11 Strangest Phobias People Really Have - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

We've got another new episode of 11 Points Countdown today.

I'm joined by a smashingly lovely British chap named Alastair James Murden as we count down the results of a poll on the strangest real-life phobias. (Alastair also co-hosted the episode on the 11 best things about American restaurants. Was that filmed on the exact same day as today's episode, just mere minutes apart? No one can say for certain.)
