Ep02 – The Ocean Blue pt.1

     The explorers that first crossed the Atlantic to explore and conquer the New World were birthed by a European continent simmering with religious strife and political tension. Less an episode about pirates and more a snapshot of 15th century Europe and the characters that launched the Age of Exploration.
