Episode 5: Ohio v Death: The Story of Eddie Rickenbacker

LISTEN to EPISODE 5 HERE! Ohio v. Death: Alex travels to and records in an exact replica of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker’s childhood home. We interview Warren Mott, the owner and curator of the awesome Mott’s Military Museum in Groveport, OH. Alex and Warren look at the life and many near deaths of Eddie Rickenbacker, America’s “Ace of Aces” in World War I. We look at the dozens of times he cheats death during his incredible life as Columbus’ first national celebrity.


Below is the replica of Captain Eddie’s childhood home where we recorded Episode 5. The house was constructed and sits on the property of Mott’s Military Museum in Groveport, OH. Special thanks to the incredible Warren Mott for meeting with us and sharing his vast knowledge of Columbus’ own Eddie Rickenbacker.
