The Last Podcast about the Left is a weekly podcast featuring comedian and podcast sponsor Ben Kissel, podcast producer and researcher Marcus Parks, and comedian and actor Henry Zebrowski (who combined in the next episode), most of whom are longtime friends.

Released each Friday the episodes are normally one hour in length, together with the hosts investigating the horrors of the world both real and imagined. Previous episodes have explored the topics of serial killers, conspiracy theories, UFO sightings, ghosts, and readings of fan-submitted creepypastas. Kissel, Parks, and Zebrowski tour with live performances of this podcast and produce The Last Stream on the Left, a live-streaming spinoff series about the Adult Swim website.

From the post-Trump era, using a reality TV celebrity holding our country’s highest office, tales like Kissel’s are becoming more prevalent — droves of young people are getting involved and seeking public office. On the 1 hand, the 2016 election showed us that applicants don’t have to be qualified to win. On the other, it was a rude awakening that the dissatisfied have to take politics.

Enter Ben Kissel. In his « day job, » Kissel — combined with co-hosts Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski — hosts a true-crime-meets-paranormal humor podcast. Last Podcast on the Left is rated second on iTunes’ humor chart and draws fans throughout the globe. But like many dismayed young Republicans, Kissel took 2016 as a wake-up call to run for office.

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

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

For somebody who confronts 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 goals. These traits may seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado since they do in a politician, but they’re the very same traits that give a youthful, non-politician the exceptional capability to serve the public. No matter what happens on Tuesday there is no losing. « The very fact that we’re on the ballot is unbelievable, and that we’re able to inspire people to conduct or engage in the political process — that is a triumph. That’s a massive triumph, » he says.

Kissel wants other people to take heart in this message, too: « Losing is a big fear for individuals, but who cares! Just get out there, and if you continue getting out, continue doing it in any field, you are gonna win. »
