The Principality of Sealand is arguably the world’s most stubborn micronation. Established by Roy Bates in the middle of the North Sea, Sealand has endured battles with radio pirates, British skepticism, and a coup d’état. Over 50 years later, the battered fort and its royal family continues to stand strong. Guest: Dylan Taylor-Lehman, staff writer, "Narratively," and author of "Sealand: The True Story of the World’s Most Stubborn Micronation and Its Eccentric Royal Family"
