Podcast Life 3

This week I listen to another podcast of Joe Rogan’s; this time his guest was Michael Scott Moore a journalist and novelist. The podcast focused on how Michael was kidnapped by Somali Pirates and spent 2 and a half years in captivity.
I was instantly drawn to this podcast because Michael’s experiences just sounded so surreal. I loved the Tom Hanks’ film Captain Philips so I was just generally curious to learn more about what had happened.
This podcast was fascinating because even though I have heard about the Somali Pirates before I have never heard about it from someone who has actually been kidnapped. I can’t even comprehend what that would be like to be held captive for 2 and a half years.
One thing that surprised me the most was how calm Michael seemed when talking about what had happened to him. Michael does say that writing his book has helped him to be able to talk about his experience. The conditions he had to live in; the beatings he suffered and the thoughts of suicide he had are just incomprehensible . I can’t even imagine what him and has family have been through.
Michael has wrote a book about his experience – “The Desert and the Sea: 977 Days Captive on the Somali Pirate Coast”. I am really tempted to give it a read as I am just fascinated by Michael’s story.
I was going to venture out and listen to other podcasts but there are just so many Joe Rogan podcasts which look so interesting… he has some amazing guests.
