In a culture obsessed with winning, "American Loser" is the podcast that puts the spotlight firmly on second place. Comedian KP Burke and his handsome Father dive head first into the true stories of the biggest losers in American History. Our theme song is "American Loser" by the supremely talented Robert Rolfe Feddersen. All episodes recorded at A Shared Universe Podcast Studio in Eatontown, New Jersey
America's Last Pirate: John Ashley
The original #FloridaMan, John Ashley is part Jesse James, part Robin Hood but all FLORIDA bay-bay. His lifelong feud with Sheriff Baker has all the makings of Hollywood. LP, Kahuna and Eric Albert all take turns shocking us with more weird details on the "King of the Everglades". Enjoy!
Camp Siegfried and Hitler's New York Nazis
Nazis in New York? Sounds crazy but it happened! Learn all about the wild origins of the Nazi party in America. What started off as just a fun summer camp in Long Island later filled Madison Square Garden with a rally that most people would like to forget. Eric Albert joins us and drinks too much (shocking).
Rockets and Witchcraft...the Jack Parsons story
Different style episode here today but the topic requires it. Andy Highroller and Jack Steiger return to the show to talk with us about Jack Parsons. Parsons is pure chaos to try and categorize, he's a mad genius, rocket scientist, cult leader, friend of Aleister Crowley and practitioner of the occult....oh yeah, he also kinda helped us start NASA. ENJOY!
The Kelly Family Killers
You can't be together with all your family this holiday...just thank God you aren't staying with the Kelly Family instead though. A family of Serial Killers that used their cozy "Tavern" as the site of nearly a dozen murders, the Kelly family "Fiends" brought back horrid memories of the "Bloody Benders"...another murdering family in the area. We cover both in detail just in time for Christmas! Enjoy!
Bull Simons and the Son Tay Raiders
The most daring, successful and ballsy rescue mission in American history was actually a tangible failure. It involves Green Berets, Bomber Squadrons, Attack Helicopters and gritty World War 2 Vets hell bent on rescuing American POWs from the jungles of Vietnam. Enjoy this bizarre tale of American Military excellence with "mixed" results.
Tragedy and Mayhem at Altamont
A concert so wild that the Grateful Dead decided to bail....the Rolling Stones, Hells Angels and 300,000 fans, many on heavy drugs like acid and meth....what could possibly go wrong. This story seems like a bad trip come to life because it is....Andy Highroller joins us again while we talk about the death of the innocence of the hippie movement in style...enjoy.

If you’re looking for a historical podcast that’s funny and enlightening, look no further. The topics are interesting and it’s funny. Highly recommend.
Was looking for a history podcast that was funny two weeks ago. Ran across this podcast and I love it. I listen to roughly about two or three a day depending on the episodes. Some of the information is not 100% accurate but pretty close. Highly recommend listening to it. Fun and educational.
