Last Podcast On The Left Ben Kissel

Podcaster/comedian/writer/politician a Renaissance Man. His podcast « Last week on the Left », for which he is a co-creator and co-host, won a Webby and has been listed as one of Itunes Top 10 most downloaded comedy podcasts of 2017 with over a million subscribers. He is also the host of this political comedy podcast « Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat ».

In 2017 Ben conducted for Brooklyn Borough President together with the Reform Party, which he did not win, but there is always tomorrow! He’s a political pundit with appearances on CNN, Fox News Network, HLN along with a nationwide radio host having worked on Sirius Radio and Fox News Radio. In 2015 as a political activist he was able to overturn an anti-cross grooming legislation in New Jersey.

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

Released every Friday the episodes are generally one hour in length, with the hosts investigating the horrors of the planet both real and imagined. Previous episodes have researched 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 create The Last Stream on the Left, a live-streaming spinoff series about the Adult Swim site.

In the post-Trump era, with a reality TV celebrity holding our nation’s highest office, stories such as Kissel’s are becoming more prevalent — 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 need to be qualified to win. On the flip side, it was a rude awakening the dissatisfied need to take politics.

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

As someone who’s been listed in podcasts and around the radio for eight years, Kissel acknowledges that a great deal of individuals wait to run for office for fear of criticism or having their previous vulnerable. His advice? Own it. After all, he says, everybody has their own past, and so long as you « deal with the Republicans with humanity and respect, » voters can « accept each of the defects that go with that individual, provided that that person is willing to accept them. »

Much like the offenders he covers Last Podcast, Kissel says with a laugh, « lots of politicians are sociopaths without a ideology. Obviously not all of them, but we need the people that have scruples, morals, and are worried about their own failings. »

For someone who faces the worst of humankind with dark comedy at his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel truly feels in the best of individuals. He believes in redemption, sincerity, and good goals. These traits might seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado as they do at a politician, but they’re the very same traits that provide a youthful, non-politician the exceptional capability to serve the general public. No matter what happens on Tuesday, Kissel states, there’s no losing. « The very fact that we’re on the ballot is incredible, which we’re able to inspire people to conduct or participate in the political process — that’s a triumph. That is a massive triumph, » he states.

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