Behind every incarcerated person in America stands a Woman. She is writing letters, accepting phone calls, visiting prisons, sending money for commissary and even paying for lawyers. Yet, she’s often left out of the narrative of criminal justice reform. The Real Resilience: Prison Wife Life podcast offers you an opportunity to hear her story, understand why she “rides” for him, and learn how she copes with the trauma of incarceration from the outside! I'm your host, Crystal Wyatt, Let's Go!
