We're talkin' ship! Ships in bottles that is. Daniel Siemens is a man from the landlocked state of Colorado keeping up the tradition of building ships in bottles. Definitely a niche hobby that deserves more people doing it.
Dan will give us some of the tricks of the trade including his most useful tool, the materials he uses, and of course, how he gets the darn thing in the bottle.
And if you're interested in trying it out yourself, Daniel gives lots of great resources for getting started.
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.
