Nicholas Giordano is a Professor of Political Science at Suffolk Community College and host of The P.A.S. Report Podcast. Recognized and well-respected for his analysis, Professor Giordano appears on radio and television to provide analysis on current issues and trends within government, politics, international relations, education, homeland security/emergency management, and social/cultural related issues. In addition, he is regularly called on to speak at events to provide expertise on critical issues facing the United States. It is Professor Giordano’s passion that led him to start The P.A.S. Report. Sick of an activist news media that wants to dictate how to think, Professor Giordano started The P.A.S. Report because of his unique ability to breakdown complex political issues and explain those issues in a way to appeal to everyday Americans. By introducing facts, a conservative perspective, and quality analysis, the listeners can come to their own conclusions. Prior to becoming a full-time tenured Professor, Nicholas Giordano served as a Catastrophic Planning Lead for the New York State Office of Emergency Management (NYS OEM) within the Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Services and coordinated response activities with local and federal emergency management officials. He served as a liaison between New York State, local governments and federal departments/agencies. Professor Giordano’s accomplishments are far-reaching and include senior leadership during response operations, maintaining situational awareness, and leading a number of planning initiatives so that EM officials more effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from an incident.
