Citations Needed is a weekly podcast about the intersection of media, PR, and power, hosted by Nima Shirazi and Adam Johnson.

Adam and Nima are political commentators and media analysts whose work seeks to identify, demystify, deconstruct and call bullshit on the media’s ubiquitous reliance on and regurgitation of false and destructive narratives, tropes and stereotypes.

Citations Needed is available on iTunes, Soundcloud and LibSyn (here's the RSS feed). You can also check us out on Twitter, Facebook, and Medium, which is where we post a bunch of show notes to accompany each episode.

The show covers issues both foreign and domestic - from decades of relentless government propaganda about "disobedient" nations like North Korea and Iran to the tortured language employed relentlessly by the press to protect police and other institutions of power - and features interviews with journalists, analysts, activists, academics, and artists.

Adam H. Johnson is a media analyst for Fairness and Accuracy in ReportingThe Los Angeles Times and TruthDig. 



Nima Shirazi is an editor for Muftah, a digital foreign affairs magazine. His political analysis has appeared in Salon, Truthout, Mic, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting and Al Jazeera English, among other outlets.

Citations Needed is produced by Florence Barrau-Adams.

Florence Barrau-Adams has over 20 years of experience working in audio/video media. She is an instructor at both New York University and Ramapo College of New Jersey.
