Episode 116: Roy Sullivan, the Electric Man

January 3, 2021

This week, in this new year of 2021 where everyone's hoping for a bit of good luck, we're hoping you'll appreciate that your luck could not be worse than Roy Sullivan. The Guinness world record holder for most recorded lightning strikes (seven! or eight, depending on which ones you count), Roy Sullivan's story is a reminder of how improbably bad your luck can get. We felt sorry for Roy, but you can't help but laugh at the absurdity of what happened to him, recorded and with evidence from official records from the Shenandoah National Forest where he worked. Spare a thought for Roy Sullivan. May your 2021 be excellent, with no lightning strikes.
