July 16, 2021

The Outer Banks Podcast, presented by SEASIDE VACATIONS.  On this episode of the podcast we talk with James Charlet author of “Shipwrecks of the Outer Banks: Dramatic Rescues and Fantastic Wrecks in the Graveyard of the Atlantic.”  Keeper James tells us how the Outer Banks has become the Graveyard of the Atlantic, how the crisis of shipwreck after shipwreck was answered with the formation of the  little known US Life-Saving Service, and why ship captains across the country dreaded traveling near the Outer Banks’ Cape Hatteras.  We also talk about the Outer Banks involvement with the Titanic and much more.  If you have ever been interested in shipwrecks this podcast is a must listen.
