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.

Have you learned your history?

People quibble. They want to hear that echo, the one they get from “their” media...the one that always tells them that they’re right...the one that confirms all their firmly held “convictions “ (biases).

Learn your history. Take the long view.

Dan may not (probably will not) gratify your craving for “heat”. He is a worthwhile voice to hear, especially in this time when our lives and our emotions and our intellects are seemingly governed by a 3-day news cycle.

Grow an attention span.

Amazing content

Well researched and enjoyable to listen to.

Coward

Dan knows the radicals have taken over the left/democratic side and is afraid to call it out for what it is. Nazi tactics by the left - let’s keep ignoring it.
