Happy end of 2018! We made it through and I hope you're taking some time to relax and appreciate the people around you. I super appreciate you supporting the show all this year.
To celebrate the end of the year, this is a replay of 2018's most popular episode with Anne Chambers telling us all about Grace O'Malley. And what a joy it was to talk with her!
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.
