Unauthorized Disclosure

In a discussion, posted in addition to a conversation with host Rania Khalek about her reporting in Iraq, hosts Khalek and Kevin Gosztola talk about Hillary Clinton's incredible persistence (she just won't go away), Bernie Sanders' introducing a "Medicare For All" bill with the support of 16 Democratic senators, and The Intercept's coverage of Syria. 

We also introduce a new segment, where we roast someone on social media.

Host Rania Khalek of the "Unauthorized Disclosure" podcast spent a week with the Yezidi Yezidi Popular Mobilization Forces in newly liberated south Sinjar in August. She learned many Yezidis join the PM to protect their families, defend their towns, and save those in their family captured by ISIS.

Khalek wrote about the stories she heard from Yezidis for "The Grayzone Project." Those she spoke with described tales of genocide and conflict to her, sometimes in utterly horrific detail.

We talk about her time in Iraq with the Yezidi PMF.

As Hurricane Irma hits Florida, we have an interview with Niecee X of the Black Women's Defense League about the organizing work the organization is doing to provide relief for those in the Houston area impacted by Hurricane Harvey. They are particularly focused on women of color and marginalized people, who are neglected and under-served after natural disasters.

During the discussion portion of the show, Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola talk about Hurricane Irma, Hillary Clinton's unwanted book tour, and North Korea.
