Michael LoPresti is one of the earliest Jack Sparrow impersonators and coordinator of the Rogues Armada, a worldwide consortium of pirate entertainers. We dig into how the group came together and what everyone gets out of it. And we dive into the Jack Sparrow biz and how it's changed since he got into it. And, of course, some good hilarious "road stories". :) Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture.
