Dale Dougherty and Bill Gurstelle of Make Magazine visit the Punkin Chunkin World Championships in Millsboro, Delaware. In part two, we listen to a couple of centrifugal throwers: Bad to the Bone and JD Lazarus. Then we meet one of the Yankees behind Yankee Siege, Steve Seigars, a dentist from New Hampshire whose team has built a record-setting 55-foot trebuchet.
