How the Heck Are We Gonna Get Along

John Iadarola

In This Episode:

Clay Aiken is joined by one of HTH’s first guests, John Iadarola of The Young Turks and The Damage Report, to take a look at where the country’s gone since the early episodes and what to look for going into 2021.  Is Biden the great progressive hope now that it looks like Trump is headed out of office, or will the left be let down again?  More important, after a divisive election, how do we bring the opposing poles of our politics closer together?



John Iadarola is the host of The Damage Report and also produces and co-hosts the live primetime news show, The Young Turks, where his calm demeanor and understated humor provide the perfect foil to Cenk Uygur. He is also the creator of ThinkTank, TYT Network’s second-most popular show on YouTube, boasting an avid following of nearly 1.2 million subscribers while tallying more than 400 million views.  After earning his BA in Political Science at the University of Connecticut, John abandoned a promising career in academia, lured away from a Ph.D program in Government at the University of Texas to join The Young Turks in LA to talk about news and politics and — just maybe — become a bona fide YouTube celebrity.


John is, he acknowledges, one of the bigger nerds at TYT – an unapologetic board game enthusiast, volleyball aficionado and krav maga practitioner who spends what little free time remains streaming video games on Twitch and playing with his dog, Helo.  John brings his passion for politics to every on-air appearance, whether discussing the threat posed to democracy by a Donald Trump presidency, the corrosive effect of money in politics, the critical next steps for the rising progressive movement awakened by the Bernie Sanders campaign — virtually any subject dominating the headlines or trending in your timeline, John will have an opinion — and the facts to back it up.



Clay Aiken has sold 6 million albums, authored a New York Times bestseller, and ran for Congress in North Carolina in 2014.
