Episode 100! Thanks for sticking with the show!
Spencer Smilanick aka Captain Spoo Diggity is the lead vocalist of The Pirates Charles. So many good "where did that name come from" stories in this episode! Where the band name came from will have you on the floor. Pull your car over before that section so you don't hit anything.
We'll go deep into how Spencer has crafted his pirate persona and is able to tell deeply personal stories through his music, often without the audience even knowing it. And we'll chat some biz stuff too about what it's like being such a different kind of band in the Los Angeles market.
And, of course, we'll spin a track from their new album Invictus called "Fortress of Five Kings".
And to celebrate the 100th episode of Under The Crossbones, I invited a bunch of past guests to call in and update us on what they're doing now. Interviews are great, but they're just a snapshot in time. Fun to catch up with all the cool folks we've been listening to the last couple years.
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.
