Ep. 306 Richard Speck
Ahh, Richard Speck. This guy is a real piece of shit. And boy was he inept at being a criminal, don't let the body count fool you. Also, I won't say why, so as to not spoil anything, but I honestly don't know whether it's worse to be near him as a bird or a nurse. Strap in for this ride, dear listeners, and I guarantee you won't see the end of this story coming. Enjoy!
Ep. 305 Thomas "Mad Mike" Hoare
Today we're talking about this tiny Irish nutball who decided to become the poster child for people who crank it to Soldier of Fortune. "Mad Mike" decided that being an accountant was boring, so he skipped a couple steps and jumped right to mercenary working in Africa. He had a pretty good run at success, and one huge failure. And you know what they say, "you f**k just one goat..." Enjoy!
Ep. 304 Jackie Arklov
We have a bit of a confusing guy for you today, dear listeners. Jackie Arklov is in many ways just like every other neo-Nazi. A war criminal, mentally unstable, an a*****e, so on and so forth. But he is also kind of, well, black. And sure, he explains why as a black dude he self identified as a neo-Nazi, but it certainly doesn't clear it up since he gives a few different reasons. But oh well, it was fun to make fun of him. Enjoy!
Ep. 303 Wlodzimierz Krzyzanowski
You know that alphabet soup nightmare of a name in the title can only mean one thing, we're talking about someone from Poland today. This guy will never find a mini license plate in a tourist trap with his name on it, but he did play a significant role in American history. If you're wondering why you weren't taught about him in school, go look at that name again. Enjoy!
Ep. 302 Klaus Barbie
The week of shitbags continues today with Klaus Barbie, the "Butcher of Lyon." What can we say about this Nazi scumbag that a French military tribunal hasn't already? Well, probably a lot actually since they have to be somewhat professional. Anyways, listen in to this garbage monster's life story, with occasional breaks so that Jacob can rant angrily while Tim cackles with antisemitic glee. Enjoy!
Ep. 301 Paul Bernardo
After the fun of the week of episode 300, we're back with another request from you animals, and this one is a doozy. Paul Bernardo, AKA The Scarborough Rapist, if that name lets you know what you're in for, was a real piece of shit. So make sure you strap in and expect a bit of grimeyness on this one. Enjoy!
Easy to listen to, plus fun history
I had to leave my Spotify app and google how to leave a review, but I got here.
I like history and listening to podcasts as I play games or clean, but I also have the attention span of a hyperactive squirrel, I also enjoy when hosts have humorous personalities; it helps keep me interested.
This show checks all the boxes, and never disappoints.
P.S. I could probably come up with a list of people I’d like to see you cover, but I figured I could recommend just one. Have you thought about doing Mary Bell?
Can’t be antisemitic due to one of them being Jewish, but that won’t stop them from trying
Congrats on 300!
My favorite podcast to listen to at work and make everyone leave me alone and wonder about my sanity. Congrats on 300 episodes! Also I messaged Danny on Instagram about this episode so hopefully he listens to it. Keep being funny, broke, fat guys.
