  • Access to all my (forthcoming) Patreon exclusive content including special episodes and audiobook chapters. I'm planning episodes on Spanish Conquest of the New World, English Colonization of North America, early French Piracy, Ancient World Piracy (think Greek and Roman), and the oft-promised, much anticipated, adults only pirate cussing episode. I'm working on audiobook versions of Treasure Island, A General History of Pirates & The Buccaneers of America.
  • My eternal gratitude & the warm feeling that comes from helping me make the show, feed myself, and keep a roof over my head
  •  The best way to support the show is through Patreon. But don't worry. If you don't care to pledge more all our other rewards - except the Commodore's ship - will be for sale on the website.

About

I create and host The Pirate History Podcast, a show about the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. I discuss the background, origins, and influences of the most notorious pirates and tell their stories as entertainingly as I can. We talk as well about the impact they have on us today. I'm passionate about the project, proud of it, and humbled by the response I've gotten. With your help I can release episodes more frequently, with a greater scope and depth of topics, as well as keep the lights on and buy some of those sources and histories I've had my eye on. Thank you so much.
Goals
$500 - reached! per Each Weekly Episode
At $500 an episode I can quit my day job and focus full time on the podcast. Not only (longer) weekly episodes, but all of the supplemental material I've been dying to create. YouTube exclusive content like visual documentaries and pirate themed reviews, trips to Pirate museums, real world interaction with the Pirate community and maybe... a book? I won't be getting rich but I'll be able to do this, something I truly love, for a living.
