Voodoo Dolls and a UFO Gathering in the Desert -Episode 197

Where do UFO aficionados go for vacation? This year, a record number of them will be heading to Joshua Tree, Calif., to attend the second Contact in the Desert conference which is promoting a stellar lineup of speakers and events. Barbara Harris, one of the featured speakers, visits with Tim this week and tells us all about the much-anticipated confab. Tim also talks with author Denise Alvarado about her new book, The Voodoo Doll Spellbook, and learns a little about the Voodoo culture and that all Voodoo spells are not necessarily bad. Additional wonderfully weird, wacky and unbelievable stories you’ll hear on the July 21 episode of Ripley Radio include: Angela provides an update and some very strange facts about Google’s quest to develop a driverless car; Ralf explains how a man was able to drive half-way across the country before realizing that the elderly lady sitting in the passenger’s seat was dead; Chad Lewis takes us roadtrippin’ to Wisconsin where we meet Chatty Belle, a dairy cow behemoth; and high school principal Dennis Best tells us how his school graduated 14 sets of twins in June and how much fun it was trying to figure out one from another prior to their matriculation. British songster Ed Sheeran provides us with this week’s musical egress, his chart topper, Sing.
