Happy post-St. Patrick's Day! Anne Chambers is the world's leading expert on Ireland's Pirate Queen, Grace O'Malley.
We'll dig into how and why she started researching Grace's life. Especially what part Grace O'Malley plays in Irish culture and how Anne has helped them color in the lines. We also discuss why "pirate" may not be the most accurate descriptor for Grace O'Malley.
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.
