Shiver me timbers! This week’s epi features lawyer turned author and pirate, Laura Sook Duncombe, whose work uncovers the bounty of female pirates history has long ignored. From Grace O’Malley, who terrorized shipping operations around the British Isles during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, to the earliest known female pirate, Queen Artemisia I of Halicarnassus, who plundered Greek and Persian ships around 500 BCE. Laura helps us scallywags find our sea legs as we have much to learn from these powerful women who came from all walks of life but had one thing in common: a desire for freedom.
