The Pirate Henry Every With Chris Parr

5 months ago

The legend himself Chris Parr joins Strider to discuss the barbarous and globe shifting act of piracy committed by Every and his crew in the Red Sea. There is a reason everyone on Earth was out to get this guy even though his career as a pirate was short lived. However, the impact he had on the future of global commerce is still felt today in many ways. This pirate story has it all: the bold, the bad and the barbarity!
