    Outrageous and interesting with irreverent humor and extensively researched stories. These guys are highly goofy and although the banter is annoying to some if you like your commentary uncensored and funny you will appreciate LPOTL. There are certain episodes I have avoided because I just can’t see the humor in the subject (9-11), but there are still so many great episodes to choose from. Jack the Ripper (in several parts) is GOLD.

    I’ve stumbled onto this podcast a few years ago, while I was still working the daily grind. I was looking into paranormal podcasts, as I was in need of entertainment while I was working a deadend job I hated, and I like paranormal, true crime and just plain weird stuff. I have a very special sense of humour. Like, very weird, and I can say that it was an instant hit with theses guys. I’ve been listening regularly every week, ever since. Every Friday evening I await patiently for the new episode to drop. They also recently added side stories every week too, were they tackle more current subject, and news worthy events. They actually have their own Network now, with many many interesting and diverse subject, but all tied up by silly humour. It’s run by a bunch of comedians after all. I even went to see them perform live a few years back. at Just for Laughs in Montreal. It was great fun. Subject matter is always changing, but it’s always within the realm of true crime, ghost stuff, aliens, cults, ect. The weird stuff. Creme de la Creme. They usually do multiple episodes on the same subject matter, It’s very well researched, very well assembled, and presented. It’s certainly not sugar coated, and it’s not for everyone, Henry can be a bit too much for some, but he’s certainly the light of the show. Ben, Marcus and Henry are doing a very very fine job. To this day, my favorite podcast in the realm of true crime stuff because, although very serious in research and facts, it’s everything but in presentation. It’s a riot, really.
