Super Interesting

This podcast is really great at getting a look into things I would have never really thought about before. I heavily enjoyed their Prison Guards episode. It felt real and raw, but the sound effects and transitions made it super entertaining and I didn’t feel like it dragged on too long. The information felt legitimate, and after looking into the subject after hearing the episode, everything matched up. This podcast definitely has a new listener, I’m really happy I was introduced to it!

Amazing podcast

This podcast is very educational and gives the view of what is like to a correctional officer, it also gives you an idea of what happens with a new correctional officer. It will also show you don’t need any other law enforcement past to become a correctional officer. It has shown it has given up to date information with new training course for officers. It was very entertaining and completely deserves five stars!
