18th Century Heiress-Turned-Pirate? Tell Me More!

“18th-century heiress-turned-pirate” may sound like the tagline of a cheesy romance novel, but remarkably, it’s a fairly accurate description of the indomitable Anne Bonny!

It’s a story you won’t want to miss! You can listen for free on your favorite podcast player, or tune in below.
