Halloween Ep. 2.0 - Manuscript Found in a Bottle by Edgar Allan Poe
Oct 30 16
Welcome to our second annual Halloween special here at the Maritime History Podcast. This year I opted for a nautical tale by the ever-popular American author of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. Some people love this tale, some hate it, but no matter your side, this is a proper sea-tale of weirdness, "ghosts" and an underlying current of horror, so, without any further rambling, I bring you my reading of Manuscript Found in a Bottle by Edgar Allan Poe.

Maritime history is the key to all history!
70% of the earth's surface is covered with water. 99% of history podcasts focus mainly on events that take place on land. Brandon Huebner, with The Maritime History Podcast, is doing his part to solve this problem. Brandon has all the key skills of a great educational podcaster - careful research, good organization, a nice voice, and a strong instinct for pacing. But he's also a great teacher. He knows when to slow it way down while explaining something tricky. Anyone who likes history should give this show a try.
