John Iadarola is the host of The Damage Report and also produces and co-hosts the live primetime show, The Young Turks, where his calm demeanor and understated humor provide the perfect foil to Cenk Uygur.
After earning his BA in Political Science at the University of Connecticut, John joined a Ph.D program in Political Psychology at the University of Texas, but soon decided to throw away a promising future in academia to talk about politics on the internet with TYT.
John is, he acknowledges, one of the bigger nerds at TYT – an unapologetic board game enthusiast, volleyball aficionado and krav maga practitioner who maintains his sanity 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 rising emergency of global climate change, 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.
