Mark Hanna is a professor at UC San Diego and the author of "Pirate Nests and the Rise of the British Empire 1570-1740". Yep, we're getting historical today.
We'll talk about how pirates needed allies on land to allow them to plunder as they did and how the big commercial companies tried to keep it from happening. Plus Puritans illegally minting coins? Militant Protestantism?
Fascinating stuff in this talk. You'll love it!
Plus comedy from Shane Morrison and a song called "Just One More Time" from Flash Crash and Thunder.
