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!
Welcome to our new Podcast, Can I Just Say, in which the ladies and guests will give the Fathoms Deep treatment to other stories. In honor of our tall ship lovers, we started the new podcast by covering Master and Commander. Enjoy and join us by subscribing to Can I Just Say.
This week on Fathoms Deep, nothing like rum at 11:30am with a Proper Pirate. The ladies went to Dragon Con and Zach spoke to us about who Charles was to him, gave us lessons on how to radio, and many a potential hashtag was born (but no pirate babies) #WhosYourPirateDaddy #EveryoneDoZachMcGowan
This week on Fathoms Deep, we had listeners ask the questions. We discussed what we would do and who we would be in the world of Black Sails, the perfect pirate dinner party, and our amazing experiences podcasting about this beautiful story. Thank you to all of our listeners. Enjoy a peek behind our curtain.
