Conshohocken native and veteran Dan Cianci recently launched a podcast The Daily American. Cianci grew up in the apartment above Scoops and you could often find him on the local basketball courts. After graduating from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, where he admittingly was never a great student, he joined the army and served 14 months in Iraq. Conshohocken welcomed him back from Iraq with a parade.
Once his active duty was up, Cianci obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from West Chester University and completed his inactive reserve time in the National Guard. He has now worked in the HVAC industry for five years with Johnstone Supply.
The Daily American podcast consists of non-scripted conversations with individuals from all walks of life on two topics: struggle and perseverance. Common topics on the show include cancer, suicide, PTSD, addiction, and the death of a loved one.
Cianci shared that through the podcast he is attempting to destigmatize these issues and be a platform for someone to turn to if they are dealing with something similar.
Episodes are released every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. (EST). The episodes can be found on all platforms including Apple, Spotify, and on The Daily American website.
