Wild Men, Hot Water Bottles & Not Missing Work for 44 Years

Detroit’s Deborah Ford retired from the US Post Office in February having never missed a day of work in her 44 years. She visits this week and tells us how she did it. Also this week on Ripley Radio, the official broadcast program of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, we hear from Brian Jackson, who holds several world records – for blowing up hot water bottles.  He once lifted a car with his lungs – sort of.


  • Chad Lewis reports on the wild men who at one time probably lived in the woods and hills around your house
  • Jim Kidrick of the San Diego Air & Space Museum tells us about the new Ripley exhibit that will be featured at his facility through 2013
  • Ripley archivist Edward Meyer calls in from the floor of that unique exhibit in San Diego; Joe Kasinski from the Orlando Ripley’s Believe It or Not!  Odditorium updates us on his new exhibits and reports on the success of World Sword Swallower’s Day last week

Swedish House Mafia sings their hit, Don’t Worry Child as this week’s musical egress.
