A big, warm welcome to Johann Hari, our very first guest with a fatwa on his head!
Jamie barely represses his rage at the state of the American comedy industry, and Allison and Jamie discuss Obama’s sketchy policy decisions.
Join Drunken Politics for part one of their interview with journalist Johann Hari, their very first guest with a fatwa on his head. Visit JohannHari.com to read Johann’s amazing articles.
Johann Hari is an award-winning journalist who writes twice-weekly for the Independent, one of Britain’s leading newspapers, and the Huffington Post.
‘Prince’ Turki Al-Faisal, the Saudi Ambassador to Britain, has accused Johann of “waging a private jihad against the House of Saud”. (He’s right). Johann has been called ‘Maoist’ by Nick Cohen, “Stalinist” by Noam Chomsky, ‘Horrible Hari’ by Niall Ferguson, “an uppity little queer” by Bruce Anderson, ‘a drug addict’ by George Galloway and “fat” by the Dalai Lama
Part two of the interview next Wednesday on BTR!

Drunken Politics sits down with the indie rock band, The Thermals. The band weaves a political message into their lyrics, and is famous for turning down a $50,000 offer from Hummer to include one of their songs in a commercial.

Drunken Politics is a political-comedy radio show hosted by Allison Kilkenny and Jamie Kilstein. It’s basically CNN, but with way more swearing. We solemnly swear to bring you the real news (the unreported, underreported, and most essential stories) without mentioning any celebrities.
Lots of critics have said very nice things about our show, which we know you’ll love if you just give it a listen! If you’re already a fan, spread the word about us, and send your apathetic, hipster douchebag friends our way!
