S1E7: Outlander in the Cape Fear: A Pirate's Life for Stede
Play • 51 min

"Burgwin-Wright Presents... Outlander in the Cape Fear" explores the history of Colonial North Carolina through its depiction in the book and Starz TV series "Outlander."

On this week's episode, we mine the many pop culture lives of Stede Bonnet, known as the Gentleman Pirate. How did someone with such a non-threatening nickname go on to inspire the vicious Stephen Bonnet on "Outlander" and HBO Max's new comedy series "Our Flag Means Death." Who was Stede, why did he leave his entire life behind to be a pirate and what happened in his eventful two years on the sea?

This week's special guest is Jeremy Moss, the author of "The Life and Tryals of the Gentleman Pirate, Major Stede Bonnet." For more information and to buy Jeremy's book, visit his website at authorjeremymoss.com.
