Check out this clip of Maersk Alabama Master, Capt. Richard Phillips, on Comedy Cental’s “The Daily Show” that aired April 6. John Stewart does a good job of interviewing him, touching on points such as the hijacking and subsequent rescue from the lifeboat, a merchant mariners role in bringing food aid to Africa and weapons aboard ship.
Capt. Richard Phillips was on the show to promote his new book, A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS, and Dangerous Days at Sea
