So this is pretty cool... OK, I'm just being coy... It's REALLY COOL! I'll be contributing weekly rants/reports centered around race and racism (Surprise SURPRISE!) on the very highly rated and highly followed podcast Citizen Radio! It is co-hosted by Jamie Kilstein, who has quickly become a stand-up comedic force for good (Janeane Garofalo said “Watching Jamie reminds me of why I got into comedy. It is like watching a combination of George Carlin and Bill Hicks”) , and Allison Kilkenny, who is a political blogger everywhere that smart people read political blogs (Huffington Post, Alternet.org, The Nation, True/Slant). They've had Noam Chomsky, Melissa Harris Lacewell, the late Howard Zinn, Janeane Garofalo, and now they want me (?). It is a brilliant show whether I'm on it or not.
I was on their show earlier this year, and they have decided that they want more regular doses of Kamau. Sp far the segment is called, "We're sorry, black people!" The first one will be start airing this Friday, April 30th, I believe. And as a special preshow bonus, I'll be posting the text of them here on my website so you can get sneak peak before you hear my voice exploding out of your speakers.
I'll post the first one later today.
