Each year, the Pirate Guys are swamped by requests for print and broadcast interviews. It's especially hard to schedule live interviews on the 19th, but if ye'd like t'tape something to air that day (or any other), contact us as early as possible! (And that goes double if you'd like to arrange a book signing or other personal appearance.)

More recent media mentions are listed on our "buzz" page and this year's TLAPD calendarrrr.
