S05E16 – The Handsome Cabin Boy

Last week’s episode was on a traditional song, and that’s the same thing with this week’s episode! This week, we’re talking about a cover of a sea shanty called The Handsome Cabin Boy!

He may not be a Kate fan (yet!) but we have Cecilee’s good friend Andrew Martin, a fellow music enthusiast and a sailor for the US Navy, and a guest who’s ACTUALLY in the room with our host instead of on Skype, to discuss this song, and the genre of sea shanties in general!
