Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Hawkeye State has to offer!

Whether you're a born-and-raised Iowan, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Iowa Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Eric Jones and Dan Coffey introduce you to the weirdest, wackiest, most outrageous characters and events in the state, and take you places you never could have imagined―some of them right around the corner!

• Meet the Guinness World Record–holding house-of-cards builder, a 13-foot giant sloth wearing a Santa suit, and a man who hiccupped for sixty-nine years.
• Discover the best places to play Chicken Bingo and Hoover Ball; bathe in a Murphy tub; or drink a strawberry phosphate, Pink Lady, or Dipsy Doodle.
• Tour the rotating Squirrel Cage Jail, the only all-mule cemetery in Iowa, and the Matchstick Marvels museum, where you can view the U.S. Capitol (made of 478,000 matchsticks).
