Elucidate No. 51 - The Whaleship Essex





  Direct download mp3 (HQ - 91.3mb - Right Click to download)



 Here's an episode about the whaleship Essex of the 1820's. It involves sailing ships, whales, and a torturous journey for survival. I became interested in sea-faring through books, subsequently the idea of being out at sea without modern technology fascinates me.

    My wife says that this story is not for women. 

    I decided to make a historical podcast episode while waiting for DanCarlin to release his next episode. I probably won't be doing like this again for a while, unless some financial realities can be met with it. It's more time consuming than the conversational "interviews" I do. And, I'm really a professional musician, not an orator.
    Nonetheless, this history related podcast differs from others in that I scored a soundtrack for it, and I hope you enjoy it! And I'm not talking about just queuing a tune in the background, I actually scored it like a movie.

    In this episode I stood away from people's names, and dates. I'm not good with those, never have been. I'm interested in story and the sci-fi like quality of historical events. I say "sci-fi like" because we can't live the way people of the past lived, even if we wanted to. It was literally a different world!

   
Indirectly related to this episode, a good friend said that humans were built for adversity. I'd never considered that until he said that to me. But, in regards to this episode, and life. Unless you're going through a life-or-death situation, if you think that whatever you may be enduring right-now is impossible to get through, think again! 











For a great read and far more details that may answer many of your questions I recommend even implore you to read the book In The Heart of the Sea.










       I accept tips.
