Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam join Take Two with some conversations starters.

This week they tell the story of a 63-year-old woman who, in 1903, became the first person to ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel.

They also talk about the North American Wife Carrying Championship...

...and a jacket designed to give wearers the sensation they are being hugged.
