On this episode of THE COCKTAIL GURU PODCAST, brought to you by Journeyman Distillery, drinks writer and journalist-bon vivant Dan Dunn, host of WHAT WE'RE DRINKING on Starburns Audio, raises an overflowing glass of all things spirited with hosts Jonathan & Jeffrey Pogash!   

GUEST BIO

Dan Dunn is an American writer, journalist, and former host of the SiriusXM satellite radio program, Dan Dunn's Happy Hour, and the celebrity/drinking-themed podcast Drinky Fun Time. In June 2019 he launched the podcast What We're Drinking with Dan Dunn, which is part of Dan Harmon's Starburns Audio[4] network. Guests on Dunn's shows have included Anthony Bourdain, Guillermo del Toro, Halsey, Kiefer Sutherland, G Eazy, and Maynard James Keenan. Dunn is a regular contributor to The Robb Report. He wrote a comedic wine and spirits column called “The Imbiber” for Playboy, as well as for the website Food Republic. He was also a columnist for Wine Access in Canada and a nightlife guide for Mutineer magazine.

He worked as a staff writer for the Emmy-nominated TV show Talk Soup and freelance joke writer for Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update.” Dunn’s semi-fictional memoir, Nobody Likes a Quitter (and other reasons to avoid rehab), was critically acclaimed and published in November 2007 by Perseus Books. His second book, Living Loaded: Tales of sex, salvation, and the pursuit of the never-ending happy hour, was published by Random House/Crown in February 2011. Living Loaded was developed into a scripted comedy series for Fox by Dunn and Rob McElhenney, creator of the FX series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Glenn Howerton, star of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, cited Dunn as the "driving force" behind The 7 Secrets of Awakening the Highly Effective Four-Hour Giant, Today, a faux self-help which lists the show’s characters as authors. It was published by Dey Street Books/HarperCollins in January 2015. Dunn's memoir, American Wino: A Tale of Reds, Whites, and One Man's Blues, was published by Dey Street Books/HarperCollins in April 2016. Critic Ray Isle, writing for Food & Wine, called American Wino "a multi-state Sideways, but with only one character. Luckily Dunn is a lively, funny companion."

Dunn’s work has appeared in numerous high-profile publications, including GQ, USA Today, Maxim, the Los Angeles Times, LA Style, and Entertainment Weekly. Prior to being picked up by Playboy in 2009, Dunn’s “The Imbiber” column appeared weekly for several years in Metro International.

Dunn was a regular guest on the Playboy Radio Morning Show on Sirius/XM satellite radio and The Tasting Room with Tom Leykis, and he hosted The Imbiber Show podcast for The New Normal Network. He has made guest appearances on The Adam Carolla Show and Conan.
He grew up in Philadelphia, PA, and is a 1991 graduate of Temple University, with a BA in journalism.

Radio

What We're Drinking with Dan Dunn is a fantabulous conflation of history, culture, politics, famous people, and booze, strained through the cognitive mesh of a best-selling author, polymath, and inveterate reprobate. (https://starburns.audio/podcasts/what-were-drinking-with-dan-dunn)
