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.
