Fresh update on "pirates" discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"They haven't really improved within a division that's incredibly competitive. So last winter, they go out, they send Corey Seeger. They send Marcus Simeon and I think that this is really an organization trying to restart the franchise and announcing to its fan base. Look, we got elite players last winner. We got elite players this winner come and watch his play. Does that make sense? And look, you're in Texas. You got to go big, you know? You got to bring in some big names to bring in the fans. What I'm curious, what are the next moves for the rangers? Historically, they've never run a payroll over 200 million. So are they going to push that up to that tax threshold of two 33? So that gives them room to make a couple other significant moves. I think they could use another starter. They could use an outfielder. I think Corey Seeger without the shift is going to have a monster year. There's some studies that have shown no hitter has been hurt more by the shift than Corey Seeger. So I think you'll have a big year. Marcus semi in after that's terrible start was very good that the final four months. So we'll see, but they got to add more to really make this move payoff. It makes sense to me that although, you know, my sense was that Grom might have been willing to put himself on a platter to go to the braves, that in the end they weren't the team that spent that kind of money, Dave, because they don't really have to. They've got plenty of pitching. They're an excellent team. There are other ways to go for them other than to lay out an investment on a guy who's really injury prone. Yeah, the braves have more restraint than any other organization and they can do it because they've extended all their homegrown products or the extended metals. And they've never signed a free agent to a $100 million deal. They've given those contracts to their own players, but never do a free agent. So I don't think ever in the cards for the braves to give de Grom a 100 million plus contract. All right, let's talk about some of the other news that has been made in terms of guys moving from one team to another. Cold and long gets traded by the Milwaukee Brewers to the Seattle Mariners, the Mariners we know we're looking for another left handed hitter. They were looking for a second baseman. And Colton Wong is one of those guys. I think the perception is with the rules against defensive shifts, it only increases his value day because he's been one of the best second baseman in baseball. Yeah, he and he's added some power to his game, doesn't strike out. Just kind of a nice, solid all around player. I know his defensive metrics actually did drop off a little bit last year though. I guess I've read. He played through some leg injuries, but he's been at two time gold Glover in the past. Exactly what Seattle needed. Jesse winker from reports out of Seattle and kind of worn out his welcome there. But he had a great 2021 with the red, so the brewers are hoping for a bounce back from him. So to me, kind of a trade that makes sense for both teams. We get word over the weekend that Brian Reynolds, the center Fielder from the Pittsburgh pirates for the Pittsburgh pirates, his requested a trade. I spoke with some agents who thought this is kind of silly. They're feeling was and he turned down a big offer during earlier in this off season and he's requested tradeoff. I don't really get the point of requesting a trader letting letting that get out there. What do you think? Yeah, you know, look, this happens all the time in the NBA, right? Par for the course, we don't see this and MLB and no offense to Brian Reynolds, nice player. He was an all star in 2021 when he had his career year, but is he a good enough player to demand a trade buster? I don't know. It's a little bit of a weird situation. We all get what's going on in Pittsburgh, you know, he's got three more years of team control, so I don't know if you're the pirates, do you want this guy on your team? You know, he's a valuable player. You'll bring back a lot in a trade. If you want an unhappy player, I guess that's what Reynolds is hoping for that the pirates will just say, all right, we don't want you anymore if you're going to act like that. But if I know Ben Charrington, who's a general manager, the pirates, and I know that, you know, this world of modern analytics that we're in, the front office is typically we'll hear a request like that and be like, yeah, okay, whatever. Yeah. We don't care what you want, what you don't want. Ultimately, it comes down to whether or not someone's willing to give the pirates what they're going to ask for. Which is a lot, given the, you know, the heightened need now for guys who can hit from the left side of the plate is Reynolds Ken and given the need for a center Fielder. I think the pirates are going to go, yeah, thanks for the input, we'll just see what kind of offer the, you know, the Toronto Blue Jays or some other team makes to us. Yeah, and I think don't you think the first domino here is Brandon nimmo signs. No doubt. He's the only center Fielder out there in free agency. So once he goes, then the interest in the demand for Reynolds will suddenly get a lot higher. So I think this will have to take a little time to play out. Yeah, I know the Yankees have talked about him in the past as well and maybe baron judge leaves. And the Yankees are left to pivot and do some other things. That potentially could be a way to go. You could build a build a an incredible shutdown outfield defense, which is in keeping with the Yankees direction recently.

Bill Federer Shares the Story of Squanto

"One of the stories that we have to include is squanto. And if I have a few minutes, I'd be happy to share that. Continue. So the pilgrims were religious, but there were other groups that weren't and they were pirates. So Spain had a monopoly on the new world for at least a century, and they had gold from Inca Peru and portobello Panama and they take it to Cuba and ship it and these Dutch and French and English pirates would raid the gold, but they would also sail up the coast of North America. Lure unsuspecting Indians on board, lock them below deck, take them over to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. So one of the Indians that was captured was squanto and the story is he was purchased by some monks in Spain who gave him his freedom. He hitchhikes his way across Europe, gets to England. He's there for a dozen years working, learning the language and the family finds some business that takes him to Newfoundland, right? A fishing type outfit. And then he gets the boat to drop him off at Plymouth, Massachusetts, only to find his whole tribe is dead. They were wiped out by a plague, William Bradford writes that three years earlier, a French ship was shipwrecked off the case, the coast of Cape Cod. Sailors got ashore, Indians never left watching them and bogging them, till they got the advantage killed them all, but three or four maybe sport with them worse than slaves. Anyway, one of those French men must have had an illness and the Indians didn't have immunity and it wipes out the tribe. So sort of in a reverse sense had squanto not been captured in kidnapped. He most certainly would have died. But squanto is living with the neighboring wampanoag tribe and then that fall is when the pilgrims show up. Half of the pilgrims die the first winner. They wouldn't have survived another year. Spring of 1621, walking into their camp is squanto. And you can just picture the conversation. I mean, he's in his loincloth and he goes up and he goes, oh yeah, you guys from London, I used to live there. You know, oh yeah, the pump down on war street or St. Paul's chapel. He goes, oh, yeah, yeah, I know that place. And then he says, oh, this place here, I grew up here. I know this place like the back of my hand over that hill is a spring. And William Bradford says he taught him how to catch fish. He said, you know, that they weren't successful, but he says, don't use salmon. They spawn this river. It's going to be packed. And then he taught him how to plant corn. They said, we tried it. He goes, no, you got to dig a hole, put some fish in, then put the kernel of corn and cover it up. The fish decompose fertilizes the soil. You have a nice harvest. Bottom how to take the corn and put it in a pot, shake it and make popcorn, right? And then he taught him how to go down to the riverbank squeegee in the mud and catch eels and clams and lobsters and then how to catch beaver skins. It took 40 years worth of beaver skins to pay off their debt for the boat ride,

"pirates" Discussed on Based On a True Story

"Another concept that we see in on stranger tides. I know we kind of talked about this a little bit before, but it's the concept of the privateer. And one of the lines of dialog point out specifically, I think, is Jack's barrow is talking to Hector barbossa. And he's calling him a pirate. He calls Barbosa pirate and Barbosa just replies pirate, nay, privateer. Can you clarify the difference between those and did people bounce between being a pirate and a privateer and back and forth and it called the sounds like it's either one? Yeah, so a privateer is somebody, as I mentioned before, who've been given permission by their government and time of war to attack enemy shipping. So you have these vast oceans, the government only has a few Royal Navy vessels and how you ever going to stop the enemy attack them, defend your colonies and raid their shipping all at once. Absolutely impossible. So what do you do? You go to the private sector, and they would make them a deal. Hey, you have permission to go attack any friendships you want or Spanish ships whoever you're with. And you can keep a lot of the treasure and you bring me the sovereign part of it. And as a tax, and everybody wins. And it was very lucrative. So tons of people would get involved in privateering and you'd hire capable people to be your privateering captain and privateering crews. They're all in it for the money. So that had been that was a normal thing, and many people were engaged in it. And if you were really good privateer, you'd be celebrated. You could get a knighthood like sir Henry Morgan did. Captain Kidd was a privateer initially before he upset and then salted rich and powerful people in the East India Company and got himself declared a pirate. So I mean, privateers were entirely respectable people within their own societies. They might appear to be pirates from the other side. Pirates by contrast hadn't gotten permission to do what they were doing from anybody. And they were offering operating in times of peace. And they were often attacking vessels from their own nation. So they were just all out criminals from the perspective of their government. And if they made it home, they wouldn't be knighted, they'd be hanged. So that was the difference between them. However, many, many of the pirates. Remember, I said that this outbreak had taken place in the aftermath of a colonial war, the war of Spanish Succession. And in addition to all of the push factors, all the ways that sailors were being exploited, also many of them had been privateers during that war. They had all of the skills, and they were making lots of money, raiding Spanish ships, and all of a sudden the war ends. And your privateering permission, letters Mark, were taken away from you. So you've got your ship and you got your gun and you got your cannon and suddenly you can't go attack the Spanish anymore. So, you know, the only way you could do it was to go be a pirate. If you wanted to keep doing what you've been doing the whole time. So many people who had been privateers became pirates. Usually that was a one way trip, right? You couldn't, once you're a pirate, you're in trouble with everybody. You can't just go back to being a privateer. Except this particular outbreak in Nassau that I write about in republic of pirates got so bad it was threatening all of the empires, including the English empire, and so the king ends up offering a pardon. He has a divide and conquer strategy, so the pirates could take apart from the king and be absolved for all of their piracies up until the date of the pardon and keep their treasure and could go back to normal life and many of them, when the next war came out, became privateers again. So in the instance of these particular pirates, yeah, people were privateers became pirates and then became privateers again. Wow. It sounds like I'm basically doing the exact same thing. It's just a matter of what they're called and whether or not the law is after them. Exactly. And whether or not you're attacking your own country's vessels. Those are pretty much the only differences. Then the East India trading company, then you mentioned them having almost 200,000 soldiers and soldiers. Would their navy with their ships be considered privateers, would they be along that line? Because they're employed by the East India Company, would they be something different? There are armed merchantmen. So their merchant vessels with exclusive monopoly to their part of the world, the Indian and all that. And their arm to defend themselves against pirates or the enemy or anybody trying to mess with them. So they'd have these heavily armed vessels, but they weren't combat vessels per se. So they wouldn't be involved in defensive and because the real value of them is the goods they're transporting back to London. Their value to the empire, the value to the sovereign and everybody else is that those goods get to and fro. And so on the ship to defend themselves. Okay, as opposed to the privateers, which are more seeking out Spanish or the enemy. So we're at some privateers of various nations might be trying to attack the East India ships, but their job was to repel both categories of vessels. Okay. Okay. One of the pirates that we meet for the first time in the movie on stranger tides is blackbeard and his, he is the captain of a ship called Queen Anne's revenge. I think everybody knows that blackbeard was a real pirate, but how well did the series do depicting him? Well, I mean, blackbeard was a real pirate, and Queen Anne's revenge was his ultimate, it's his greatest flagship that he had for a time and scared everybody and charged around with this large frigate sized vessel that had been a slave ship. A lot of the pirates wanted to attack slave ships because they made great pirate ships. They were fast, you could heavily arm them, they could carry a lot of cargo, perishable cargo, and that people died, and they treated them terribly, but they had to move pretty quickly. And those are all characteristics that worked well as pirate ships. And the Queen Anne's revenge had been a French pirate ship. So that much was true their depiction of blackbeard beyond that is not really anchored much to reality. I mean, the parallels are that the reason that blackbeard became so famous is he intentionally cultivated a terrifying appearance in reputation. He would light fuses in his beard, so smoke would be flying off them and make him look like sort of like a devil like figure standing on the deck as he's approaching your ship and demanding you surrender and he carried he and his men would have grenades and cutlasses and be wearing the Mad Max movie, all of the clothes of the rich passengers that they previously captured and just they just looked as scary as you might possibly imagine. That was the whole point because blackbeard wanted the ships to surrender without firing a shot. No risk to yourself, no risk that a cannonball accidentally takes out your main master damages your ship, but more importantly, what did they want? They wanted the other ship, its cargo, and the source of most voluntary pirate recruits were the downtrodden sailors on the vessels they captured. You know, typically a quarter or a third of the sailors on a vessel they would capture would voluntarily want to join the pirates, right? You're being exploited, fed, not being paid your wages, fed weaving bred and life's pretty miserable and these pirates capture your ship, and they're all breaking out in Madeira and soon to be having a good old time. A lot of them will say, he'll take me with you, right? So you don't want to hurt any of the crew either. So blackbeard had a really, really smart strategy, and it paid off. I mean, he was thought of as the most terrifying of all pirates for all these reasons. And everyone was surrendering without firing a shot. But if you read all of the documents of all the ships and stuff that blackbeard captured, all the documents, by the way, almost all the testimony is from his victims, right? They're not sympathetic to him. And yet, there's not a single instance anywhere. They are of him killing or harming anybody prior to his final fatal battle with a real navy in 1718. So it works. So in that sense, yeah, he was everyone was scared of him, and that was exactly the plan. He was a

"History. Today we're going to be looking at Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean to see how well that whole franchise got the depiction of real pirates from history. Now, there are 5 different pirates movies and they kick off with the curse of the black pearl. That was released in 2003. And it set the tone of the entire franchise as it tells the tale of captain Jack sparrow trying to reclaim his ship, the black pearl, from his former first mate, Hector barbossa. Along the way, sparrow enlists the help of will Turner and his love interest in the film, Elizabeth Swann, to release the pirates from the curse of some Aztec gold that they stole. Then in 2006, the second movie came out, dead man's chest, and that movie lord cutler Beckett of the East India trading company becomes the main bad guy along with the pirate turned sea creature, Davy Jones. Jack sparrow must steal the chest with Davy Jones heart inside to escape the fate of having to serve 100 years on Jones ship, a deal that he apparently made before the timeline of the movie. The third pirates movie in the franchise that ends the initial trilogy was released in 2007, and that is at world's end. In this movie, we see many characters return, captain Jack sparrow, will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, of course. But there's also David Jones, Hector barbossa, lord cutler Beckett, and a range of familiar pirates and characters returning. Four years later, the pirates franchise returned with the first of the stand-alone sequels with 2011s on stranger tides. Since this isn't really part of the initial trilogy, it doesn't include all of the same characters. Instead, this movie focuses mostly on captain Jack sparrow as he searches for the fountain of youth. Although, along the way, he comes across a new pirate with a familiar name. Blackbeard. In 2017, another stand-alone sequel was released called dead men tell no tales. And that movie captain Jack sparrow is trying to get out of another curse. This time he's looking for the trident of Poseidon to defeat an old enemy, captain Armando Salazar, who is trying to kill sparrow. So that's a very brief overview of all 5 pirates movies that we will be chatting about today. Oh, and I should probably mention those are all of the pirate movies as of this recording. There have been plenty of rumors about more movies being made, but there's also been some doubt as Johnny Depp has mentioned. He's not really interested in reprising his captain Jack sparrow character. I guess we'll see what the future holds for the franchise. But for today, I'm excited to chat about the historical accuracy of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise with Colin woodard. Colin was recently on the hit docudrama from Netflix called the lost pirate kingdom. And he is the author of a fantastic book called the republic of pirates. It's a book that inspired the TV series crossbones, as well as helping the game developers behind Assassin's Creed four black flag. Before we bring Colin on the line, let's set up our game. Two truths and a lie. If you're new to the show, here's how it works. I'm about to say three things, two of them are true, that means one is an all out lie. Are you ready? Okay, here they are. Number one, the timeline in history that inspired the pirates of fiction took place in the early 1600s. Number two, pirate captains were elected by a show of hands from the crew. Number three, up until his final fatal battle, there's no proof of blackbeard killing anyone. Got him? Okay, now he's here listening to our story today, your challenge is to find the two facts somewhere throughout the episode. And of course, we're doing a recap at the end of the episode to see how well you did. All right, now it's time to connect with Colin woodard about the historical accuracy of Pirates of the Caribbean. The first movie in the franchise is the curse of the black pearl and it sets up one of the primary locations where a lot of the stories really throughout the entire franchise take place. Port royal was port royal, a real place, port royal was an important and rather body port in Jamaica. It was for a long time Jamaica's primary port and therefore in the whole English and later British Americas. That was the primary hub for their Caribbean operations. The empire, Jamaica, that was sort of the headquarters of the British fleet protecting their possessions in the West Indies and the largest presence for the English and British there. However, where Disney has kind of taken a flight of fancy or taking advantage of flexible narratives in television. Port royal had been largely destroyed by the time the pirate outbreak came out. There was a terror, it was located on a Peninsula, jutting out into a harbor behind what was Kingston, which became the real fort for the Jamaica, and there was a terrible earthquake that essentially caused the sandy structure of the Peninsula to collapse along with like half the town drowning many people and pretty much port royal never recovered from that. And that would have occurred when the pirates who make up the real golden age pirate boom from which all of our mythology and pop cultural references to Pirates of the Caribbean comes from. They would have been children at that time when fort royal was destroyed. But it was sort of a legendary place not exactly of pirates, but of the Buccaneer generation who preceded them, who weren't in general pirates in the sense that they were outlaws from the perspective of their own governments. So the real piracy outbreak took place somewhere else, not in port royal. Okay, well, you mentioned the time there. I want to ask you about that because the movie doesn't really let us know what time period is. This is taking place. Would have been the 1600, 1700s, one word that the pirates, the pirate outbreak that inspired all the pirates of fiction and eventually the Pirates of the Caribbean movies took place between 1714 and 1719 and the Caribbean and then many of the pirates who survived moved on into Africa and especially the Indian Ocean for sort of an epilogue, time period, but the great pirate outbreak was sort of the early part of the 1700s and was hub not at fort royal, but around Nassau and The Bahamas, which was their pirates nest. And there was sort of a key book after most of the pirates had been captured, but some of them were still alive, that was published in 1724 called the general history of the pirates, spelled with a Y, and it was that book written by an author using a pseudonym who was not Daniel defoe, but rather somebody else. Was the book that really, it became a bestseller at the time in 1724 on both sides of the Atlantic. And it set up all of the received myth and stories about the pirates, which become the grist for all of your pirate legends and pirate pop culture. That was the book that Robert Louis Stevenson would later find when he wrote treasure island and kidnapped and thus ended up inspiring in a secondary sense, the early Disney films, the black and whites of blackbeard and others, and then eventually the more recent Pirates

The Florida Governor's Judicial Selection Process

"Governor, you've made some appointments to the Florida Supreme Court. All of us remember the year 2000 when I called it the yoho court, the pirates. Who do you look for when you put justices on the Florida Supreme Court? Well, you're exactly right on the 2000 court. And that court really dominated Florida politics for 25 years. And so when I became governor, it was a four three liberal majority. But fortunately, three of the four liberals reach mandatory retirement age. So I was able to backfill them with conservative justices. And so we now have a 6.1 conservative majority. I've actually made 5 appointments because actually 6 appointments now because two of my appointments got fleeted up to the 11th circuit Court of Appeals under president Donald Trump. So what I do is I convene a group of people that I trust some people in Florida, some people outside of the state who you would know who I'm not going to say because it was a private, but and then they put these candidates through the ringer. So they will go into a room and you'll have 6 or 7 pretty big legal conservative heavyweights and they have to answer questions. And I'm not there for that, but then I get debriefed by them and then I'll sit and do interviews with each individual candidate but basically what we're looking for. Do you understand the proper role the court and the constitutional system exercise neither judgment but not will? Are you willing to apply the law even when it's difficult? And so I'm somebody I disagree with obviously judicial activism. But sometimes you are called upon to enforce the constitution in ways that will be consequential. And

"I'm Tom Morton, and welcome to real pirates. The show that dives deep into the true story behind the world's most notorious Buccaneers. Join us as we set sail under the black flag, alongside such legendary figures as blackbeard, Henry Morgan, Charles vane and Bonnie, and Mary Reed, will reveal how these marauding Mariners rose to dominate the 7 seas, the terror tactics they employed to overpower their prey, and what life was really like aboard their ships. Their reputations of swollen to legendary proportions, making it hard to separate fact from fiction. Who were they? Terrorists, or freedom fighters. Coal blooded killers, or heroic underdogs. It turns out, the truth is far stranger than fiction. Blackbeard's last stand is seen as one of the greatest piratical battles in history. For many historians, it signals the end of the height of the golden age of piracy. The period between 1714 and 1726, when pirates terrorized the seas, crippling colonies, and bringing empires to their knees. But how did pirates become a major threat, not only to the British Empire? But a global trade as a whole striking fear into the hearts of every Mariner across the 7 seas, and cementing their names in history books for centuries to come. What it turns out that the bloody history of 18th century piracy. Begins with peace. It's 1713. A salty breeze blows off the aquamarine waters surrounding port royal, Jamaica. Boats lazily bomb on their moorings as seagulls cry overhead. Gently cured palm trees sway on the pristine white sand beach. Near the docks, the smell of fine goods rises in the hot Caribbean sun, emanating from warehouses that until recently stood empty. Now the air is once again filled with the thick scent of exotic spices. Sweet wine preserved mates. And sugar. It's a tranquil setting. But against this idyllic backdrop, a scene of unrest is erupting on the docks. A mob of half starved seamen have surrounded a merchant ship. Desperately, they beg the captain to sign on to the voyage wherever it's headed, even on half pay. As a few lucky manner chosen, fights break out, and some Mariners even try to jump aboard as the ship begins pulling away from the dock. It's been months since any of these seamen have worked. Many of them have turned to begging in a surviving on scraps. Others are quickly burning through their meager savings by drowning their sorrows at local taverns. It's hard to believe, looking out onto this scene of desperation, but until a few months ago. Port royal was a sailor's Paradise. You see for the past ten years, these sailors were vital assets in a geopolitical struggle. A battle for the future of the western world. The war of Spanish Succession. But all that changed with the signing of a single document in April of 1713. The peace of Utrecht. The war of Succession was in simple terms a dispute between monarchs of the who should succeed Charles the second of Spain. But in reality, it was a struggle between European empires for global supremacy. After a decade of brutal conflict, national finances lie in ruin. The treaty of Utrecht means a central transatlantic trade can now be reestablished between Britain, France, and Spain, with the Caribbean as the epicenter. The war has left Britain the dominant force in the West Indies. Spain has been forced to concede the asiento. Permission for Britain to supply cheap labor to the Americas. In the form of enslaved humans from West Africa. This barbaric trade aside from being a valuable market for Britain also provided quite literally the lifeblood of her colonial plantation economies in the Caribbean. Especially in the cultivation of white gold. Doctor Rebecca Simon is a historian and author of why we love pirates, the hunt for captain Kidd and how he changed piracy forever. The number one trade item coming out of the Caribbean was sugar. You could get sugar from the Mediterranean, but it was still expensive, but they actually found that Mediterranean sugar really exploded in the Caribbean. It really took to the climate. So for the first time ever, they have a whole abundance of sugar to be able to start shipping to Europe. And people clamor for it. It's called the sugar craze. And they couldn't sell enough. And so this causes a massive increase in the slave trade, which had already been going on at a much smaller scale. So now it's exploded with the Caribbean being one of the main hubs. And after the worst Spanish Succession with Britain now officially controlling the seas, the slave trade is a never ending resource. However, while the newly minted peace treaty is good business for the plantation owners, traders and merchants, the same can not be said for Mariners of the era. The common seamen on the docks of Jamaica and countless other port cities, who crew transatlantic trading vessels and slave ships, as well as the thousands of sailors who until recently served on the warships of the Royal Navy. Colin woodard is a journalist and author of the republic of pirates. The war of Spanish Succession when it ended, that was a bit of a cataclysm for many of the ordinary naval sailors because once peace came, the Royal Navy essentially contracted by three quarters dumping tens of thousands of ordinary sailors, naval sailors on the docks of wherever their ships happened to be. And simultaneously, because the supply of sailors had just grown astronomically, merchant shipping captains and owners realized this and slashed wages essentially by half in the aftermath of the war. So even if you found work on a merchant vessel, you were working for often almost literally starvation wages. It was often said that the being a sailor and this time period was much like being imprisoned except with the added possibility of drowning. Now it's not something you went into unless you had to. And now the brutality of the system got a lot more brutal. So it was creating a lot of tension and senses of injustice among ordinary sailors on the merchant vessels. And this was creating a sort of sociological powder keg that would soon explode in the aftermath of this conflict. Violent scenes like those on the docks of port royal, break out in every major port across the empire. The Mariners are embittered, desperate, and willing to do just about anything make ends meet. Most of them have spent their entire lives at sea, and a sudden career.

"It is the morning of November 22nd, 1718 of the coast of North Carolina. The crystal blue waters in the okra Coke inlet listen in the sunlight. Robert Maynard is a lieutenant in the British navy. His ship, the Jane, sails in concert with the ranger. Together they creep through the shimmering waters on the hunt for pirates. For years, the notorious pirate blackbeard has pillaged and plundered the Caribbean. Now, his attention is on the eastern seaboard of North America. For months, he's blockaded ports, raided ships and stolen vessels. But his tyranny has gone on long enough. It's reported blackbeard is now operating out of ocracoke island, a narrow and uninhabited strip of land. Governor Alexander spots with a Virginia has tasked lieutenant Maynard with bringing blackbeard to justice. By any means necessary. May not his days out of Virginia having sailed up the James river. He has stopped ships going in and out of the ocracoke inlet to quash any warnings of their approach. But Maynard has one major disadvantage. He doesn't have the firepower of naval vessels. The Jane and the ranger are gunless sloops that may not commandeered for this surprise attack. The only weaponry is what the soldiers can carry. As Maynard's ship comes around the island, he peers through his scope. There she is. Blackbeard's sloop, the adventure, sat peacefully at anchor. They've got her. The ranger comes from the other direction. Maynard has trapped blackbeard. Also he thinks. Through the scope, Maynard sees that the pirate crew is thin. Only a handful of men are on deck. Those on board are hung over from a night of drinking, and the rest of blackbeard's men are on shore. There's no escape now. The union Jack unfurls on both vessels as they approach the anchored pirates. The pirate crew sound the alarm. Blackbeard cuts the anchor and the ship hastily sets off. Without cannons, Maynard's men fire muskets at the adventure. But they do minor damage. Having lost the element of surprise. Maynard watches in horror as the adventure broadsides the ranger with cannon fire. The ranger is crippled and her crew were mostly dead, including their captain and first officer. The adventure begins to turn towards the Jain. Maynard orders his man at the helm to take evasive maneuvers, but the crew suddenly jerk forward as the Jane comes to a crashing out. They've hit a sandbar. Maynard orders the men to throw all non-essential items overboard to lighten the vessel. If they don't break free, black bear will cripple them just like the ranger. This will all be for nothing. The adventure continues to maneuver, readying to fire. The Jain is strength with grape shot. Iron pellets rake the ship, causing carnage, 20 of Maynard's men are dead, others rise in agony on the blood soaked deck. But the Jane is free of the sandbar and the two ships close the gap between each other. Anticipating the black bed will board them may not orders his surviving men into the hold and are ready their pistols. Only he and his helmsman remain above board. Maynard covers his head. The pirates are lobbing grenades onto the deck, grappling hooks tether the ships together and the pirates swing over. Blackbeard, sensing victory is at hand, is first over the rail. Maynard shouts the command to attack, bursting from the hold of the hidden naval officers, armed with pistols muskets and cutlasses may not surprise attack catches the pirates off guard. The fight is quick, and vicious, a thick cloud of gun and grenade smoke engulfs the deck of the Jain. Through the smoke, Maynard locks eyes with black beard. With cutlasses drawn. The two charged each other. The swords crash and beat against one another. Maynard slices blackbeard's arm. The pirate growls from the pain. Maynard dodges blackbeard's blade as he tries to slash at his belly. Blackbeard is now in a frenzy, pressing in on Maynard, backing him into the mast. But baynard finds an opening and jabs blackbeard. Before blackbeard can attack again, Maynard's men fire at the pirate captain. Blackbeard stumbles and drops to his knees. The frenzied look, drains from his face. Blackbeard is slain. The British navy overpower the remaining pirates. They have surrendered within minutes of their raid. Blackbeard lies at Maynard's feet. The pirate's corpse is 5 bullet wounds and some 20 cuts. But Maynard wants a trophy. He brings his cutlas down on the pirate's neck and slice his blackbeard's head clean off. Blackbeard's body is then thrown into the water to become fish food. Taking a clump of blackbeard stills sweaty, greasy black hair. Maynard lifts it and shows off the decapitated head to the captured pirates. His men, cheer. Victory. As Maynard returns to the colony of Virginia, a hero, he makes sure everyone witnesses his success. Hanging from the bow of Maynard's ship is blackbeard's severed head. Blackbeard.

The creature this week is the monopod from Greek and Roman mythology. Now, we're of course not talking about the single footed camera stabilizer, great for on the go photographers. Although if you slap a pair of Googly eyes and your monopod, like we did, it does kind of seem like it comes alive. No. Today, we're talking about the monopod creature, which, as you can imagine, is a one footed creature, also known as a Cy pod, or shadow foot. Basically, it looks like a human on top, but below the waist, it tapers into one enormous thigh, a calf muscle, and the biggest foot you can imagine. Like, think of the biggest foot you've ever seen? Not even close. Because have you ever seen a foot the size of an umbrella? Exactly. And looking up pictures of the monopod, three conclusions can be made. One, it appears difficult for the monopod to find suitable clothing, it's often drawn wearing nothing at all. Although maybe it's just laundry day in every drawing, who's to say? Secondly, this creature loves to do yoga. Loves. It's always drawn holding its leg straight up in the air like you'd hold an umbrella, or a parasol. Hence the shadow foot name. Still, that's some serious flexibility that would put any of the Apple fitness trainers to shame. Like, Greg Molly, have you seen this thing? Anyway, it's usually contorted in some impossible hold that gets the artist out of drawing that awkward area between the thigh and hips. That's probably on purpose, but can you blame them? Lastly, you might be tempted to think that the monopod has a hard time getting around, namely because it's often drawn sitting down, or falling on its back. But that's where you'd be wrong. Because the monopod is surprisingly agile. And good at jumping or rather hopping. Although, since hopping is using only one leg and jumping is using all legs for the monopod, a jump in a hop bar one and the same. That's it for this week.

"It was late morning on the high seas. And the first of the noble daughters was waking up, as the princess stepped away from the wheel. She. Would tell them all straight. Last night, all 12 ladies had boarded the ship. The daughters had never been on a boat before, and setting foot on a boat. Let's face it, wasn't something just anybody could do. The mere idea was thrilling. But to be actually doing it? Feet on floating wood? This was amazing. You could write a song about it with T pain. It was that big of a deal for the guests. And what groupon boat experience would be complete without something to drink. For her ladies in waiting, the princess had brought out the good stuff. And soon, all of her new friends had fallen asleep. A pile. Without hesitation, the princess had untied the ropes, opened the sails, she was a well seasoned solo sailor at this point, and headed toward the horizon under the cover of darkness. There were plenty of questions from the group, of course. Why were they out at sea? Would they be going back to shore now? Wasn't this kidnapping? And what did the princess mean by get to your stations right now, a storm is coming? I'm serious, all those other questions can wait. So cryptic. As though on cue, lightning flashed, thunder boomed, and rain began pouring down in sheets. There really was no time like the present to start learning how to control a boat. Because presently, they were about to sink. And the princess immediately began shouting directives to each of the ladies. It was glorious, the teamwork, the Montage that ensued, in a matter of moments, callouses formed, new hair flew wild, and each woman was turned into the most beautifully rugged pirates that ever lived. It was an experience prime for a masterclass, but there was no time to work out a deal because before they knew it, they had come to another island. Supplies were running low, so the pirates headed inland to gather food. In a matter of minutes, a handful of menacing guys had jumped from their hiding places, waving their swords like mad men. It was an ambush. They said they were pirates. The princess drew her own sword and shot it back. No, they were pirates. Tensions hung in the air until, one by one, the men stepped out of their fighting stances. Wait. They were all pirates. Suddenly this was like the first ever pirate con, which is actually a thing. They were complimenting each other's outfits, comparing weapons, discussing loot. It was awesome. That is. Until one of the men snapped out of it and jumped a top a large stump, demanding silence. They would see what the boss man had to say about all this. Standing before their chief, the princess explained that while they were all pirates here, each group existed due to differing tactics. The guys used force, but the woman used brains. Wisdom. Subterfuge. Together, they would be unstoppable. What do you know? There are 12 of us, 12 of you, the princess said in closing. The chief's eyes grew wide. Oh, yeah. She was right. They had enough for a full soccer team and a coach. Each. To the field boys, the chief shouted. Bus. Yeah, one of the pirates whispered. I think she meant that we could couple up and so it was decided. Naturally, the chief in the princess were the power couple. And the rest worked themselves out. To sweeten the deal further, the incoming pirates offered to divvy up their ship full of goods among the pairs. Love and riches for all, this called for a celebration. I mean, they were pirates, so very low celebration bar. But, you know, this met it. Long into the night they partied, and all the while, the men gulped the wine, while the women sipped. And eventually, the hosts fell into a deep sleep. The daughters looked to the princess, waiting for their signal. Each one had a man, and a plan. They also had daggers. Hours later, the princess and her ladies in waiting stood watching all the merch from their ship grow small in the distance. And disappear. For a while, no one said a word. Their dresses, the goods for sale, all of it was gone. Well, good job, ladies, the princess said it last. Their ships sat a little deeper in the water now than it was full of gold and jewels. On cue back on the island, each woman had helped each of their pirate Friends sleep a little more permanently, and with the pirates gone, it was easy to unload the merch from the merchant, swap their dresses for pants and shirts, and help themselves to the pile of loot on the island. The pirates had amassed far more riches than any of them had anticipated. And so the women took only the golden jewels, but left the rest. Weathered and worn, but experienced free and loaded with treasure, the princess and her crew now sailed across the sea, with winds in their sails and smiles on their faces. In time, they came to yet another port and docked. With their clothes and rugged appearance, they walked through town without anyone taking notice. For once in their lives, they were one with the crowd, and it felt surprisingly good. A rowdy crowd had squeezed into the main courtyard. One of the women asked a town's person when it was all about. The king's dead, don't you know? Like I said. Well no, they didn't know. Just then, a large rock flew through the sky and clocked the princess in the back of her head. She yelled and turned. Only to find the flying object, wasn't a rock at all. But a crown, the dead king's crown. She fished it out of her cloak and held it. Huh. What was all this? Linux things she knew, royal attendance and courtiers flooded in from all directions. Pointing and cheering at the princess. Long live the king. He's the new king. Shouts came from every direction as the nobles ushered the princess, who they apparently thought was a man out of the courtyard and into the castle, so the queen could have a good look at the chosen one. You see, the city's custom was this. If the king died and was survived by the queen, the queen went to the palace roof, toss the king's crown into the crowd, and whoever The Crown landed on was declared the replacement king. Yes, literally any man on the street capable of catching a crown or having one land on him was more preferable to the realm than the queen, being in charge. Nothing to read into there, and on this day, The Crown had chosen the visiting princess. In silence, she sat through the former king's funeral, and when it was over, the attendance wield the casket away. Even before it was gone, all eyes fell on the new king with anticipation. Everyone knew the perfect chaser to a funeral was a wedding, and after a tasteful amount of time, let's say about 25 minutes. The organist changed the tune from a dirge to here comes the bride. But the queen stood and held up a hand. She leaned over to the nearest noble with a concerned look. She wasn't trying to be.

"This has a modicum of truth. Amputation was very common way of treating wounds back then. It was either eliminate the limb or risk infection. Which could kill you. It's entirely possible that pirates would have had more limbs removed and is lost than normal people plainly. Let's address the big question. Did pirates talk like pirates. If real pirates appeared today would they fit in well on talk like a pirate day. The real reason why we think pirates talk like pirates can be traced entirely to a single person robert newton. Robert newton was a british actor from the twentieth through the fifties who starred in the nineteen fifty. Walt disney film treasure island playing the role of long john. Silver newton grew up in dorset england and went to university in cornwall. He basically took a west country. English accent turn it up to eleven in editor zone piracy stuff to it to make it his own. He reprised the role in nineteen fifty four movie long john silver and then in tv series by the same name. His performance was so iconic that he pretty much set the bar for what being pirate was the area of england that newton got the accent from was well represented among seafarers and there might have been some pirates at sort of talk like that but in reality there would have been a wide variety of accents. International talk like a pirate day was established in one thousand nine ninety-five five by john. Old chum bucket. Bauer and mark cap and sloppy. Summers was just intended as a joke and it didn't get very far until two thousand two when it was adopted by newspaper columnists dave berry robert newton of long john. Silver fame has been dubbed the patron saint of international talk like a pirate day in response to the day december fifth was dubbed international ninja day to honour ninjas which are the mortal enemies of pirates since then international. Talk like a pirate day has grown into a thing big enough. I guess for someone.

It was the toast and people love that sort of thing. All this sort of quirky stuff we were real people and it was the first time that people in britain actually listening to the podcast by. This is already radio. Roger gale's first party time broadcast was on his twenty second birthday.

I think actually we were all on the roof above the studio so they could get ernest bouncing up. Donald ruth day means caroline's large and growing audience. The dj's had real sway with listeners. We did break records. We do actually launched records. Playing a relatively unknown artist. Could make a big difference in that person's career. The fact we played them meant that they eventually became hits themselves. They're becoming real players in the music world. The bbc coming. They told us they definitely noticed. Radio caroline which was having a lot of success with the youth in the fall of thanking sixty four. The bbc even conducted secret market research to quote gather as much information as possible about the caroline listening phenomenon. The following year a newspaper reported that between the two ships caroline boasted the second largest english speaking audience in the world and it was bringing in fifteen thousand pounds a week in profit by the ship's first birthday they had some high profile fans stevie wonder where does the things wishing everyone it radio caroline a very happy birthday and many more to come.

I'm blackbeard. give me your money look. It's the black flag. It's the nice flag you give us your money and we won't kill you and trick people into giving away their money. I feel like blackbeard's a good one to go with for that. Just because he was so intimidating. Like one of my favorite blackbeard details. He was one of the less deadly pirates. because people just didn't start shit with them he come to a ship and they'd be like oh my god it's black beard and slipped on fire his beard. Yeah he's the fanciest man Take just take just kind. I mean that's another thing that. I was really disappointed in black sails for as like blackbeard used to wear like a red ribbons in his beard and his hair. And there's not a single piece of satnam that man on that show sparkle daddy. He was sparkled. Daddy so yeah What else yeah. So yeah pirate flags a lot of the time. So the most famous pirate flags would end up seeing reusing reuse By somebody because this pirate just wanted people to think that there were some other pirate okay.

There wasn't any kind of registry which taking me to the fact that there is a registry for clown faces. Yes think that the pirates would be at least that organized. I mean the thing about the pirates was a lot of them were like and i mean this for in the political sense. A lot of them were anarchist's so registry is not so much their thing code. Yes they had a.

"A legal captain leave. Use the word legal loosely. Someone who is the captain Who has been known for noncriminal trade and who of government gives the same letter or letter remark. That says that they're allowed to attack the ships of their enemies so it was a lot of the time. It was a way of kind of commissioning on merchant sailors into into helping during wartime Yah francis drake is a super famous private here but he was. Also he's somebody who was specifically working for england and specifically working against the spanish so this is going to be a weird question. Sorry in advance. So all of all of these were all of these specifically aquatic. Could you be terrestrial privateer. No that. Because i don't know anything about people who live on land. Okay okay. I only know about people who live on boats boats. Boats lake hawks. Like hawks right so so with that in mind Let's talk about ships. Okay now you already mentioned and bonnie and marguerite but i want to get to the the the the more the more traditional definition of ship the ones you sail around on. I was gonna say rather than the ones you write about but i guess you could write about those two so maybe the more versatile kind the kind you sail you sail on the sale on okay. So you mentioned there's the that you've been on at least one one pirate one decommission pirate ship. It's not really a pirate ship but it's probably it's kind of the closest to a pirate ship. I've been on okay so and that but it technically technically you can call a pirate ship If you go to boston you can actually still go on the last remaining ship. From the originally commissioned us navy that formed during the revolutionary war. It was during the revolution might have been during the war of eighteen twelve. I might be getting mixed up but anyway technically in the united states not a pirate ship because it was a us naval ship technically in britain higher ship. But it's a really beautiful. It's a really beautiful ship It's definitely if you ever have a chance to go on it. It's really cool. There's you can learn a lot of history and you can kind of see what a typical sailing vessel. The time would've looked at it. Looked like i've been on a bunch other ships but i don't feel comfortable necessarily Stating for sure whether they were pirate ships or not and i was on a replica of the golden hind which was francis drake's ship but it was a replica. So that doesn't really count. It's not actually being used for piracy at the time not ever uses. Piracy was replica was copy. That doesn't mean you get with it. It just means that you're not. It has not been used for piracy to this point. As far as i know. I'd like to think that they do at night. Okay so we're we're talking. Classic piracy this is. This is sort of what. I what i think of is old school. Piracy piracy is still a trade that exists and you in the golden age of piracy. When was that. how do you do so. Golden age of piracy is typically considered. I'm really bad at things that involve number. So this is not my. This is not my strong suit. But i believe it's typically considered late seventeenth century. Early eighteenth century. It's a pretty brief period of time. Most of the people on black sails a they do not die. The ones who do di do not die the way they die on the show however most of them were dead by seventeen. Thirty and the show takes place in seventeen fifty. Actually most of them were dead by seventeen twenty one so it was a very brief when we're talking about all these pirates. It was a very brief period and they really did all know each other. That's not like made up for the show that we weren't like hey let's just bring all the famous pirates together. In fact there are fewer famous pirates. Who were part of the same group which was called the flying gang the sailed out of nassau and and and province town newborn down at that point in time so it was. Yeah it was. It was a very brief period. There were earlier pirates. I don't know exactly what period people say is. This is golden age. This is the golden age. I'm sure there's somebody who has a real specific date definition but usually it's until the statement of the comics. Good.

"Where we talk hawks. So ordinarily this is jan miles explained the x. Men but one week out of every four we take the week off from our exhaustively produced added professional and research podcast and basically spend an hour talking about stuff talking about well hawks some so not. What are this week's hawks. So this week's hawks are seahawks. Such is ser. Francis drake the sixteenth century. Privateer who's featured in the film. This seahawks starring arrow flynn. I also realized before that. I should have said that this is entirely unedited. And and and four so as as you can tell from my careful and inclusion of everything in the injection but you mentioned yeah seahawks so this is would would you also include the character. Seahawk from sheera. Seahawk from shira is indeed a seahawk so for our less less not inclined listeners. How would you define a seahawk. So a seahawk is a bird that flies over the sea. I actually don't know anything. About what a seahawk is. I'm mostly here for the pirates. All right so for for our purposes than seahawks pirates seahawks are pirates. Do you know of any pirates. Who were actually birds or hawks. Ooh that's a good question. I feel like there probably are some lake in some kind of mation. I'm trying to remember if there are any of the rescuers. Don't off the top of my head but i feel like there probably were some birds who were pirates. Maybe up at treasure island that would follow. Now i'm you think there were a lot of parents. There were a lot of parents. Pirates not thinking about animal companions straight to someone who i know is one of your first look to jefferson and in general blackbird. Glass burn beard. Wow yeah i guess. I'm really really really hawk oriented so i should. I should say. And i have recently finished watching black sails and one of the great things about watching black sails with t. is that she is a massive pirate aficionado and will explain like the ways it doesn't doesn't relate to actual piracy and if you know me you know that this is the kind of thing i'm intensely into so so while i realized that some people that might not sound like a recommendation for me. It's like oh my god. I married the right person. But blackbeard is one of those and the show neglects the most one of the most amazing details of black friend his very best friend howler. Monkeys jefferson so so blackbeard At some point picked up a howler. Monkey i forget whether it was a want us. It was in bermuda but it might have been in port royal but he picked up this howler. Monkey jefferson however monkeys like. You're probably thinking all monkey pirate. you're thinking. Pirates of the caribbean. You're thinking like the little tiny monkey no howler. Monkeys are big boys and jefferson accompanied blackbeard. At least a few raids and was was Very dear friends so yes so so. Jefferson is one of my favorite pirates and he is not in black sales at all. He is kinda did blackbeard. Dirty how comfortable. You are having spoiler on the show. I mean it's up to you. We probably shouldn't spoil. We'll we'll see they're. Blackbeard is a historical in a number of what they're blackbeard is a historical in a number of ways Yeah they also They like move around some people and they have they have blackbeard. B b charles veins pirate daddy instead of henry jennings who is actually charles dance. Pirate daddy and some other pirate dad's stuff but anyway. Yeah so you're mentioning. Pirate dad's there are a lot of kind of like lineage or metaphorical lineage. Going on i mean. I feel like when you say pirate daddy can be taken to as and both of those were absolute true depending on the pirate So they're they're one of the things that people i think. I think it's becoming more known now but people often don't realize when they see kind of casual piracy out in games or stories is that Piracy was often haven for people who were excluded from mainstream society so there were a lot of black pirates. there were a lot of jewish pirates. There were a lot of pirates of east asian origin who had been in europe for whatever reason or in the colonies for whatever reason the rule lot of queer pirates So there's those kinds of pirate daddy's but the kind of daddy's we're talking about are the pirate daddy's where very frequently a pirate captain would take second prize ship couldn't obviously couldn't capped in the else and would appoint a captain to the price ship and that was usually somebody who they were kind of mentoring. Their lake pirate protege. And so yes. There were a bunch of people who were pirate proteges to To other famous. Pirates vein jennings so blackbeard and actually Benjamin horne gold. Yes so there were there. Were few pirate dads out there. Who who learned how to do. Pirate things from older wiser pirates. So i feel like. I have to have to ask who. Who is your favorite pilot or who are who are your favorite pirates. My favorite pirates. They can be favorites for specific purse. So many favorite pirates j. I feel like i feel like the thing. Is that on one hand. You know i feel like you got a shout out and bonnie in mary slash mark read and also i. I have a really soft spot for for a french. Pirate named law who was known for. And there's you know we don't know to what degree this was true. But he was known for doing things like eating the organs of his enemies. So low in want lullin was great. Yeah.
