A man in 1717 has a midlife crisis, and decides he's going to leave his family and go be a pirate. He builds himself a ship, sets sail, makes friends with Blackbeard, plunders many ships, and then you might say he gets a little too successful at piracy. That guy's story — all true — this week on This American Life.
