Thought-provoking, funny, and captivating

This podcast brings to the listener a surprisingly varied array of real life stories from inside the StQuentin prison in California, told with a fresh and captivating style. The producers manage to strike a delicate balance of lighter, curious everyday aspects of life in prison, told with matter-of-fact irony, with vivid tales of the tougher, more thought-provoking and diverse facets of incarceration. The program does not shy away from difficult questions, such as coming to terms with own culpability and very long sentences, relationships with families outside, and discrimination within the prison population, and consistently manages to bring to the fore humanity, resilience, and camaraderie rather than darkness and despair. Through the many interviews we come in touch respectfully and very vividly with a diverse series of inmates, their stories, hopes and insights. At the same time, the show never plays down their circumstances or the events that brought them to prison, while as a rule not delving into details of the latter. The levity and camaraderie that the producers bring to the show and the compelling original music round up a true gem of a podcast. Enthusiastically recommended!

Not only will this podcast educate you about life in prison it will probably make you think, be more open and also be more grateful for things you take for granted, like the smell of gasoline or being able to hug people.
