Chastity Belts and Carnies

This week we acquire the inside news from The Carny Chroniclers – those who write about the unusual performers who frequent sideshows: James Taylor, publisher of the famed “Shocked and Amazed” series and Tony Gangi, author of the new book, “Carny Sideshows” talk about their editorial exploits, the unusual people they have met, and their own passions about carny performers. OUT THERE’s Buck Wolf tells us of new canine anti-breeding devices, better known as Doggie Chastity Belts, and we hear of edible wedding dresses, whimsical furniture, vinyl pants, and how technology has saved people’s lives. Archivist Edward Meyer takes inside the vault to discuss Ripley’s extensive collection of real-life 15th Century chastity belts.
