I’ve plugged Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny before, but I’m going to do it again, because this week, they have made the bold decision to drop the shackles of corporate support and go off on their own. Jamie and Allison are a married couple, and their Citizen Radio is one of the few sources out there that blends comedy and real news and analysis without either side suffering.
And this week, they interviewed Rachel Maddow!
Last night, Jamie sent me an e-mail that described the phenomenon they’ve created:
The show has gotten millions of kids who were not politically active and made them politically active. It really is radio for outcasts, and the emails we get would bring you to tears. The live shows sell out and have comedy kids listening to people like Matt Taibbi and Jeremy Scahill, while audience members like Amy Goodman laugh at us and Janeane Garofalo.
That, kids, is pretty awesome.
So, go check them out, and continue to do so until I tell you otherwise.
