this is kinda a bait and switch podcast. It's good history but not very not much about pirates. it's basically a 1400-1800 all things history podcast. most episodes have nothing to do with pirates.

Very interesting and informative. I had to unsubscribe, though, because the excessive overuse of “poignant pauses” began to drive me insane. Alas.

Description

A podcast about the Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean, the real men and women that threatened the trade and stability of the Old World empires, the forces that led them to piracy and the myths and stories they inspired. Famous names like Captain Henry Morgan, Henry Avery, Charles Vane, Mary Reed, Anne Bonny, Black Bart Roberts, Ned Low, and Edward 'Blackbeard' Teach will rub elbows with Queens, Kings, Popes, rebellious monks, Caribbean Natives, African Slaves and notorious governors like Woodes Rogers. History, high seas adventure, myth and magic, voodoo, treachery, biography and freedom await.
