Dissenter Weekly: Whistleblowers In Arizona Expose 'Software Bug' Keeping Prisoners Past Release Dates

In this edition of “Dissenter Weekly,” host and Shadowproof editor Kevin Gosztola covers a "software bug" exposed by whistleblowers, which resulted in hundreds of people staying incarcerated past their release dates.

Kevin also highlights an update on a previous whistleblower story involving an ICE union deal the Trump administration inked during their last days in office.

The show concludes with coverage of a contractor who blew the whistle against Perdue, an agribusiness that produces poultry, as well as a story from the Grayzone involving leaked files that reveal how the BBC and Reuters were involved in a British covert program to "weaken Russia."
