The previous Podcast about the Left is a weekly podcast featuring singer and comedian 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 each Friday, the episodes are normally 1 hour in length, together with the hosts investigating the horrors of the planet both imagined and real.

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 people are becoming involved and seeking public office. On the one hand, the 2016 election showed us that candidates do not have to be qualified to win. On the other, it was a rude awakening that the dissatisfied have to take politics into their own hands.

Enter Ben Kissel. In 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 rated second on iTunes’ comedy graph and attracts fans throughout 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 decades, Kissel acknowledges that a great deal of individuals hesitate to run for office for fear of criticism or using their previous vulnerable. His advice? Own it. In the end, he says, everyone has their own past, and so long as you « deal with the Republicans with respect and humanity, » voters may « accept all the defects that go with that person, provided that that person is ready to accept them. »

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

For somebody who confronts the worst of humanity with dark humor at his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel really feels in the best of people. He believes in redemption, sincerity, and good intentions. These traits may seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado as they do in a politician, but they’re the very same traits that give a young, non-politician the exceptional capability to serve the public. No matter what happens on Tuesday there’s no losing. « The very fact that we’re on the ballot is unbelievable, and that we are ready to inspire individuals to run or participate in the political process — that’s a triumph. That is a gigantic win, » he says.

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