Life experienced by Jack Aubrey in Podcasts – Historic Naval Fiction

When you read naval fiction set in the Ages of Sail you often want to know more about life at sea during the period. You can not put everything in a book and it is helpful to have sources to expand your knowledge. You can of course buy a non-fiction book or look up the glossary but if you would like to widen your knowledge in a more relaxed way you could try a Podcast.

The site¬†republicandempire.com/white-ensign has a series of Podcasts which use the books of Patrick O’Brian as a route to discuss various aspects of naval life. Some recent examples include Puddings, Portsmouth, Privateers and Ships & Boats of the Mediterranean, which shows the variety of subjects covered.
