Introducing: Life Jolt
Life Jolt - prison slang for a life sentence - examines the lives of women navigating Canada’s correctional system. The team gained unprecedented access to the Grand Valley Institution prison, the federal pen for women in Ontario, for a full year. They followed women going into prison for the first time, spoke with lifers who have been there for years, and parolees as they left. Hosted by Rosemary Green, a former inmate herself, Life Jolt focuses on individual women’s stories and the realities of prison life, and explores a wide range of issues including parenting behind bars, segregation, the over-representation of Indigenous women, addiction, trauma and the many obstacles of reintegration.

Amazing podcast. Great host
CBC has the best investigative journalism podcasts. Uncover, Something Knows Something, and Missing and Missing are among my favorite true crime podcasts of all time.
David Ridgen is a great host. He connects well with the people he interviews. My favorite season was 3 and 5. But all are great and I highly recommend listening to all.
