About Worst Foot Forward

Hallo you marvellous lover of podcasts, untapped history and heroic failure!  Thanks for coming to our Patreon page.  

For the past couple of years we (stand-up comic Ben Van der Velde and writer/actor Barry McStay) have been releasing podcasts all about the worst things in the world, featuring guests as diverse as professors of neuroscience, wrestling promoters, sommeliers, bakers, doctors, magicians, politicians and burlesque dancers!  We do our very best to mine the history books for undiscovered stories of full of comedy, tragedy, pathos and pure daftness, as well as asking some very talented people about what they think their greatest weaknesses are.

Like everyone in the podcast world, we put our heart, soul and time into researching, recording and editing the pod and would love you to get involved.  We're eager to keep recording, as well as doing exclusive special episodes about some of our favourite discoveries which drill deeper into their stories.  Most of all, we really want to turn all of our research into a cracking book.  

We'd love you to help us out and donate just a couple of quid a month to us so we can keep celebrating history's glorious losers and enjoy a slice of scadenfreude pie!

When we hit 80 patrons we'll start recording a monthly video newsletter, exclusively for Patreon supporters: The Fourth Foot.

Each month we'll share our Top 5 Fails, plus any of our favourite suggestions sent to us by you.
