Trice Forgotten, a new nautical epic podcast from Rusty Quill, will officially launch on 2nd August 2022.
Following Captain Alestes and her crew, Trice Forgotten explores the stories of those often forgotten by history. Alestes keeps her head down, ferrying passengers and cargo across the seas. But, as her passengers become crew, she has a choice: build a safe harbour or drown in a seas of excuses.
Creator and lead writer, Nemo Martin said of the project:
“The nautical epic genre has always glorified colonial natural history endeavours where race, gender, science and power continue to be deeply entwined. It was important to me to write Trice Forgotten as an ode to nineteenth-century gender non-conforming scientists of colour so that we celebrate the exploits and achievements of those continually made forgotten. I hope that curiosity and passion for research are ignited by this anti-colonial epic; and that people are as excited as me for the weird fish facts, pirate heists and high-octane sea-monster quests!”Nemo Martin
Today we’re delighted to release the first-look trailer for this pelagic, piratical podcast. You can find it wherever you find your podcasts or you can play it on Acast now. Please note, that some podcast players take longer than others to pick up brand-new shows.
As well as the main story of the show, we’ll also be releasing regular episodes which explore the historical context of the show, highlighting the real lives that inspired this epic. The first episode of Trice Forgotten: Below Decks will release on 9th August.
We’re so proud of this show, and want to take this moment to give a shout-out and thanks to the talented folks who have worked on Trice Forgotten.
