Allison and Jamie discuss Atheism, Desmond Tutu, and play the second half of their interview with Princeton professor and author, Melissa Harris-Lacewell.

Listen here.

There are Atheism groups popping up all over the country, but they have yet to rival the church with social welfare projects. Jamie proposes a solution for this.

In part two of her interview, Melissa Harris-Lacewell discusses New Orleans, James Perry, America being post-racial (it’s not,) hip-hop and the notion of “Ride or Die,” and what makes her happy.

BreakThru Radio introduces Drunken Politics to the iPhone and iTouch

Posted in Uncategorized by allisonkilkenny on November 4, 2008

Listen to Drunken Politics on BreakThru here!

The show will be available all week on BreakThru

Join us today with Ralph Nader @ 3pm EST!

Now @ BreakThru Radio!

Listen to our show TODAY for the very special premiere on BreakThru Radio and then listen to us every Wednesday on BreakThru! Remember: support independent media so we can avoid whoring ourselves out to corporations!



New York, NY – BreakThru Radio introduces Drunken Politics to the iPhone and iTouch on-demand today. Your daily dose of alternative news. Drunken Politics Radio is for young people disillusioned with corporate media and a political system that doesn’t speak to them.

The other news channels claim young people are disengaged, apathetic citizens with no interest in politics or world news. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Barack Obama’s unprecedented on-line campaign demonstrates how engaged and enthusiastic young people are to participate in their government, and a recent New York Times article reports that young people are more liberal, and are more enthusiastic than ever about politics.

Drunken Politics caters to this untapped and impassioned demographic by speaking in a funny, informal jargon that the youth understands. The show balances satire and comedy with the real, important stories that viewers will never see or hear on corporate channels.

Hosts Jamie Kilstein (Comedy Central, BBC) and Allison Kilkenny (Huffington Post, The Nation) combine the political and the funny to present the news in a fresh, exciting way that young people love and understand. Past and future guests include Ralph Nader, Paul Provenza (Director of the Aristocrats) winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and director of Why We Fight Eugene Jerecki, and recently Independent Vice Presidential candidate and Ralph Naders running mate Matt Gonzalez called them the two best journalists he has ever talked to.

iPhone and iTouch users simply need to navigate to BreakThru Radio in Safari on their device. Once there they will be presented with a series of drop-down menus which allow them to choose the on-demand show they want to hear.

About Breakthru Radio

In a world where independent music is becoming infinitely more accessible on the Internet, the need for informed sources to filter out the best of it has become a necessity.

BTR is constantly evolving, and 2007 saw the creation of a unique BTR Facebook application, making it possible for Facebook users to install a miniature version of BTR’s unique media player upon their personal pages. Also, independent video coverage was added to BTR, as well as top-notch editorial content and an intuitive global show calendar. Plus, BTR’s live musical content experienced immense growth, with exclusive recordings from Ardent Studios (Memphis, Tennessee), Old School Studios (Bury St Edmunds, United Kingdom) and Dubway Studios (New York City, New York) becoming part of BTR’s regular show schedule.
