Sea Orphan: The Story of the Duperrault Family

The Internet Says it’s True

Nov 13 2023 • 32 mins

When the Captain of a yacht was rescued in the Atlantic Ocean, he told a story about how everyone else perished when the yacht sank. Then one of the other members of the party - an 11-year old girl - was rescued and told the truth. And the story that little Terry Jo Duperrault told was very different than the Captain's. She had experienced a harrowing scene of murder, then lived at sea for days before her rescue. In this episode, we tell the story of the Duperrault Family and the little girl who came to be known as the "Sea Orphan." Then we play the quiz with my wife Alison!
