Citizen Radio is hosted by Allison Kilkenny and is dedicated to covering the stories that the mainstream, corporate media ignores. It's like Democracy Now but with much more swearing. They have interviewed such distinct intellectuals, bands, and comics such as Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, Rachel Maddow, Melissa Harris-Perry, Tariq Ali, Howard Zinn, Matt Taibbi, Rise Against, System of a Down, Anti-Flag, Bad Religion, Jeremy Scahill, Robin Williams, Matt Besser, Janeane Garofalo, and more. “[Citizen Radio] has created an important political radio show that balances humor and unreported news. At a time when media conglomerates dominate the airwaves, independent media like Citizen Radio is vital to national discourse” - Noam Chomsky "Allison Kilkenny strikes fear into the hearts of corrupt politicians and corporations everywhere" -Village Voice "Kilkenny is one of the top 30 media heroes in the country" -The Nation "Allison Kilkenny is this generation’s Amy Goodman” -Melissa Harris-Perry. “Allison Kilkenny’s writing makes me want to vomit” - G. Gordon Liddy, Convicted Watergate criminal “Jamie Kilstein is a doofus.” –Glenn Beck
