How I Survived Being Kidnapped by Somali Pirates: Michael Scott Moore

Michael Scott Moore was kidnapped by Somali pirates. In today’s interview, journalist Michael Scott Moore details his harrowing experience being held captive by Somali pirates for 2 years, he also jokes about Somali pirates watching Captain Phillips, and answers the question - how corrupt is Somalia? Thankfully this is a story of survival but reporting from conflict zones will always be dangerous.

Micheal Scott Moore has many critics asking where should journalists draw the line and some even claiming that he had no business taking such risks and didn’t deserve aid. Personally, I disagree - if reporters like Micheal Scott Moore decide to avoid “dangerous” places, how many important stories will go untold?

Micheal Scott Moore has appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, The Joe Rogan Experience (Episode #1149), Ted, Google, and is the author of The Desert and The Sea. If you’re interested in supporting Micheal you can buy a copy here: Win a PlayStation 5:
