Hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola had a limited amount of time for this week's episode. Rania was in New York to cover the UN General Assembly meeting, where a number of Latin American leaders condemned US imperialism.

Rania and Kevin talk a bit about some of the speeches and also respond to Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre saying the migrants being bussed by Republican governors are "fleeing communism" in Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

Later in the show, Kevin rants against the city of Chicago for allowing toxic levels of lead in the tap water. The Guardian published a major report that implicated Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

Brian Nam-Sonenstein, co-host of the "Beyond Prisons" podcast and publishing editor of Shadowproof, appears on "Unauthorized Disclosure" to help the show outline the issue of censorship in United States prisons and jails. 

He describes why free speech advocates should absolutely care and how censorship has intensified as facilities move away from physical mail.  

Censorship is not limited to banning books. Nor is it only retaliation against an incarcerated individual who wants to write a letter for publication. 

At the end of the show, Kevin highlights declassified files that show how a propaganda department of the British Foreign Office targeted Kwame Ture, who was a Black liberation leader, with a disinformation campaign.
