Felix Graf von Luckner was probable the most popular merchant raider captain of World War 1. His exploits sold millions of copies after the war and became even more legendary since his ship SMS Seeadler was actually a sailing ship.

Just to put his escape from Motuihe into perspective, that island is just a couple of kilometres off the coast of Auckland, New Zealand!

Instead of making so many silly comic strip superhero movies, they should make a file about this great real life super hero.

hmm. i'm not shure if the extra sounds should be used in a podcast. as you are void of moving images and the face of Indy to distract you, the sounds become way more pronounced. also the leader format works perfect for a video, less for a podcast. just my 2c

In the late 70's I bought a 1920's book about Count Luckner and the Seealder at a used book store. Man that was fascinating reading. The Seealder was a three-masted, square-rigged sailing ship -- a type that was in decline in the early years of the 20th century, and that alone made it a more interesting story. Luckner always felt some sadness when he had to sink another sailing ship, as they were in decline. He did, however, sink a schooner carrying a ...load of turtles.

I also think this would make a great film, there are many stories that I know of that would make for a really good movie. However the times as they are, well its ain`t gonna happen. Sadly.
