Hasan Piker always knew he had a knack for debunking arguments. Starting off as a fill-in host for the YouTube news show “The Young Turks,” Hasan garnered attention for his political analysis around the 2016 elections. Soon after, he started combining news commentary with Twitch streaming under the handle hasanabi, creating the prototype of a new kind of political pundit. No matter how controversial the topic, Hasan has never shied away from offering his uncensored opinions. His determination to educate and inform has made him one of the most-viewed, most-subscribed-to, and at times, most-talked-about streamer on Twitch.
