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.
This week on Fathoms Deep, Daphne chats with Meganne Young about everyone’s favorite – Abigail Ashe. We discuss pianos (sorry), pirate culture shock, and how powerful the words ‘good’ and ‘stop’ can be.
Also, we choose our own Abigail adventures because we miss her!
