    • Management

In this episode we explore what makes Norway’s prisons the most humane, and innovative in the world, how Norway went from a nation of pillaging Vikings full of violence, murder and revenge and to a country where peace and forgiveness came to triumph, how we, as a society, reconcile the need for retribution and punishment for heinous crimes and the need for reintegration of criminals back into society and much, much more.

My guest is Tom Eberhardt, former Governor at Bastøy prison, now the Directorate for the correctional services, responsible for the Norwegian-American cooperation. Some might remember the 2015 documentary **Where to Invade Next** from Michael Moore. Tom Eberhardt is one of the prison guards Michael Moore interviews.
