Citizen Radio

Episode #231 Egypt's revolution (and the over-emphasis on looting by the MSM,) David Icke is apparently a fan of Allison's work, rich people still rule us all, and Jamie's girly yoga pants.

Citizen Radio will be going on a bit of a working vacation next week (It's Jamie time on Conan). Tune in Wednesday for audio from Citizen Radio Live! at Sketchfest with guests Markos Moulitsas, Paul F. Tomkins, and Maria Bamford. Plus, special surprise guests! Friday and Monday will be best-of episodes (Howard Zinn's last interview and CR Live at UCB with Jeremy Scahill, Matt Taibbi, and Janeane Garofalo).

Episode #230 Jamie Dimon, and the rest of the Ruling Right, really don't get why you poor people keep bitching about social injustice (http://allisonkilkenny.com/2011/01/lest-the-hen-stop-baking-for-the-world/). The winner of Youtube's "Ask Obama" contest is a pro-marjiuana legalization question. Hopefully, Obama won't laugh it off this time. Also, Ted Haggart finally admits he's bisexual, and an avid crystal meth user. Finally, a leading gay rights activist has been killed in Uganda, and Allison and Jamie dissect Obama's SOTU.

Episode #228 Bradley Manning is now being denied access to the one visitor who was previously permitted to see him - could a coerced Wikileaks confession be far behind? Allison and Jamie share their own experience with sensory deprivation involving a maybe cult, and a right-wing militia killed a little girl named Brisenia Flores almost two years ago. Why doesn't the national media care?

Episode #227 Blackwater's Erik Prince is BACK, bitches! You'll never guess what he's up to now. Also, the Tea Party is less popular than Russia and Socialism, Democrats will defend Social Security if they're smart (don't hold your breath,) why the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell isn't about abortion, and the Washington Post newsroom is scared of black ladies and/or boobies.

Jamie talks about being overly PC, and Citizen Radio gives away a PIRATE membership.

Episode #226 Special guest Dan Savage talks about the It Gets Better Project (http://www.itgetsbetter.org/,) critiques how the media handles the topic of gay rights, Obama's wavering on gay rights, the progress the Obama administration has made on LGBT issues, and what makes him happy.

Next, the Tunisian revolution, why the media is ignoring it, and the consequences of the BP oil spill.

Episode #225 Allison and Jamie are back from L.A., and bear tales of Lewis Black, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, and more. Also, Tunisia is on fire, Sarah Palin makes another stupid statement, and an interesting critique of the "liberal" blogosphere: http://lhote.blogspot.com/2011/01/blindspot.html.

Episode #223 Tom DeLay is finally sentenced to prison, David Frum thinks weed is responsible for the Arizona shooting, Glenn Beck uses an unfortunate photo as the backdrop for his statement about Rep. Giffords, and two lawmakers announce they'll be carrying guns after the Arizona attack (which will probably totally end well.)

Also, Citizen Radio revisits the deeply disturbing story of the Scott Sisters, who served 16 years in jail for assisting a robbery in which $11 was stolen, and were only recently freed -- not because it was the right thing to do -- but because it saved the state money on an organ transplant. Allison and Jamie answer some of your mail. Questions/comments this week concern following your dreams, vegan zombies, and celebrating the fact that Jamie isn't going to die in West Virginia.

Gather round, young ones, and listen to the legend of Tallville.
