Truth In The Age Of Spin | Dan Cummins | TEDxCoeurdalene

Comedian, podcast host and self proclaimed eternal learner, Dan Cummins can not understand what happened to truth in media. If it bleeds, it leads. Why do we allow sensationalism to determine what news we consume. What would happen if we actually listened to the facts? Dan is a stand-up comic who has appeared on The Tonight Show, Conan, Comedy Central, Netflix, TBS, NBC, VH1, CBS, Showtime, and more. He’s released five albums on Warner Brothers Records and is one of the most listened to comics on Pandora. He worked as a producer on numerous reality shows in Los Angeles such as Duck Dynasty. And for the last two years, Dan has hosted Timesuck – a podcast blending education and comedy that has been written up in numerous “best of” podcast lists and has spent over two years on the iTunes charts for the world’s top 100 most popular comedy podcasts. He lives in Couer d’Alene, Idaho with his wife, Lynze two kids, Kyler and Monroe, and two “fur babies”, Penny and Ginger. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
