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.

NYT reporter goes way out on a limb on Hillary. Armando joins in to discuss the Duggar & O'Reilly news. Kansas, whose governor blows a lot, takes punishing the poor to a new level.

White-on-white crime shocker leads off the broadcast. Greg Dworkin updates us on a GunFAIL story from way back, and notes the passing of B.B. King and “the father of evidence based medicine,” David Sackett. Banking on the Gordie Howe bridge. Another cycle of Jeb's Iraq gaffe. Rubio officially becomes Flavor of the Month. Will he inherit the scrutiny? Armando joins in expressing his disbelief at Jeb's flub, nearly has a car accident around the 51st minute of the show, then handicaps the GOP field while I take a walk around the block and go see a movie. The Stephanopolous outrage. Then, as promised, David Dayen's "10 biggest lies" about TPP and the ACLU on cops playing to the cameras. Finally, Gimmetarianism defined: the jerky anti-Obamacare jerk who acted like a jerk and then got in over his head and said more jerky stuff.
This week marked codas on Mad Men, Obamacare, media lies, and Jeb Bush. (This episode recorded before the Senate’s turnaround on TPP.) More at professionalleft.blogspot.com
