Common Sense with Dan Carlin

A News and Politics podcast featuring Dan Carlin
 24 people rated this podcast
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.

"Been listening to this podcast since 2007 and it's really shaped my understanding of politics for the better. Dan has a very deep knowledge of American politics and doesn't give the usual simplistic team-based perspective. He's subtle and pragmatic. He's also usually right about how events will play out and focuses on the important issues and not the fluff. I wish more people listened to this show."

"Dan Carlin has one of the most interesting minds in political talk. He is truly moderate about many issues and presents current day issues in context. Not super regular, but when they do release, they are must listens. "
