It's been a minute since we've covered a wild west badass, so today we're bringing you Al Sieber, one of the most famous Indian fighters of the late 1800s. He was also one of the few white people that showed some respect to the Apache and was thus respected by them in return. Dude did pretty well for an uneducated German immigrant. Enjoy!…
 
Friend of the show Kyle Clark is back with us again to talk about King of the Gypsies, Bartley Gorman. Not only did he live a bonkers life, but it turns out being a badass runs in his blood. His story is chock full of violence, fantastic quotes, and gypsy shenanigans. Enjoy!By Jacob Trimmer and Tim Groeschel
 
We brought back friend of the show Kyle Clark to talk about Ray Lambert, a dude that lived through some of the worst shit World War 2 had to offer. And he did it all as a medic. Don't worry, he killed some shitbags along the way too, but his main focus was keeping American troops alive, and damn if he wasn't good at his job. Enjoy!…
 
Today we got a type of badass we haven't covered in a while, viking. Harald Hardrada traveled all over the old world and honed his killing abilities. First in Russia, and you know those psycho ice monsters know how to get killing done. Then he was off to fuck with Jaffar in Constantinople, and boy did he make bank doing that. From there, the world …
 
We got a long one for you today, dear listeners. We even thought we were gonna have to split this one into two episodes, but it all worked out and we were able to bring this shining beacon of good citizenry to you in just a single day. I'm kidding about that good citizenry part though, Peter Sutcliffe was a massive piece of shit. But man did he sta…
 
Today, dear listeners, we have a tale of great success, and even greater failure. A story both fun and sad. We're talking about Valentine Strasser. At one point he was the most important person in the entire country of Sierra Leone, and at another he was drinking palm wine in the slums since that's what you do when you're unemployed. In any event, …
 
Welcome to the first episode of the new year, dear listeners! We're bringing you another military man from up Canada way, a pilot this time. But Russell Williams is more than just that. There's a nice "fun" surprise twist in this episode, like an M. Night Shyamalan movie! Here's hoping you find it more like The Sixth Sense than The Happening, but w…
 
Welcome to the last episode of 2021, dear listeners. We have another man with three names for you, which historically means prepare for awfulness. But this one is blessedly free of any of that, he's just a plain and simple badass. I mean, sure he kind of fought for some bad people, but he did a lot of badass stuff and didn't really do anything shit…
 
Today we're talking about another Joseph, but this one was dope as hell. He found probably the bonkerest way to deal with all the stress leading up to Operation Market Garden during World War 2, then had to deal with that whole cluster fuck of a battle. But then he got to take a nice tour of the European countryside before making his way back to En…
 
Well, dear listeners, (one of) you asked for it, so you got it. Today's episode is Josef Fritzl and well, he is a monster of a piece of shit. His story has quite a few twists and turns along the way and around every corner is another nightmare. He also takes the grand prize for scumbaggiest way to defend his crimes that I've ever heard. Also, he sh…
 
Today we have a real treat for you, dear listeners. A real pipe hitting badass named Rick Rescorla, and the only person in history nicknamed "Hardcore" and they weren't a putz. Aside from Hardcore Holly, may his career rest in peace. Anyways, this dude was awesome and while he kept taking work where he was kinda fighting for a bad cause, he left wh…
 
Welcome back, dear listeners. We continue this week of charming individuals with Ken McElroy, a man beloved in his community. Nah, just kidding, he's a giant piece of shit just like the last guy was and everyone hated him. Turns out, years of stealing, beatings, and threats does not make people want to be your friend. Ken answers the question of, "…
 
Well, dear listeners, we have a real garbage monster for you today. Charles Rodman Campbell (three names is always a bad sign) was what is referred to as a revenge killer, but man does his reason for wanting revenge suck. This episode also features one of the most egregious failings by the criminal justice system we've ever covered, but it isn't th…
 
Today we bring you a man you will happily root against as we tell you his story. Robert Jay Mathews may not have been a good person by any metric, but what he lacked in that department he more than made up for in crazy. When he had successfully recruited some likeminded crazies to his cause, he took to the rural area of the Pacific Northwest to sta…
 
Today we're covering renowned Indian fighter, Samuel Brady. I'm not saying the Brady family hated Native Americans, but the back and forth between the two groups made the Hatfields and McCoys look like a petty squabble. There's a lot of fun in this episode: scalping, great escapes, and the most unique use of a campfire I've heard before. Enjoy!…
 
It's time for another trip to Japan, dear listeners. This time we're going to be talking about notable crazy person, Sada Abe, who answers the question, "What happens when the dick is TOO good?" Horror. That's what happens. But her exploits made her a bit of a celebrity/nightmare in Japan, to such an extent that Asa Akira played her in a porno. So …
 
Today we're talking about badass Filipina, Nieves Fernandez. When the Japanese showed up in the Philippines during WW2 and started taking over and doing all their evil shit, she took the quote, "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats," to heart and took a break from teachin…
 
Happy turkey day, dear listeners. After you're done stuffing your face and arguing with your family, kick back and enjoy this episode on badass German, Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck. I know, I'm as surprised as you that I'm calling a German a badass, but he was pretty dope. The whole colonization of Africa thing was a bit...not so dope, but given the tim…
 
What can I say about Canadian cult leader Roch Theriault except, ew. When a dude shits on people as punishment and that doesn't even come close to the worst thing about him, there's really no better way to describe him than "gross." He's also a dude whose appearance is way too on the nose for the kind of person he is. While a lot of the things he d…
 
Welcome back, dear listeners! Today we are talking about a real grade A piece of shit, William Calley. A lot of bad stuff was done over the course of the Vietnam War, and Calley was right at the heart of one of the instances where some bad stuff occurred. He should have just stuck with being an incompetent officer instead of graduating to full blow…
 
I know most of the time when you think about the Netherlands you don't think about criminals, murder, and crazy kidnapping plots, but that's exactly what we have for you today. Willem Holleeder even had a dumb nickname like so many American criminals. Of course nobody was going to tell him that it was dumb, since he was a goddamn murderer and prett…
 
Today we bring you another trip to jolly old England, but this time it's to talk about some biker mayhem. Daniel "Snake Dog" Boone may not be the biggest name in the biker world, but he was there for many of its significant moments. He runs into some people we've previously talked about, and is there for some stuff that will be in future regular an…
 
Another round of badasses starts today, and we're kicking things off with Marie-Therese Figueur AKA le petit Sans-Gene, "the little unconstrained one." From a very early age she decided that simply existing in France would not be enough of a life for her, oh no. She wanted to get out on the battlefield and kill the hell out of some people. And that…
 
In today's episode we'll be covering another big fan of the scumnut, Gary Michael Heidnik. He may not have displayed all the red flags in his youth, but he certainly had more than enough that someone should have kept an eye on him. Instead he got to spread his crazy wings and fly, and become the grossest amateur prison warden. Enjoy!…
 
It's time for another trip to Florida, after a short stop in Chicago, to talk about one of the OG cocaine cowboys, Jorge "Rivi" Ayala. Dude loved him some crime, especially murder. But even this psychopath with a penchant for machine gunning people seemed sane when compared to his boss, and he's proof that even hitmen get micromanaged. Anyways, thi…
 
Today we'll be giving Ellsworth "Bumpy" Johnson, the godfather of Harlem, his due. He may have started his life as just a simple country lad, but by the end of his life he was a massive part of the history of New York City, especially Harlem. "Bumpy" lived a bonkers life, from fighting the mob to yelling at magazine editors, with some fun cameos fr…
 
It's time for another Civil War guy on the Confederate side. This time we're talking about "Stonewall" Jackson, who was a pretty great soldier, but also a racist that loved slavery so not really a good person. He was also apparently weird as hell and ridiculously over the top with his religion. Anyways, he did a lot of shit in his life so join us i…
 
Today we'll be talking about John Brown, a man who was so fervently anti-slavery that at one point even Frederick Douglass was all, "Damn, bro. You're pretty extreme." John Brown is famous for a small paragraph we all had to read one time in our history books in school but they just don't do his whole bonkers life justice with that little coverage.…
 
In today's episode we went back to our big bag of requested scumnut creators to pull out Earle Leonard Nelson. If you've been listening to us for a while you know what three first names means, an awful garbage monster. And you'd be right. Earle spent his life traveling around the US, and a little bit in Canada, proving what a "badass" he was by cho…
 
Today we'll be traveling to the oft ignored country of Paraguay to talk about a type of person we haven't covered in a while, a dickhead dictator. Alfredo Stroessner did a lot of dirty shit in his days as evil despot of the country, and we're here to tell you about all of it. And what is a South American fascist regime without a little help from th…
 
Today we're covering a true rarity, a badass Italian. Pre-World War 2 he ran all over Spain fighting commies and North Africa kicking in the teeth of various locals from horseback. Then things got kinda wonky when World War 2 kicked off proper and he found himself pretty well abandoned. So he decided it was time to fight the British. While also kin…
 
Friends of the show Dave Apkarian and Matt Cole join us again to talk about a man with the most old timey American name ever, Bud Day. Also, one hell of a survival story. People that fought in Vietnam pretty much all went through some heavy shit, but one group went through a next level shit storm, POWs. Turns out the Vietnamese weren't very kind to…
 
Today we're bringing in two previous guests, Dave Apkarian and Matt Cole, to talk about garbage monster/walking nightmare, Tommy Lynn Sells. He may not be the worst person we've talked about on this podcast, but he certainly gave it the old college try. And of course we got some quotes from the man himself at the end to let him personally convey wh…
 
Now, when you hear that a man is a crazy religious member of the East India Company you might not think he's going to be a badass. But you'd be wrong. John Nicholson might not be the best person, seeing as how he played a significant role in the colonization of India by the British, but I'll be damned if he didn't kick some ass along the way. Enjoy…
 
Today we're talking about a man who loved killing so much he decided to fight in two world wars, Lou Diamond. He also refused being promoted from enlisted to officer because it would probably mean less killing. He was such an incredible badass that a Marine who just heard his life story decided to name his son after him. Enjoy!…
 
Friend of the show Joey Kuriki joins us again today. This time to talk about his fellow countrymen, Issei Sagawa. Issei was born fairly well cursed and wound up in a little tiny body and with very creepy urges. Which you know he acted on at some point since we're talking about him. He's another guy that has a drastically lower body count than a lot…
 
Today we're joined by friend of the show Joey Kuriki for a trip down under to talk about infamous outlaw, Daniel "Mad Dog" Morgan. Danny boy ran/rode horses all around New South Wales visiting all the goofiest named places so that he could rob people, or shoot them, or force them to make him breakfast. Whatever he was feeling that day really. He ma…
 
Today we're talking about the only thing British that's better than the American version, Charles Bronson. Not his born name, but I'm pretty sure the American Bronson wasn't named that at birth either, oh well. His life started out normal enough, then fairly rapidly descended into a beautiful madness. Despite not killing anybody, he's one of the mo…
 
Today we have a real fun monster for you, dear listeners. We're talking about Uday Hussein. And if you thought his dad Saddam was bad, well you'd be right. But this guy was also a giant piece of shit. Imagine if you will, all the wonderful personality of a douchey trust fund kid combined with the sadistic streak of an evil dictator, then wrap it up…
 
Today we have a story that adds more evidence to the fact that Italy sucks militarily (as if we needed more evidence). Sir John Hawkwood was English as fuck, but got a taste for fighting Italians so he decided to keep doing it. He basically terrorized the whole country and really mastered the art of extortion. Even popes paid him to not fuck their …
 
Today we're taking a trip to the country with the most garbage names per capita, Poland, to talk about a dude that loved killing people from horseback. Casimir Pulaski ran around Europe fighting the Russians every chance he got, and honestly not doing all that well. He was great at drumming up support and training cavalrymen, not so great at the wh…
 
Today we have another cultist for you, Robert Rozier AKA Neariah Israel. This guy had a shot at being a professional football player and decided he'd rather go join up with Yahweh ben Yahweh in Florida as part of a cult that's basically part Nation of Islam and part Christian Identity. Yet another group trying to claim they're the real Jews and the…
 
Today we're bringing you a good old fashioned Australian garbage monster. Ivan Milat may not sound like an Aussie name, because it's not, he was half Croatian. So none of what he does should surprise anyone. His life really showcases how dangerous it can be to backpack through certain parts of the world. And how dangerous it can be to keep knickkna…
 
Today's person of discussion is Bruce Lindahl. And it's hard to figure out if he was a rapey murderer or a murdering rapist, but either way he was super not a good dude. Which you can pretty much figure out just from looking at his picture. Got them creeper eyes. Come tune in and listen to us make fun of this douchebag and experience the schadenfre…
 
Today we're covering a famous Brit with one of the highest kill counts we've seen on this podcast. Of course, all those kills were state sanctioned since he was an executioner so he never had to serve any prison time for any of them. But hey, a kill is a kill even if you're not doing it for a scumnut. He had a very particular system and methodology…
 
Today we're talking about The Poughkeepsie Killer, Kendall Francois. A dude that loved strangling hookers and living in his own filth. To such an extent that people just straight up called him Stinky. He holds the distinct honor of being the grossest living conditions I've read about since Richard Chase. Also this is one of the few stories where th…
 
What can one say about one of the world's most famous writers that he hasn't already drunkenly typed onto a page at some point in his career? Ernest Hemingway may not be the first name you think of when you think violence, but he managed to make it part of his life in a pretty spectacular way. And also come on, it's Ernest fucking Hemingway, you kn…
 
It's time for round two with our friend Kyle Clark, this time to talk about Thomas-Alexandre Dumas. This dude kicked some major ass for France. Even with all the racism over the fact that he was black, he was so good at soldiering and killing people that he still rose in fame and rank. Hell, he was such a badass that his kid spent his whole life ba…
 
Boy have we got an episode for you today, dear listeners. Friend of the show, and fellow comedian, Kyle Clark joins us to talk about Chuck Zito. A man who went from humble beginnings in New York, to the kind of guy who has celebrities writing blurbs for the back of his autobiography. And of course there are plenty of beatings and hilarious incident…
 
We're joined again by friend of the show Shaun Arredondo for round two, this time to talk about notable racist and bare knuckle fighter, William Poole, better known as Bill the Butcher. Not because he was a butcher by trade though. More so because he loved leaving people as a bloody mess. Preferably the Irish because well, he hated them like only s…
