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 “Jamie Kilstein is amazing and I will be spreading the word. He has the spark that energized my conscience. We need more comedians kicking it hard the way he does every night” – Robin Williams "Allison and Jamie are a modern day social justice, non-violent, vegan, punk, anti-war, feminist Bonnie and Clyde. Their weapons are simple: the pen, the airwaves, and a searing sense of humor. Their targets are the rich, the powerful, corporate media barons and basically any major league assholes." -Jeremy Scahill "Kilkenny is one of the top 30 media heroes in the country" -The Nation “Jamie reminds me of why I got into comedy. It’s like watching a combination of George Carlin and Bill Hicks ” - Janeane Garofalo "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.
