In our new series on the Explorers Podcast, we look at the life of English explorer, admiral and privateer Francis Drake. In our first episode, we look at Drake’s younger years, including the voyages he made to Africa and the Caribbean in the 1560s – culminating in the Battle of San Juan de Ulúa in 1568.
