his books, be sure to look for ET Fox as searches for Ed Fox will lead you to a way different kind of book that has nothing to do with pirates and could get you called into the HR office.

Plus comedy from Dash Kwiatkowski and the song "Johnny Jump Up" by The Bilge Pumps.

Their enthusiasm is infectious and if you don't feel the need to hang out with these after listening to this talk, you're dead inside. :)

Tom Butler heads up Green Feet Games where they're working on their new board game, The Pirate Republic.  And he's got some really interesting ideas about game design that I think you'll dig.  

He's also a Special Ops Combat Rescue Officer in his day job.  Heck of a day job.  So of course we can't let that go by without some discussion.  But we were able to neatly tie in to both his board game and the history of pirates.  Really intriguing stuff.

This talk goes in totally unexpected directions right off the bat.  Matt's favorite pirate musician will surprise you.  We'll talk about his deep (blood) relations to the Pirates of the Caribbean films, his background in high fashion (and the famous designer who told him to move back to California).

Plus you'll find out which piece of clothing he thinks needs to go, but just won't die.

These dudes are tons of fun and super high energy.  In between telling us about their extremely varied musical backgrounds, they'll break out in spontaneous song.

Coming to you from Chicago this week with an interview I recorded a couple weeks ago in Florida with Veta, Ashley, and Mike of Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise in Fort Myers.

The task of putting on a show for all age groups in the confines of a ship is an interesting one.  And we'll dig into what goes into their show, how they run it, and where their characters come from.

And a little pleading/ranting/complaining and a story about a man in a truck from me at the beginning.

Another episode of Blackbeard stories? Yes! But from a different angle. Courtney Page and Kim Kenyon are part of the Queen Anne's Revenge wreck project.  

They've got great stories about the wreck itself and their part in bringing all the cool stuff up to the surface for conservation.  Plus we'll get the origin stories of how they each came to be on the project. 

Plus comedy from Kristee Ono and a song called "Consciousness Express" from Diamond D and the Stargazers.

Michael Manerchia of Marcus Hook Preservartion Society

Happy Halloween!  I got this week's episode out a day early for you because Michael Manerchia, president of the Marcus Hook Preservation Society has some great ghost stories to give you a few Halloween shivers.

Marcus Hook, PA was a haven for pirates during the Golden Age - a secret party town where the pirates could blow off some steam.  It was also a regular hangout of Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet.  And...so the legend of the house goes... Blackbeard's mistress.

Michael has some really fascinating stories about the town of Marcus Hook and the houses that made him an accidental archaeologist. 

 

Plus comedy from Justin Hoff, who you can also see more of in the video below.  

Sorry, no music this week.  I put the word out for bands to send me stuff to play and didn't get a response.  And I'm on the road performing and didn't have time to chase them down.

Check out another bit from Justin Hoff below.  As you can see from the title, there's some "language" in it.

Erikka Innes of Pool Pirates

For extended show notes and more pirate goodies, visit www.UnderTheCrossbones.com  

 

Erikka Innes is a comedian and filmmaker.  A few years back she made a short film called "Pool Pirates" that I was lucky enough to be in.  

The film is about a crew of pirates that have lost their ship and take over a suburban backyard pool.  Very funny!

We talk a lot about the indie filmmaking process in this one and the learning curve of a first time filmmaker.  

Plus comedy from Erikka Innes herself and a great song from Barbar O' Rhum called "Coeur de l'Ocean".
