Dr E. Lee Spence is an underwater archaeologist and one of the first people to get a degree that work. He's found hundreds of shipwrecks since finding his first in 1959 at age 12 with homegrown dive gear.
His most famous discoveries are the Hunley and the Georgiana. We discuss both. And of course plenty of piratey goodness.
Don't forget to check out the bonus content where we go way off the beaten path and talk about who the real Rhett Butler is from Gone With The Wind.
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.
