Ep 592 - Master and Commander (Aubrey/Maturin #1), by Patrick O'Brian

Flog the jib and shiver me timbers, it's time to set sail with the first of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin novels Master and Commander. It's equal parts ship jargon, ship action, and shipmen (aka sailors) pondering themes of isolation and authority. Plus, we get to the bottom of who exactly is the master and who is the commander.

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
