Today’s Topic Why do we sea the pirates everywhere.
In this episode of the Worldbuilder’s Anvil Podcast, We see pirates! Michael has been itching about this topic since we started talking about the sea. So I decided we best cover the subject and talk about why people get so caught up by pirates in fiction, and hopefully not in real life.
We will talk about some of the great pirates we love in fiction, some of the best pirate fiction we have heard of, and just geek out about the pirates in fiction. So join us as we look at the unscrupulous scallywags we love from smugglers to modern day hackers.
