    Ripley Radio: An On-Demand Oddcast – A Fingerless Dart Thrower & Big Foot Hunting in Oregon

    It’s hard to imagine a high-ranking dart thrower with no fingers. Add to that the fact that he has only one good eye and it becomes totally unbelievable!

We go road trippin’ with Chad Lewis (http://www.unexplainedresearch.com) to Oregon this week on Ripley Radio, (http://www.ripleyoddcast.com)the official program of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, and we learn of a unique trap created to capture bigfoot, and then we stop off at Bigfoot Tavern for a sandwich and a beer.

The lady in charge explains the hows and whys of this intriguing story; Angela reports that a new style Breathalyzer is being developed that can predict and identify various illnesses; and Ralf describes a drug bust in Florida that featured the discovery of drugs hidden in an unusual part of the body, and it’s not where you think!

    Ripley Radio, (http://www.ripleyoddcast.com) the official radio program of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! (http://www.ripleys.com) has gone to the dogs, because dogs, in their own cute way can be quite strange at time. This week, we’ll hear of an accident in which a Chihuahua was driving one of the cars. We’ll also hear about Sally, a small dog from Fort Lauderdale who fell 15 stories down a shaft and walked away with only minor cuts and bruises. But boy, was she upset reports Dr. Spencer Ratnoff, the vet who treated her.

    Additional weird and wacky stories on the July 7 episode of Ripley Radio (http://www.ripleyoddcast.com)include: There’s an ultimate Elvis Presley fan that has turned his home into a private museum in honor of the rock and roll king. Graceland Too, with no official affiliation with the real Graceland in Memphis, is open to the public. Chad Lewis (http://www.unexplainedresearch.com) says all you need to do is knock on the door anytime and the owner will be glad to give you a tour; do you use Instagram? If you do and you are in London, you can post a food photo and get a free meal. Angela tells us all about it and adds that Believe It or Not!, 52% of the population regularly takes photos of their food before eating; we hear of the discovery of a mastodon skull on the banks of a man-made lake in New Mexico.
