The human condition on full display

Ear Hustle brings you the authentic life stories of inmates (and as of season 3, former inamtes) of Saint Quintin State Prison. Each episode covers a specific topic, and different inmates tells their stories as they relate to the theme at hand. The stories are well told, and the editors do a great job of ensuring entertainment value and conciseness. The stories reflect the human experience in all its colours, from the mundane to the extreme, from the tragic to the hilarious. Besides amazing hosts, the inmates who you hear from are interesting and goodhearted people, and their tales gives you glimpses into how humans feel, perceive, and motivate through the rollercoaster of life. Personally, I listen to Ear Hustle to be reminded that every one is the main character in their own story, and if I had the time, ever person I pass in the street could tell me a story worthy of a biopic. Listen to Ear Hustle, you wont regret it.
