Bill Heid joins Off the Grid Radio from London today, where he is in studio recording a radio theater production of the book Under Drake’s Flag, a classic story by G.A. Henty about life on the high seas as seen through the eyes of young 16th-century teen.
History is not just dates and dead guys. There are a lot of things that we can learn from history and character traits like integrity and courage never grow old or go out of date—they’re timeless.
