    Friends. It’s time we said goodbye—at least until some Qatari billionaire offers to foot the bill. But first, we need to make an episode so bad that no one will miss us. And also figure out who the biggest loser we’ve ever covered is.

    #69 - The Stanford Prison Experiment

    One day The American Journal of Losers will be taught in high school classes as the textbook example of the depths of misery to which human beings will sink, but for now that honor goes to the Stanford Prison Experiment: Phillip Zimbardo's wacky summer camp for wayward boys.  Adam McShane, Joey Bednarski, and Cosmo Nomikos are stand up comedians based out of Chicago, IL.AJL is part of the Lincoln Lodge Podcast Network: https://www.thelincolnlodge.com/podcasts

    #68 - Betty and Barney Hill

    #68 - Betty and Barney Hill

    Eek! The A-SCARE-ican GORE-nal of BOO-sers has taken over once again! This time with strange little gray men from outside this planet who are here to stick to metal objects in our holes. Good thing the three brave hosts of the podcast can be described as “skeptical to the point of being uninterested in this story”. Adam McShane, Joey Bednarski, and Cosmo Nomikos are stand up comedians based out of Chicago, IL.AJL is part of the Lincoln Lodge Podcast Network: https://www.thelincolnlodge.com/podcasts

    #66 - Centralia, Pennsylvania

    Lives are risked, secrets are revealed, and friendships are betrayed on this exciting, no holds barred, episode about the near-ghost town of Centralia, PA; whose five remaining residents make their home above a fire that has been burning for over sixty years!

    #65 - The Black Sox Scandal

    #65 - The Black Sox Scandal

    If you ever hear a bad episode of this podcast, it’s because we made it bad on purpose to get an illegal cut in from some guy named “Money Malone” or whatever; just like the Chicago White Sox did in 1919 when they intentionally threw the World Series to profit off an illegal sports betting apparatus. Adam McShane, Joey Bednarski, and Cosmo Nomikos are stand up comedians based out of Chicago, IL.AJL is part of the Lincoln Lodge Podcast Network: https://www.thelincolnlodge.com/podcasts

    #64 - Bible Losers Roundup!

    Check out Cosmo's Music here! No need to put away your Bible after your pre-podcast prayer because this week we're doing a classic listicle style episode about the top three biggest losers in the Good Book! Or at least, the ones that Joey remembers from Catholic school. Source: Da Bible Adam McShane, Joey Bednarski, and Cosmo Nomikos are stand up comedians based out of Chicago, IL.AJL is part of the Lincoln Lodge Podcast Network: https://www.thelincolnlodge.com/podcasts

This is the first time I’ve legit laughed out loud in about 3 years. If these guys play anywhere in Chicago, I’d def go see them. I honestly don’t have any idea why I find them so funny but they are honestly so funny.
