The loser takes it all

In a world of fat cats, top bananas and first bus, two comedians have set out to celebrate the underdogs and ultimate failures.

Weekly episodes feature the Ben Van der Velde, Barry McStay and guest discussing the worst something, from Astronauts to board games, legal defences to hip-hop albums.

Like going to a pub with three excitable puppies having completed a marathon wiki-walk, it is hilarious, informative and uplifting- for the simple reason that there is always someone worse than you.

An absolute gem of a podcast

History, laughing at failure, and two excellent comedians having fun - what could be better? I stumbled across this through a complete fluke and fell in love with it. Give it a go - you won’t regret it.
