If you click on the weekly podcast Last Podcast On The Left, you’ll hear a snippet of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer uttering his famously disturbing line “That’s when the cannibalism started.” If you weren’t already clear what you were tuning in for, you certainly are at that point. Last Podcast On The Left, which started in 2011, explores all things horror related. That includes serial killers, vampires, cults, voodoo, ghost hunters, Satanic rituals, and Nazis. But it also includes actual horror movies. (The title is a reference to the famously unsettling, exploitation ’70s horror film Last House On The Left.) I know it’s sounds like an entirely unpleasant way to spend the afternoon, but the hosts Ben Kissel, Marcus Parks, and Henry Zebrowski make the material engaging and even funny. You have to have a fascination with the macabre. Otherwise you might want to stick to This American Life.
