Clay 'Talderoy' Clement is that pirate that all the west coast pirates know, even if they're not sure they've ever met him. The Pirates Charles even wrote a song about him.
He's also the owner of Studio City Tattoo, a pirate themed tattoo shop in Hollywood, and one of the organizers of Pirate Invasion Long Beach.
We'll dig into his pirate background to see how he got his sea legs and his business background as a restaurateur before entering the tattoo and piercing biz. Plus Monty Python and bananas!
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.
