In our first show of 2013, we talk with the king of Stupid Human Tricks, Brian Pankey. He holds more than 2,000 records for doing stupid things! Gail Ruben, the doyenne of death, joins us again and talks about the brighter side of death – the unique, weird and sometimes strange funerals that follow.
Other strange things discussed on the January 7 episode of Ripley Radio, the official broadcast partner of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! includes a discussion with Mort Banks who sold a gallon of BBQ Sauce on eBay for nearly $10,000. Tune in to see what kind of sauce brought in that kind of dough! We also hear from Star Donovan who has created an entirely new image of vampires – for grade school kids – in a series of books. Are some “urban legends” really true? We hear that some are much more than myths.
Benjamin Gibbard provides our first musical egress of 2013 with Teardrop Window.
