The Third Foot: Richard Pockrich

Our monthly bonus episode sees us dive deeper into the life of a figure who we discussed in our World’s Worst Inventor episode, Captain Richard Pockrich. The Irish eccentric proposed putting wings on all the adults in Ireland, blood transfusions to promote immortality and also invented the eery glass harp, that musical instrument beloved of spooky and hypnotic types. He’s going to be a hero in our book one day (it’s being written, we promise!), so let’s celebrate him now!
