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.

I was distraught when I ran out of episodes to binge on, and elated when they returned for another season! Give us more!

I usually don’t do this...but

I have worked in the medical industry for 15 years and have had the experience of working at several behavioral, forensic facilities as well as prisons. I’m a Dietitian and truly love hearing the feedback regarding nutrition, variety of foods as well as the clever forward thinking regarding paring foods! Love you guys. Thanks for all that you all are doing! Great work on all parts and love the music.

Redemption is sweet

I stumbled upon this podcast about 8 months ago and I have been blown away by every single episode. Everyone has their preconceived notions (judgements) of life in prison and the people who live it. This podcast gives you the whole enchilada with a side of redemption. The Bittersweet episode brought me to tears, literally.
