If you liked this episode, and want to hear my take on VGM featuring ninjas (who are, after all, natural archenemies of pirates), you can check out episode 4 of my show. It’s an early episode, so it’s a little rough, but it’s got some fun songs. Listen at https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-9gsc7-118d91e
