Aidan Coughlan-

Aidan Coughlan: I host The Aidan Project Podcast which looks at a multitude of topics, but honest discussion of current events is the Project‘s raison d’être. Above all, I am seeking to facilitate honest debate and to provide analysis in the very same spirit. I am also passionate about history and culture. This gives me a large remit for potential exploration.

I live in the East of England and began podcasting – not that it was called this until much later – in the late 1990’s. Back then, I
produced short audio shows on entertainment, mostly for an American audience. I also became involved in amateur radio around this time. However, other pursuits took me away from the microphone for many years.

In the 2010’s, I passionately began to feel that I had something to say, or perhaps more precisely, a duty to say it. I felt that there
were – and are – debates in the public sphere that many people, not least my fellow liberals, were not being entirely forthcoming about. I toyed with the idea of launching a podcast for a long time. Eventually, I found – or made – the time. I am glad I did.

My influences as a commentator include George Orwell and Christopher Hitchens. The latter was greatly influenced by the former.  I believe we owe it to each other to seek common ground, even if this requires difficult conversations along the way.

Away from my work on the world wide web, I am vegan (I am duty bound by the law of veganism to tell you this), straight edge and atheist. Whenever possible, I pursue my innumerable fitness goals, which, perhaps by design, are always slightly out of reach.

My podcast is available via all major podcast services and at http://www.TheAidanProject.org. You can find me on Twitter at
