This week on Can I Just Say, culture writer Lindsey Romain joins us to discuss Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we had the most fun talking about The Force, the characters, the themes…. and a few things we had not anticipated.
Daphne and Zethu finally met in person when Zethu came to New York for her new film, Mandela’s Gun, to win 3 awards at the Harlem International Film Festival. The recorded in a hotel room audio isn’t great but the conversation is. We discuss Zethu’s two films and of course the last half of Season 4 of Black Sails.
This week on Can I Just Say, we discuss Jane Austen’s novel, Sense and Sensibility, with Black Sails actress, Louise Barnes… thereby creating possibly the best intersection of beloved stories ever? We discuss the charming Dashwood sisters, the elusive narrator, and our common love of Mrs Jennings.
This week on Fathoms Deep, we are lucky enough to have a second visit with Toby Schmitz to discuss Season 4 of Black Sails and the Rat that got the whole Damned Boulangerie.
This week on Fathoms Deep, we discuss both historical and Black Sails versions of Woodes Rogers with Luke Roberts. We establish that Rogers is complex and also absolutely a pirate and give us a minute to adjust our rings nonchalantly while we prove it.
This week on Fathoms Deep, Daphne chats with Natasha Simonova, a Fellow and Lecturer in English Literature at Exeter College, University of Oxford. We discuss the books within the story of Black Sails, other books of the period, and the fact that Thomas Hamilton’s favorite color was absolutely and undoubtably Blue.
