ABOUT ALLISON KILKENNY
Allison co-hosts Citizen Radio, the alternative political radio show alongside her partner, comic Jamie Kilstein. A contributing writer to Huffington Post, True/Slant, Truthout, Alternet, and The Nation, Allison currently blogs at http://allisonkilkenny.com, is a regular guest on SIRIUS radio and GRITtv with Laura Flanders. Someone once said she’s a humorist, which means writer, who makes shitty world news funny.
Her essay “Youth Surviving Subprime” appears in The Nation’s 2009 book, Meltdown: How Greed and Corruption Shattered Our Financial System and How We Can Recover beside esssays by Ralph Nader, Joseph Stiglitz, Barbara Ehrenreich, and Naomi Klein, who are all important people.
G. Gordon Liddy once said Allison’s writing makes him want to vomit, which to this day is the greatest compliment she has ever been paid, ever.
Allison cordially invites you to join her on other social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Citizen Radio is a political-comedy internet radio show that airs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Past guests include: Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Janeane Garofalo, Peter Singer, Jeremy Scahill, Matt Taibbi, PZ Myers, Melissa Harris-Lacewell, Tariq Ali, and more!
“Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny have 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
