Being Blackbeard Ep 9 – Crossbones/Blackbeard Season Finale
The final episode of Crossbones and the final episode of Being Blackbeard. Tony and Phil discuss the intricacies of the final two episodes. What was really in that bottle that Nellie gave to Kate. Is Antoinette a zombie? Will Fletch become a real man? We're all pretty sure that Crossbones won't be picked up for another season. If it is, we'll happily do more Being Blackbeard episodes. If not, there are other projects in the pipeline and I'll post here when they're up and running. Thank you for listening, telling your friends, and interacting with us online. We've enjoyed doing the show for you and hope to do more in the future. Meanwhile, we're all appearing at comedy clubs around the country.

Being Blackbeard Ep 8 – Beggarman
On this episode we do a bit of lamenting the 2-hour season finale next Saturday where NBC is blowing out the last 2 (3?) episodes of Crossbones. But we also talk about the badassery of Nenna chopping off her own finger, Lowe getting the lash, and Eisengrim putting a stop to it. And, of course, what Lowe should have put in the box for Nenna to find. And be sure to join us next week for the series finale. What are your thoughts on it? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Being Blackbeard Ep 7 – A Hole In The Head
You know when TV shows do the "This week on a very special episode of..."? Usually those suck. But not this time. On a very special double episode of Being Blackbeard, we've got an exclusive interview with Ezra Buzzington who plays Oswald Eisengrim on Crossbones. He gives us some great insight on the show including the writing, the experience of working with John Malkovich, and Eisengrim's secret back story. Plus Tony and I dig deep into the mind blowing episode 6 of Crossbones: Tons of reveals, a character killed, revelations of Antoinette, and Blackbeard having his frickin' head drilled. Thanks for telling your friends and leaving us those great reviews on iTunes and Stitcher! Keep on keepin' on!

Being Blackbeard Ep 6 – The Return
Our episode numbering is off by one now since we did a show last week and Crossbones didn't. So this is our 6th episode and their 5th. We're here for you when they abandon you. Just saying.... On this week's show we talk a lot about the good vs. evil, back and forth, shades of gray design of Crossbones' characters, how the show has gotten stronger again over the last two episodes, and what song is really missing from the show. Thanks for listening! Be sure to tell you friends and keep leaving those great 5-star written reviews for us on iTunes and Stitcher. You're helping us keep the pinnace on the water. (Heh... He said 'pinnace'...)

Being Blackbeard Ep 5 – The Mystery Episode
NBC decided to show fireworks instead of Crossbones on July 4th. Whatever... So with no new episode to jabber about, and with Rich out sick for the evening, Tony and I decide to conjure a made up episode out of thin air. With mixed and funny results. :) Fletch gets a spin off with a little person, Mick Jagger makes a guest appearance, and cocaine becomes involved. It's the best never-written episode of Crossbones ever. The Crossbones character reference page mentioned in the episode should be up soon.

Being Blackbeard Ep 4 – Antoinette
On this week's Crossbones podcast: Who is Antoinette? What the hell is NBC thinking? Does that candle/blinky eye think actually work? What Lowe should have done instead of rifling through the Commodore's drawers while he was out. (That sounds a little dirty...) And the two things we think would drastically improve the show. Big News!: We are now officially in the iTunes podcast store and the Microsoft podcast store. We're making a big push to hit the New and Noteworthy chart on iTunes, and that's totally up to you. If you like the show drop by and give it a 5-star written review and help us launch this thing into open water.

Being Blackbeard Ep 3 – The Man Who Killed Blackbeard
On this week's Crossbones podcast: Why wasn't there an episode last week? Who is the bleeding eye lady? Are the writers making commentary on the present day political and financial landscape? Why do we have to go to IMDB just to find out the names of the characters? And do those IMDB numbers tell us anything about who will live and die in the series? All this and more discussed on episode 3 of Being Blackbeard. Give it a listen!

Being Blackbeard Ep 2 – The Covenant
While Rich is out with a bout of bad sushi, Phil and Tony take the helm and steer the pirate ship into the second episode of Crossbones. Pirates assume different things about future technology, the prostitutes and the sponges, and what we thought was going to happen with Sam Valentine. Plus the parameters for the Crossbones drinking game.

Being Blackbeard Ep 1 – The Devil’s Dominion
The first episode of both Crossbones and the Being Blackbeard Podcast! Phil Johnson, Tony Dijamco, and Richard Dreyling give their thoughts on the structure and pacing of the show, the initial plot line, and where the show might go in future episodes.
