“18th-century heiress-turned-pirate” may sound like the tagline of a cheesy romance novel, but remarkably, it’s a fairly accurate description of the indomitable Anne Bonny!

A few episodes into our “Forgotten Women” mini-series — where I sneakily boost your vocabulary by sharing stories you probably didn’t learn about in school — we’re shedding light on one of the most famous female pirates from the “Golden Age” of piracy.

It’s a story you won’t want to miss! You can listen on your favorite podcast player, or tune in below.
