Des Ekin has uncovered an American who deserves to be discussed among the many heroes (and anti-heroes) of early America. Ekin, the author of the new book "The Lionkeeper of Algiers," joins the podcast to discuss the battles with the Barbary Pirates during the late 18th and early 19th centuries in America and the subject of his book, James Cathcart - a young sailor who has all the makings of Rick from the film Casablanca.
