Episodes

Ep. 304 Jackie Arklov

5/19/2022
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 asshole, 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

5/17/2022
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!

Duration:00:47:00

Ep. 302 Klaus Barbie

5/12/2022
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

5/10/2022
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!

Duration:01:18:53

Ep. 300 Danny Trejo

5/5/2022
Welcome to 300, dear listeners! We're dropping a real special episode for you today. Beloved actor and national treasure, Danny Trejo. For those of you thinking "but he's just an actor," before Danny became America's badass tío, he did some stuff. And well, just listen in and find out. Enjoy!

Duration:02:50:15

Ep. 299 Teddy Roosevelt Jr

5/3/2022
It's the week of our 300th episode and we managed to find something new for you, dear listeners. Today we have Teddy Roosevelt Jr, the son of a person we've previously covered, Teddy Roosevelt, obviously. You'd think it'd be pretty hard to come out from under that massive shadow, but boy did lil' Teddy find a way. Dude did some bonkers shit, so give a listen and enjoy!

Duration:01:14:20

Ep. 298 Karl Denke

4/28/2022
Well dear listeners, if you were hoping for a fucked up German today, then your prayers have been answered. We've got Karl Denke for you, a man who everyone agreed had some problems, but he was pretty ok. Right up until they finally found what was in his place. Strap in for this one, cuz it's gonna get gross. Enjoy!

Duration:00:47:06

Ep. 297 John Justin Bunting

4/26/2022
Today we're talking about Australian psychopath John Justin Bunting. This dude was probably the most incompetent serial killer I've ever heard of. But he just. Kept. Getting. Away. With. It. The only thing he was worse at than hiding his crimes was giving people nicknames. So tune in and join us in mocking this worthless Aussie. Enjoy!

Duration:01:06:46

Ep. 296 Prince Rupert of the Rhine

4/21/2022
Today we're going to talk about Prince Rupert of the Rhine. A pretty innocuous sounding name, for a dude that wound up being one of the most badass cavalrymen of his time. Also, he had a poodle and a monkey, and you just KNOW that crazy bastard taught the monkey how to ride the poodle into battle. Sure, there are zero sources saying it, but history is like jazz, it's all about the stuff they don't say. Enjoy!

Duration:01:00:27

Ep. 295 William Alexander Morgan

4/19/2022
William Alexander Morgan lived a pretty bonkers ass life, and one day while chilling in Miami he looked out across the water and saw an island, and decided that island needed some goddamn freedom, and that he was the man to bring it to them. Sure, looking back on it now we can say that was a real bad idea and he supported the wrong dude, but still a dope ass story. Enjoy!

Duration:01:18:00

Ep. 294 Frank Spisak

4/14/2022
Well, dear listeners, we have another awful garbage monster for you today. Frank Spisak had a lot of things going on, and they were all pretty awful. Luckily he wasn't that good at what he did so he got caught pretty quickly. But there's still something for everybody in this episode. Murder, cross dressing, Nazi shit, and some great attorney quotes. Enjoy!

Duration:00:48:22

Ep. 293 Ian Brady

4/12/2022
Well, where do I start with this one. Ian Brady was a real gigantic piece of shit, and I don't make that claim lightly. I mean, you know a person is trash when being a Nazi isn't even in their top 5 worst traits. But you know how we do here at LTF, so we had a lot of fun making fun of this loser of a serial killer. Tune in and enjoy!

Duration:01:10:49

Ep. 292 Varg Vikernes

4/7/2022
Alright you bloodthirsty monsters, you asked for him and now you're getting him. Today we're talking about garbage person and even worse musician, Varg Vikernes. A man so dedicated to racism he made his own version of D&D where instead of dungeons, it's racism and instead of dragons, it's even more racism. He also kinda sorta murdered a dude and destroyed some artifacts. Anyways, enjoy!

Duration:00:57:20

Ep. 291 Liver-Eating Johnston

4/5/2022
Today we're talking about a man shrouded in myth and legend, which is pretty unnecessary since the dude was a fucking badass for real. So why make up extra shit? I dunno, people are weird and stupid sometimes. Anyways, this psycho mountain lived like 4 peoples' lives worth during his time on Earth, and left behind a bit of an odd legacy years later. Enjoy!

Duration:00:45:10

Ep. 290 George Rowe

3/31/2022
It's time for another batshit biker, dear listeners! Though George Rowe is a bit different than the run of the mill, as you shall soon find out. The early parts are definitely par for course though. Shitty childhood, violence, drugs, racism. Then it gets a bit weird, but you'll probably find yourself rooting for him. So strap in, and enjoy!

Duration:01:45:54

Ep. 289 Yoo Young-Chul

3/29/2022
Today we're covering one of the rarest of scumnut pursuers, a South Korean serial killer. Yoo Young-Chul put in some serious work once he realized how much he loved killing. But boy did he wind up with one of the worst nicknames we've ever seen for a serial killer. It was also nice after all the times we've seen American cop incompetence to see somebody else fucking up. Enjoy!

Duration:00:52:05

Ep. 288 Teddy Roosevelt

3/24/2022
We're closing out anniversary week strong for you, dear listeners, with one of the most famous Americans who ever lived. Teddy motherfucking Roosevelt. A man who accomplished a ton in his life, especially considering how weak and fragile he was as a child. Not only did he do a bunch of badass, crazy shit, he also said some things that became famous quotes. Like, "speak slowly and have a big dick" or something like that. Tim covers it in the episode. Enjoy!

Duration:01:52:38

Ep. 287 The Kray Twins

3/22/2022
Welcome to anniversary week, dear listeners! It's been 3 whole years since the start of this podcast, and we're starting the week off with an episode that people have been waiting a while for, England's very own Kray twins. Reggie and Ronnie Kray lived bonkers lives and rose to a level of success and infamy that most gangsters can only dream of. Of course, sometimes things don't last. Enjoy!

Duration:01:51:27

Ep. 286 New Jack

3/17/2022
Today we have a man that I severely underestimated when it came to level of psychoticness. This dude brought a level of violence to wrestling that is frankly impressive, and the quotes. My god, the quotes. Everything that came out of his mouth was gold and he had no qualms saying exactly how he felt about any given thing. So get ready for a bonkers dude, and enjoy!

Duration:01:06:26

Ep. 285 Hans-Joachim Marseille

3/15/2022
Today we have a military guy that you're going to have a pretty tough time rooting for (I hope). Since even though he was an incredibly badass pilot, he was also a literal goddamn Nazi. Sure, maybe he had his doubts or felt bad every once in a while, but still kinda fuck him. But it means you can laugh at all the jokes at his expense guilt free, so enjoy!
