He is a political pundit with appearances on CNN, Fox News Network, HLN along with a nationwide radio host with worked on Sirius Radio and Fox News Radio.

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

Released every Friday the episodes are normally 1 hour in length, with the hosts exploring the horrors of the world both imagined and real. 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 on the Left, a live-streaming spinoff show about the Adult Swim site.

From the post-Trump era, with a reality TV star holding our country’s highest office, stories like Kissel’s are becoming more common — droves of young men and women are becoming involved and seeking public office. On the one hand, the 2016 election showed us that applicants don’t have to be qualified to win. On the other, it was a rude awakening 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 comedy podcast. Last Podcast on the Left is rated second on iTunes’ comedy chart and draws fans throughout the globe. But like most dismayed young voters, Kissel chose 2016 as a wake-up call to run for office.

As someone who’s been listed in podcasts and around 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 past vulnerable. His advice? Own it. In the end, he states, everyone has their own past, and as long as you « treat the voters with respect and humanity, » voters can « accept each of the defects which go with that individual, provided that that person is willing to accept them. »

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

For somebody who faces the worst of humanity with dark comedy in his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel really feels in the finest of individuals. He believes in salvation, sincerity, and good goals. These traits might seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado since they do at a politician, but they are the very same traits that provide a youthful, non-politician the exceptional ability to serve the public. Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, Kissel states, there is no losing. « The very fact that we are on the ballot is incredible, and that we are ready to inspire people to run or engage in the political process — that’s a win. That is a massive triumph, » he states.

Kissel wants others to take heart in this message, also: « 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 field, you’re gonna triumph. »
