Captain Kidd: Pirate or Privateer?


13-10-2021 • 49 minutos

Captain William Kidd is a name that permeates pirate lore, but what is less discussed are his Scottish routes. But was this man a terror of the high seas, or patriotic privateer? What's the difference between pirates and privateers anyway? Join me in the first of this two part episode, where I'll investigate the life and crimes of Captain Kidd so you can make your mind up before his trial - is he innocent or shall he hang?

Interviews with:

  • Dr David Wilson, historian and author
  • Richard Zacks, author of Pirate Hunter
  • Noel Young, journalist and founder of the Pardon Captain Kidd campaign.
