His podcast « Last Podcast about the Left », for he is a co-creator and co-host, won a Webby and has been listed among Itunes Top 10 most downloaded comedy podcasts of 2017 with more than a million readers. He’s also the host of the political comedy podcast « Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat ».

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

The previous Podcast on 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 joined in the third episode), all of whom are longtime friends.

Released every Friday, the episodes are generally one hour in length, with the hosts exploring the horrors of the planet 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 the podcast and create The Last Stream about the Left, a live-streaming spinoff show about the Adult Swim website.

From the post-Trump era, using a reality TV celebrity holding our nation’s highest office, stories such as Kissel’s are becoming more common — droves of young people are becoming involved and seeking public office. On the one hand, the 2016 election showed us that candidates don’t 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 — 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’ humor graph and attracts fans across the world. But like most dismayed young Republicans, 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 admits that a lot of people wait to run for office for fear of criticism or using their previous vulnerable. His advice? Own it. In the end, he says, everybody has their own past, and as long as you « treat the voters with respect and humanity, » voters may « accept each of the flaws that go with that person, provided that this individual is willing to accept them. »

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

For somebody who confronts the worst of humanity with dark comedy in his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel truly feels in the finest of individuals. He believes in sincerity salvation, and good goals. These traits may seem just as strange in a true-crime aficionado as they do in 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 says, there is no losing. « The fact that we are on the ballot is incredible, which we’re ready to inspire people to run or engage in the political process — that is a win. That’s a gigantic win, » he says.

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