The Last Podcast On the Left Review

The Last Podcast on the Left Review


“Last Podcast on the Left” is a podcast that blends a raunchy mix of comedy and horror while swooping into the chilling realms of true crime, horror, and the paranormal. Hosted by Marcus Parks, Ed Larson, and Henry Zebrowski, this podcast manages to balance a heaping dose of humor with the macabre, offering an intriguing and often out-of-left-field take on some of the most disturbing stories from around the world.

The hosts exhibit a unique chemistry that is palpable in every episode. Henry Zebrowski’s wild, comedic outbursts and Marcus Parks’ detailed storytelling create a healthy mix for this podcast. This particular dynamic allows the show to cover deeply unsettling topics—such as serial killers, cults, and alien abductions—in a way that is informative and entertaining, albeit not always for the faint of heart.

Perhaps the deep-research approach of “Last Podcast on the Left” is no-longer unique in the world of podcasting, and particularly when it comes to these kinds of topics. Nevertheless, host Marcus Parks is known for his exhaustive research, which lends a layer of authenticity and depth to the discussions that is sometimes lacking in similar shows. This thoroughness not only enriches the listener’s understanding but also respects the gravity of the real-world events and victims discussed.

The podcast’s humor might not be to everyone’s taste as it ventures into realms of dark comedy that can occasionally feel jarring, and at times controversial, given the subject matter. However, this is also what sets it apart from more straightforward true crime or horror podcasts. The hosts’ ability to inject humor into the discussion serves as a coping mechanism, making the grisly topics more palatable for an audience that might otherwise find them too distressing.

I’ve listened to this podcast for a very long time, and while it’s had its share of ups and downs, it remains a regular listen for me. For those intrigued by the darker sides of humanity and history, and who can appreciate a dose of humor with their horror, this podcast belongs in your ears.  However, new listeners should be prepared for a raw and unfiltered approach, which is part of what makes the podcast genuinely distinctive in its crowded genre.
