Under the Crossbones

Nick Tyler is a pirate fan, Lego nut, writer, and comedian out of Nottingham, England. And his Captain Pigheart stories are a treat for any (adult) pirate fan. Not for the kiddies. But absolutely hilarious.
Nick and I go everywhere in this conversation: pirates, comedy, writing techniques, Lego, Transformers… This one’s a thousand miles wide. 🙂

Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture. Your host Phil Johnson (comedian, musician, and pirate geek) interviews the most interesting people in the pirate subculture: Actors, Authors, Historians, Musicians, Artists, Festival Founders, Clothing and Prop Designers, Treasure Hunters, Archaeologists, and more.
