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.
Gas Up the Cold War
Vladimir Putin has instantaneously reignited the Cold War by savagely attacking Ukraine this week. In response to requests, Dan shares a few thoughts.
Betting on Long Shots
After 20 years in Afghanistan the U.S. exits the country thus ending the longest war in American history. Are there any lessons to be learned?
Garbage In, Garbage Out
In a show recorded before the recent House impeachment vote, Dan examines the damage caused by the iceberg we recently hit when Americans stormed the U.S. Capitol and tries to suggest how we might avoid hitting another one.
Steering Into the Iceberg
To paraphrase John Lennon, So you say you want a civil war? With the U.S. facing one of the most consequential elections in its history, Dan has some thoughts about us all, our choices and the times in which we live.
A Recipe for Caesar
Does a global pandemic help break the spell of our bitter partisan conflict, or does it just raise the stakes? In the first CS show in years Dan wrestles with the Zeitgeist.
For Whom the Bell Trolls
You never know when you might get a little common sense unexpectedly out of nowhere.This is one of those times.
Keep up the good work
I’ve listened to all the hch, love it, recommended and gifted to many people, Dan Carlin should voice EVERY audiobook! And I have gained personal perspective and understanding that even though I don’t completely agree with all his political beliefs, it’s refreshing to hear an alternate, logical and calm expression from “the other side”
NEVER STOP PODCASTING!!!
Dan Carlin became scared of the left
Would love to see his rationale for this administration’s abject failures, Dan’s silence on current events is deafening.
Finally we have someone broadcasting some common sense. Much needed, especially in these insecure times.
Thank you Dan.
