Ear Hustle brings you the daily realities of life inside prison shared by those living it, and stories from the outside, post-incarceration. The podcast is a partnership between Nigel Poor, a Bay Area visual artist, and Earlonne Woods, formerly incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, and was co-founded with San Quentin resident Antwan Williams. The Ear Hustle team works in the San Francisco Bay Area, both in San Quentin State Prison’s media lab and from offices on the outside, to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny and always honest. Episodes offer a nuanced view of people involved with the American prison system and those reintegrating into society after serving time.

Learning and loving so much

I am learning so much from listening to this podcast, and I so appreciate these folks sharing their experiences so openly. Very well told and well produced. Love the music. There are some really hard truths in this podcast that it is so important people on the outside like me understand. What makes me keep listening even when the stories get really hard is the love and gentleness with which they are shared. There is nothing gratuitous about the violence or hardship in these stories, only honest vulnerability about the realities of the society we have inherited and that we continue to allow. Thank you for your honest, tender telling of these important stories. And for your more lighthearted insights too!

One of my all time faves - can’t wait for each new episode!

So good! Opens your heart & mind to the lives of those incarcerated. Broaden your perspective & be thoroughly entertained while at it. It would be a guilty pleasure except I feel like a better human for having listened.
