Timbers are shivering as Greg Jenner digs down on the legendary pirate, Blackbeard. Why did Blackbeard blockade a small town while scratching himself in frustration? How many wives is too many wives? And what exactly did he put in his beard? He’s joined by historian and piracy expert Dr Rebecca Simon and comedian Stu Goldsmith, host of the fantastic Comedian’s Comedian podcast.
