Oh, the pirate and privateer history and the Age of Sail – it’s time to unleash the letters of marque as we jump in to minute 12 of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. Join us for this historical episode as we take a discuss letters of marque from the 18th century to the 21st century, including the claim that the Goodyear blimps Resolute and Volunteer operated as a privateers during World War II, have fun with background fisherman, and deep dive into Pirates of the Caribbean symbolism regarding Lord Cutler Beckett’s claim that the world is shrinking – noting the clock, disappearing edges on the map, an improved Port Royal, an expanding East India Company, and that being employed by England as a privateer is not what Captain Jack Sparrow views as freedom.
