    In Conversation with... Dr Bob Johnson

    In this episode Edwina talks to Dr Bob Johnson, consultant psychologist about his experiences at HMP Parkhurst, a maximum-security prison on the Isle of Wight. During his 5 years there, Bob spoke to 50 murderers to help them to unpack their trauma and to understand why they did what they did. In the time that Bob worked there, he reduced prison alarm bells from an average of 20 times a year to none for three years, signaling a monumental reduction in prison violence. Listen as Bob shares the three pillars of his life’s work: truth, trust and consent.

    In Conversation with...Carolyn Hoyle

    In this episode, Edwina talks to Carolyn Hoyle from the University of Oxford’s Centre for Criminology who leads their Death Penalty Research Unit.
    Although the UK has abolished the death penalty, it remains prevalent in many countries across the world. Listen as Carolyn unpacks the issues associated with gathering accurate information on the death penalty, particularly in Asia where in some countries death penalty practice is a ‘state secret’. And hear about her efforts to secure political will to bring about change, which led to the president of Zimbabwe drawing on her research to argue for abolition there.
