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

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.

Dan Carlin Common Sense

Super Smart!

Truly common sense

You don’t have to agree with everything he says to admit that he stays fairly grounded and attempts to see all sides of the issue unlike a lot of peie who only want to hear what they want to hear

Love Dan’s other podcasts. This one? Not so much…

He claims to be unbiased and impartial, but politically Trump broke Dan. I don’t like Trump and didn’t vote for him; still think Dan developed TDS and radically changed the contents of this podcast after he was elected. He’s a lot closer to a mainstream democrat voice ala Pod Save America than any unbiased or impartial reporting.
