Podcast 68 – Laughed to Death in Newport


Laughed to Death in Newport

In Episode 68, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger stroll the streets of Newport, Rhode Island, in search of the story behind 20-year-old Rosa Walker, who, according to dozens of 1878 newspaper accounts, laughed herself to death. Could this really happen? We call upon a medical doctor to help explain how. You may just learn something on this episode (sorry).
