Coastie is the prequel to Crash Barry's Tough Island.
During Coastie, you’ll sail from the Gulf of Maine to the Gulf of Mexico aboard a 210 foot Coast Guard cutter, during the late 1980s drug war and war on Haitian refugees and witness the misadventures and mistakes of Seaman Barry, a 20-year-old stoner hippie-punk-and-wannabe poet deckhand. There’s lots of bad in these tales. Bad sex. Bad drugs. And bad men. Because Coastie is an in-depth look at hazing, toxic masculinity and group think.
In Coastie, there are many painful and often not-safe-for-work-or children’s ears moments, which is one of the reasons that except for Episode 1, Coastie will be exclusively published twice a month exclusively for Patreon subscribers. Visit crashbarry.com or https://www.patreon.com/crash_barry for more details on how to support Crash's work and gain access to lots and lots of perks and special content.
While Coastie is for subscribers-only, the latest episodes of Devils and Dirtbags and the Disinfomaniacs show with Nathan Bernard and Andy O’Brien, plus Open Ears Maine and a new monthly podcast about trying to live closer to nature will all remain FREE via the Crash Program pod-channel.
Coastie, though, like a rare bottle of small batch bourbon, will remain on the top shelf, out of reach of kids and the highly sensitive.
