Podcast: Play in new window | Download
Robert Wadlow, the tallest man to ever walk the earth at 8 feet 11 inches tall, is featured this week in two different segments of the Ripley Radio Oddcast. The new book from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, Download the Weird, is a revolutionary combination of printed book and downloadable videos and photos via OddScan, a new feature on the Believe It or Not! app. The publisher, Anne Marshall, tells us how it works and how reviewers are giving it very high marks.
Also this week we learn: how the king of micro-miniature carvings, Willard Wigan, can stop breathing while he works; the basics of UFO sightings; about the world’s tallest Mohawk haircut that is more than three feet tall; and how Quidditch, the sport played in the Harry Potter series, made a splash during the recent Summer Olympics in London. Nashville-based Here Come the Mummies, provide the musical egress this week with She Parties.
