Unauthorized Disclosure

In this year-end episode, hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola are joined by writer Roqayah Chamseddine for a look back at 2015.

The discussion focuses on the last GOP presidential debate of the year and how extraordinarily violent and reactionary the rhetoric of GOP candidates has become. Conversation shifts to the rise in Islamophobia over the past months, including the attacks on Muslims—or people who are brown and are attacked for "looking" like they are Muslim.

Halfway through the show, conversation shifts to climate change. How does the Paris climate agreement give us false hope about what countries are going to do to stem the effects of climate change? And why isn't there more focus on the terror climate change is going to bring to our world if we do not act now?
