The Last Podcast about the Left is a weekly podcast featuring comedian and podcast sponsor Ben Kissel, podcast producer and writer Marcus Parks, and comic and actor Henry Zebrowski (who joined in the next installment), all of whom are longtime friends.

Released every Friday the episodes are generally 1 hour in length, with the hosts exploring the horrors of the world both real and imagined.

In the post-Trump era, with a reality TV celebrity holding our country’s highest office, stories like Kissel’s are becoming more common — droves of young people are getting involved and seeking public office. On the one hand, the 2016 election showed us that applicants don’t have to be capable to win. On the flip side, it was a rude awakening that the dissatisfied have to take politics.

Enter Ben Kissel. In his « day job, » Kissel — along with co-hosts Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski — hosts a true-crime-meets-paranormal humor podcast. Last Podcast on the Left is ranked second on iTunes’ humor graph and attracts fans across the world. But like many dismayed young voters, Kissel chose 2016 as a wake-up call to run for office.

As someone who’s been listed in podcasts and on the radio for eight years, Kissel acknowledges that a great deal of people hesitate to run for office for fear of criticism or using their previous exposed. His advice? Own it. In the end, he states, everybody has their own past, and as long as you « treat the Republicans with humanity and respect, » voters may « accept each of the flaws that go with that individual, as long as that individual is ready to accept them. »

Like the criminals he covers Last Podcast, Kissel says with a laugh, « lots of politicians are sociopaths with no ideology. Obviously not all these, but we need the people that have scruples, morals, and are concerned about their own failings. »

For somebody who faces the worst of humankind with dark humor at his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel really feels in the best of individuals. He believes in sincerity, redemption, and good intentions. These traits might seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado as they do in a politician, but they are the very same traits that give a young, non-politician the unique capability to serve the public. Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, Kissel states, there is no losing. « The fact that we’re on the ballot is incredible, which we are able to inspire individuals to conduct or engage in the political process — that’s a triumph. That’s a gigantic win, » he says.

Kissel needs others to take heart in this message, also: « Losing is a significant fear for individuals, but who cares! Just get out there, and if you continue getting out, keep doing it in virtually any area, you are gonna win. »
