Michael Scott Moore was held captive by Somali pirates for 977. His new book, The Desert and The Sea, tells the story of what that was like.
In our talk we dig into what he did to keep his mental state stable through the ordeal, what it was like coming back, and what the aftermath of that type of experience is.
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.
