Today we'll be talking about one crazy Russian who embodies the saying, "If you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life." Unfortunately for a lot people, what Vasily Blokhin loved doing was executing people for the Soviet government. And boy was he good at his job. A real go getter. With synergy. And whatever other bullshit words corp…
 
Another fun one for you today, dear listeners. We're talking about a naval badass with an unfortunately Dutch ass name, Michiel de Ruyter. Michiel started out his career as a future badass as a humble seaman. From there he kept working his way up the ranks and winning battles against ships from all different countries like he wanted to collect the …
 
It's time to go back to the medieval days, dear listeners. It's been a while since we covered a good old fashioned shitkicker in full plate, so here we go. Edward the Black Prince may have been born of noble blood, but his dad didn't want to raise no pansy. So he made Edward go out and win his position on the battlefield. And boy did Edward prove h…
 
Well, dear listeners, we've had a lot of requests for this guy and we always said that he'll have his day, we're just waiting. And now that day is upon us. To commemorate a special occasion this week, we're bringing you Albert Fish. One of the grossest dudes to walk the Earth. His body count may not have been high, or it might have been astronomica…
 
This week we're taking another trip down under to talk about Australian gangster and inventor of the dad bod, Carl Williams. He put a lot of people in the ground, but also the cops' nickname for him was Fat Boy. So it's hard to decide if he's scary or not. Unless you're one of the people he killed, then I guess it's pretty easy to pick scary. Anywa…
 
Well, we certainly have something for you today, dear listeners. Manuel Blanco Romasanta seemed like mostly your average run of the mill Spanish dude. Sure, there was some weirdness surrounding his birth, and yea he may have killed some people. But mostly normal. Then things get super weird. We'll let you decide for yourselves if the stuff he claim…
 
We have another fun one for you today, dear listeners! And no trick this time, just good old fashioned Portuguese fun. You'll probably be able to figure out where Peter Francisco did his fighting pretty quickly, but I won't spoil it either way. I will say though, that there are some bonkers stories about the guy, and while a lot of it seems exagger…
 
Welcome back, dear listeners! This week we'll be taking a trip back to America's hat to talk about Montreal based mobster, Vito Rizzuto. He tried to handle his business in a different way than your usual mafia goon, and was known for lowering the violence during his tenure. Then some shit hit the fan and things changed, and Montreal went all Drowni…
 
We're closing out this week with a nice, relaxing episode. Just kidding, it's nightmares! Mary Bell's life story is just one tragedy after another, for pretty much ever. So it's not terribly shocking that she did the things she did. Though the age she did them may surprise you. And make sure you stick around til the end to learn about the worst god…
 
Today we have a nice, fun episode for you, dear listeners. Colin Anson wasn't his birth name, but he changed it for a pretty damn good reason. Then he used his new found identity to work the most noblest of professions, killing Nazis. This badass ran all around the western theater kicking fascist dicks into fascist dirt. Enjoy!…
 
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…
 
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 the…
 
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 h…
 
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 t…
 
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 angri…
 
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!By Jacob Trimmer and Tim Groeschel
 
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 giv…
 
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!…
 
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…
 
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 …
 
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…
 
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!…
 
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 de…
 
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…
 
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!…
 
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 som…
 
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…
 
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…
 
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…
 
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…
 
Today we're closing out the week with another visit from an increasingly drunk Matt Cole to talk about Henry Rathbone. An old timey man from the 1800s who had a pretty interesting life in his own right, but what made him famous was simply being around when another dude got blasted to death. Of course, the story doesn't end there. Enjoy!…
 
Background noise Matt Cole joins us again today to talk about a real fun piece of Ukrainian trash, Serhiy Tkach. Over the course of his life Serhiy got to play both sides of the law. First as a cop and then, well, you'll see. Toss in a couple fun twists and turns along the way, and you got yourself a whole scumnut good time. Enjoy!…
 
Today we have another fun doofus in the sports world, Bob Probert. A man who loved fighting, cocaine, and hockey. Probably in that order too. He lived one hell of a life and man is it a fun story. Also stick around for the outro to hear Tim become a sloppy, drunk mess. Because we're professionals here at the Let Them Fight Podcast. Enjoy!…
 
Today we have another Englishman for you, dear listeners. This time it's one of the limey pricks we kicked out of America during the Revolutionary War. 'Murica! Oh he did his damnedest to win the war, and he pulled some real douche moves along the way. He's also the inspiration for somebody that may surprise you, or not, who knows? Enjoy!…
 
Today we have quite the interesting story. Nicky Crane may have started out as just a simple violent, street level, racist asshole, but he built up a reputation that spanned at least London. And not only amongst his fellow violent racist assholes, but with a group that may surprise you. So strap in, 'cuz it's gonna get weird. Enjoy!…
 
Today we'll be going to the oft forgotten land of Tasmania, after a very short stop in Ireland. And we'll be talking about Alexander Pearce, a real bad criminal who was sent to the island for stealing shoes, the horror. And once there he managed to escape from an unescapable prison colony, twice! Well, kinda. There's more to the stories, so strap i…
 
Today we have some good, clean, eastern European fun for you, dear listeners. Jan Zizka was one badass Czechoslovakian. Which isn't a sentence I ever thought I'd be saying, but there it is since he revolutionized medieval warfare. And while the whole "he never lost a battle" rumor about him was bullshit, he won more than he should and minimized cas…
 
Stefanie Michele joins us again today to talk about one of Jacob's favorite topics, bikers. Specifically Lorne Campbell who lived one hell of a life and had no qualms including the bad stories along with the good when he talked about his life. Some familiar faces from past episodes also pop up. Enjoy!…
 
Today we're joined by friend of the show, Stefanie Michele, to tell her all about notable garbage person Seung-Hui Cho. After years of people around him ignoring red flags, upsetting behavior, and the worst goddamn poetry in the world, he went on to get the world's worst high score. Enjoy!By Jacob Trimmer and Tim Groeschel
 
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…
