You know all about Moby Dick, right? Well, did you know it was based on the true story of the whaling ship The Essex? Listen in as the Dolls tell you a harrowing story of a whale attack, and the following 93 days that the Essex crew spent at sea just trying to survive.

There are sperm whales, sharks, starvation, desert islands, and cannibalism - oh my! As told by the first mate Owen Chase in his book, The Essex.
