    Luke is the founder of Fair Threads, a social enterprise that enables prison inmates access to the world of prison compliant online retail clothing. Fair Threads is also planning for an ecosystem that provides pathways for ex-inmates to re-enter the workforce.
    This is a different sort of humans of purpose episode, where Luke essentially tells his whole life story, which is really important to understanding why he is building Fair Threads. It's a fascinating listen and you'll mainly hear me marvelling at Luke's storytelling as I'm sure you will too.
