Episodes

Ep. 151 Yevdokiya Zavaliy and Mariya Oktyabrskaya

12/1/2020
That's right, you read that alphabet soup in the title. We're going back to Russia. This time to cover a couple war heroes though. These two hardcore Russian shitkickers didn't have a ton of details on their battles, so we decided to combine them into one glorious Soviet episode. Yevdokiya and Mariya joined up to fight the Nazis in WW2 for different reasons, but they both left their mark in significant ways and showed that, as Jay-Z said, ladies is pimps too. Enjoy!

Ep. 150 Joseph Barboza

11/26/2020
Happy Thanksgiving, dear listeners! And what better way to commemorate this day in American history than by talking about a man who loved killing and had an unpredictable temper? Joseph Barboza may have been Portuguese but this dumb, Bostonion slab of muscle and hate truly captured the American spirit. Also, I don't know what it is about various organized crime groups and their love for doing shit to people's dick and balls but hey, knock that shit out. Weirdos. Anyways, go feast then come...

Ep. 149 Delphine LaLaurie

11/24/2020
Today we'll be visiting a land that god forgot, Louisiana. And we're gonna be talking about uppity Louisianan rich person, Delphine LaLaurie. She was a member up the upper crust of society, and that should clue you in to the fact that she was also kind of an evil bitch. She gets into some shenanigans and boy do we have fun making jokes about it. Also pay no attention to that part in the beginning where we audibly forget how many episodes of this show we've done. Enjoy!

Ep. 148 Christopher Wilder

11/19/2020
Normally when we have a mustache on this show it's an epic, badass mustache. But today we have a sad mustache, Christopher Wilder. This asshole Australian decided that rather than stick around and kill people in his own country, he'd come to America and do it. Complete with his weird, homemade bug zapper, he hade an insane trip around the country shooting and stabbing his way into the attention of law enforcement, and all of our hearts of course. Enjoy!

Ep. 147 Billy Bob Walkabout

11/17/2020
Hello again there, dear listeners. Today we'll be telling you about Vietnam veteran Billy Bob Walkabout. Don't let the name fool you, even though it sounds like an Australian white trash tourist trap, this Cherokee badass joined the army right outta high school, rose up the ranks, and kicked some major Vietnamese ass. Then suffered through the usual ailments from that war, but he talked about it and gave us some insight into what the soldiers had to endure after coming back home.

Duration:00:36:34

Ep. 146 Pedro Alonso Lopez

11/12/2020
Welcome back, dear listeners! Today we're gonna tell you all about Pedro Alonso Lopez, the Monster of the Andes. If you can't guess by that nickname, dude was not a very good person, and he loved murderin'. He put up a crazy high body count and had some divine help along the way, you'll get what I mean when you hear it. And if you're worried, don't! Because there's definitely a happy ending. Seriously. There's no way the law enforcement agencies of South America would ever let us down,...

Ep. 145 Louise Peete

11/10/2020
Today we'll be sticking around America to talk about murderous thief, wannabe rich person, and member of KISS without makeup Louise Peete. The amount of cop and neighbor incompetence is yet again, infuriating. What's worse is the amount of people who killed themselves over this broad. Join us in this exercise in frustration and yell, "Fuck this bitch!" at all the nonsense and shenaniganry that she gets away with. Enjoy!

Duration:00:40:25

Ep. 144 Subutai

11/5/2020
Today we'll be talking about another Mongol, this time he's not a biker though, he's a proper Mongolian ass kicker. Subutai pretty much terrified every single person who saw him coming their way, and with good reason. Dude tore a bloody swathe through so many countries that I'm pretty sure his descendants are still getting royalties from the tribute payments. Also if any of our listeners know how to draw, I super want to see fat Subutai riding around in his glorious, triumphant chariot of...

Ep. 143 Soapy Smith

11/3/2020
Today we have a man who knows what really keeps the world ticking, running scams and paying off politicians and cops. Soapy Smith, and don't worry we explain why that's his name, ran empires in several cities, knew several famous people, possibly killing one of them, and was even congratulated by a sitting president. The old west was a weird time in American history, but damn if there aren't some great stories that came out of it. Enjoy!

Duration:00:58:49

Ep. 142 Koose Veerappan

10/29/2020
Today we're going back to the land of India to talk about notorious poacher and murderer, Koose Veerappan. If you're listening on a platform that isn't showing you the picture of this guy for some reason, look him up right now. He has the most glorious mustache we will ever have on our podcast. He also killed a fuck ton of people. Like, he even put the Ukrainian dudes to shame. And he did it all while also making a ton of money off of elephant ivory and sandalwood, and I love a good...

Duration:00:47:24

Ep. 141 Vercingetorix

10/27/2020
Today we're covering a pre-France Frenchy by the name of Vercingetorix, which is Latin for "this word will give you victory in Scrabble" I think. He was a champion of the Gauls and decided he wanted to hike up some Roman skirt armor and kick their bowl cut hairdo dicks right into the dirt. His army even goes toe to sandaled toe with Julius Caesar himself. Though knowing history at all means you'll know how that winds up, he still lives a badass life. Enjoy!

Duration:00:42:36

Ep. 140 Fred West

10/22/2020
Well, dear listeners, our break from the garbage monsters didn't last long. Today we're talking about Fred West, who is definitely up there in the hall of fame for scumbags, and looks like the British version of Bob from That 70s Show. The upside to this episode is at least we got to showcase how incompetent the authorities are in England, so it's not just us here in America that suck at stopping evil. Also, the Scottish dude was the best person in this whole deal. Anyways, enjoy!

Duration:01:02:54

Ep. 139 Freddie and Truus Oversteegen, and Hannie Schaft

10/20/2020
Today we have three badass women to balance out some of the awful people we usually talk about. Freddie Oversteegen, her sister Truus, and Hannie Schaft were in Europe when the Nazis started fucking with all the countries they could. And rather than sit back and take it, like all the politicians in the Netherlands did, these broads fought back with enough fury, and results, to make Aldo the Apache giggle with delight. Enjoy the story of these teenage asskickers!

Duration:00:53:32

Ep. 138 Anatoly Onoprienko

10/15/2020
What can I say about today's person, Anatoly Onoprienko, except, yeesh. And holy shit was he good at killing. Turns out Ukrainians make way better murderers than we do here in America. This dude just never seemed to miss, except maybe one time. Maybe. It's not even confirmed. He also brought us another round of courtroom batshittery, and some insight into just how broken the judicial system is in former Soviet Bloc nations. Enjoy the bonkers shenanigans of this semi-Russian!

Duration:00:46:58

Ep. 137 Leonarda Cianciulli

10/13/2020
Today's person of interest has a face even her mother couldn't love, which is at least somewhat understandable given the circumstances of her birth. But anyways, we returned to the land of lasagna to tell you about Leonarda Cianciulli and the secret ingredient in her soap. It's love! Just kidding, it is in fact the polar opposite of love. Pure, beautiful, unfiltered hate. Enjoy this foot faced pasta monster and all of her grossness!

Ep. 136 Albert Hicks (Guests: Real Rich and Dub)

10/8/2020
Hello, dear listeners! We're joined again by the hilarious duo of Real Rich and Dub to talk about kind of pirate, Albert Hicks. After a pretty not so great childhood, he went on to live the life from that old joke about the army. Travel to exotic, distant lands where you'll meet exciting, unusual people, and kill them. Dude was legitimately a crazy person, but man was he fun. Also here's a poll for anybody who reads this, is "monkey jacket" racist? What say ye, dear listeners? Enjoy!

Duration:01:03:28

Ep. 135 Scott "Junior" Ereckson (Guests: Real Rich and Dub)

10/6/2020
Today we're joined by friends of the show, and fellow podcasters, Real Rich and Dub. We had a great time talking with them about Scott "Junior" Ereckson, notable ex-con and former national president of the Mongols MC. Way better than Doc Cavazos if you remember that shithead from one of our early episodes. Jail/prison politics, possibly an accidental murder, ass marshmallows, and Rich blaming Tim for Jacob being fat, we have it all on this episode, enjoy!

Duration:02:19:37

Ep. 134 Paddy Mayne

10/1/2020
Today we return to one of our favorite time periods, World War 2, to talk about batshit insane, pipe hitting, shitkicker Paddy Mayne. You can tell somebody lived a life when fighting for the Scottish Commandos was the least bonkers thing he did. This Irishman sets some impressive records and plays a good amount of fun little pranks as he develops into the Axis killing monster he was destined to become. Enjoy!

Duration:01:14:18

Ep. 133 Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

9/29/2020
We're back to tell you all about Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. And with a name like that you just know he could only be a Civil War officer. Luckily this one was on the correct side and if you can see the picture of him, you can tell by his glorious mustache that he kicked the rebel dicks into the dirt. So kick back and enjoy the story of how this dweeb ass nerd became a badass shitkicker for the Union!

Duration:01:00:55

Ep. 132 Ramzi Yousef

9/24/2020
Something new for you today, dear listeners, as we talk about comedically inept terrorist Ramzi Yousef. Like, so hilariously bad at it that honestly we might have been ok with just giving him a pass criminally speaking. But boy did he sure give it his best effort, which kinda makes it sadder really. He is to terrorist what the Houston police department is to catching serial killers. But boy is he a joy to make fun of. Enjoy!
