RATING
The Last Podcast on the Left has been on my recommended list for a long time, so I was disappointed upon my first listen. I think this style of storytelling within the true crime genre substantiates a lot of criticism. There was a stunning lack of empathy or recognition that real people were victimized throughout the episodes (that involved real crimes) I listened to. I love true crime/comedy podcasts but I do believe there is a balancing act that speakers need to be aware of. The timing and subject of jokes after brutal crime details (like the Toybox killer episode) made me physically uncomfortable— and I’m not a squeamish person. It felt exploitative to listen to rather than using dark humor to cope with/shed light on some brutal crimes. The “naked girl who was ravaged for three days” name is Cynthia Vigil by the way (continuously referred to as “the woman”). Maybe I listened to some old episodes and the podcasters have changed their style since— I hope they have! But not a good first impression.
Listening for first time. Took exactly 7 minutes for the hosts to start talking about cis gender and misgendering. Zzzzz...
My boyfriend turned me onto this podcast and I am now absolutely addicted. Not only are these guys hilarious but their research is top notch.
One of my favourite podcasts! So funny and very informative
I was a big fan of this podcast for a long time, if you only listen to 50 episodes you'll have a great time, if you listen to all of them you'll probably regret it. Don't bother with any of the side content
Hello! My name is Ken. As a fellow podcaster, I know how important reviews can be to creators like us. That’s why, in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to give your podcast 5 stars. If you’re also feeling in a giving mood, feel free to review mine as well! It’s called PRRP, which stands for Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast. (It’s a podcast that reviews the reviews of its podcast.) Happy holidays!
I just love love love jogging while listening to them. I have a feeling as if I'm somewhere on a mission while these guys tell me all the details and joke around.
This is my all time favorite podcast. All the research and time put into the episodes make it worthwhile. I love the boys and each of their personalities add to the show.
Please...for the love of Satan...stop saying “literally.” This plea is mostly directed at Ben and Henry, because they’re the worst offenders in this case. You seem like intelligent men, but you never use this word correctly and you spit it out every few minutes like it’s a nervous tic. Learn a new vocabulary word and stop degrading the English language. Hail yourselves.
I think I like this podcast best because it reflects my sense of humor and the chemistry between the hosts is perfectly matched.
The best podcast ever created
They killed their own podcast. Can't listen to it on any proper podcast management app, not even the old episodes.
Took me a few episodes to get into this but once I did I was hooked. You can't fault the depth of research Marcus and Henry (and their other researchers) put into these episodes. They have created a podcast that covers everything from 'heavy-hitter' serial killers, cryptids, cults, aliens and other strangeness. Not only that but their discussions on mental health has also helped numerous people dealing with their own issues. Not for everyone but they have been, and will always be my favourite podcasts. I've made numerous friends through them and seeing them live last year was one of my highlights of the year. #hailyourself
Previously a personal favourite podcast, that I enjoyed coming out every week. Mixing solid and deep research from Marcus with humour and quips to lift up the mood from Ben and Henry. However, since February of 2020 they have moved exclusively to Spotify, which is a platform actively trying to undermine and break the podcast ecosystem by refusing to participate in the RSS ecosystem. Spotify's behaviour has the potential to severely damage the podcasting community, and is a clear attempt to become new gatekeepers to access to advertisers. While they continue to enable Spotify's anti-podcast actions I will not listen. "If it doesn't have an RSS feed, it ain't a podcast"
Best parasocial relationship ever
Probably my favourite podcast!
I love these guys! So much fun and so damn informative, scary and the best! First podcast I ever binged and first podcast I saw live! If you love goats with a personality Henry, Ben and Marcus will blow your mind! Wacky and wonderful.
These boys are all terrible and highly entertaining!
I think a lot of people have already heard about LPOTL -- it is Top 2 in the realm of funny true crime podcasts, along with My Favorite Murder. LPOTL mixes humor (often crude) with true crime, horror, and supernatural topics. Extremely well-researched and well-constructed, the episodes dive deep but keep it fresh with the laughs. I think the big sticking point for some people will be whether they enjoy the humor -- not everyone shares the same sense of humor or enjoys the same kind of jokes. If you don't find the show funny, it probably isn't the one for you! That's okay! But if you listen and find yourself laughing, you'll be glad there are so many episodes to work through!
