Fathoms Deep: A Black Sails Podcast
Welcome to our in-depth look at the narrative and character development of the epic Starz series Black Sails.
To listen spoiler free, start at the beginning (bottom of the page) of the episode by episode discussion (each of our episode titles refers to the episode of Black Sails covered) and listen to the interviews as they appear chronologically to hear cast and producer insights relevant to that point in the show.
Join the conversation on twitter! @BlackSailsCast
Daphne and Zethu finally met in person when Zethu came to New York for her new film, Mandela’s Gun, to win 3 awards at the Harlem International Film Festival. The recorded in a hotel room audio isn’t great but the conversation is. We discuss Zethu’s two films and of course the last half of Season 4 of Black Sails.Read More
