Common Sense with Dan Carlin – Dan CarlinListen
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.
The official free download of the award-winning radio program “Reveal,” produced by The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. Hidden stories, uncovered – that’s what this show is about. It takes you deep inside stories that impact your world, revealing injustice and holding the powerful accountable. The first-of-its-kind investigative program on public radio, “Reveal” is hosted by Al Letson and updated regularly.
