Common Sense with Dan Carlin

Common Sense with Dan Carlin is an independent look at politics and current events from popular New Media personality Dan Carlin.

Common Sense with Dan Carlin is an independent look at politics and current events from popular New Media personality Dan Carlin.

  • Description: Carlin’s self-described “Martian” viewpoints infuse each episode with a political alien’s take on the world around us and the problems it faces. It’s a smart, unique (and admittedly U.S.-centric) program that doesn’t dumb down the information or analysis for the slowest person in the room. Carlin’s rapid-fire staccato voice has been compared to William Shatner after too many espressos. That, plus his penchant for making everyone in the audience mad at him eventually, makes for a witch’s brew of a podcast that is not for everyone. But for those craving a deeper intellectual analysis, a less partisan approach and unpredictable outside-the-box revelations, Common Sense with Dan Carlin is a feast for the mind.
