The Last Podcast about the Left is a weekly podcast featuring singer and comedian sponsor Ben Kissel, podcast producer and researcher 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 planet both imagined and real.

In the post-Trump era, using a reality TV star holding our nation’s highest office, tales such as Kissel’s are becoming more common — droves of young men and women are becoming involved and seeking public office. On the 1 hand, the 2016 election showed us that applicants do not have to be qualified to win. On the other, it was a rude awakening the dissatisfied have to take politics into their own hands.

Input Ben Kissel. At his « day job, » Kissel — combined with co-hosts Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski — hosts a true-crime-meets-paranormal comedy podcast. Last Podcast on the Left is ranked second on iTunes’ comedy chart and draws fans throughout the world. But like most dismayed young voters, Kissel took 2016 as a wake-up telephone to run for office.

As somebody who’s been listed in podcasts and on the radio for eight years, Kissel acknowledges that a lot of individuals wait to run for office for fear of criticism or using their previous exposed. His advice? Own it. After all, he states, everybody has their own past, and so long as you « deal with the voters with humanity and respect, » voters can « accept all the defects which go with that person, as long as this individual is ready to accept them. »

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

For somebody who confronts the worst of humankind with dark comedy in his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel truly feels in the finest of individuals. He believes in sincerity, redemption, and good goals. These traits might seem just as strange in a true-crime aficionado since they do in a politician, but they are the same traits that provide a young, non-politician the unique capability to serve the public. No matter what happens on Tuesday there is no losing. « The fact that we are on the ballot is incredible, which we’re able to inspire individuals to conduct or engage in the political process — that is a triumph. That is a gigantic triumph, » he says.

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