Dan Nailen recently added his baritone enthusiasm to SLUG’s podcast, Soundwaves From The Underground, as the new host. Nailen is no stranger to Utah media, having formerly been a writer for the Salt Lake Tribune for over eight years, as well as the arts and entertainment editor for Salt Lake Magazine and managing editor of Salt Lake City Weekly. These days, Nailen has stepped away from his publishing and editorial roles and has taken on the role of Communications and Marketing Manager for the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, where he writes and edits most of the press releases, brochures and catalogs that come from the business school. You can also find him around town going to whatever plays and shows he can get to for his own blog,, and as a freelance writer for Salt Lake Magazine. When he’s not pounding away on a keyboard or recording an episode, Nailen enjoys fine whiskey over a book, usually reading up on the culture of the American West. He roots for the Jazz, but bets on college football, and occasionally plays pub quiz trivia with his team, Chicks, Dicks & Stevie Nicks. Download the show every week to hear our host do his thing!
