Memorial Day Special
With Memorial Day approaching, this Friday we will remember Veterans that have died while incarcerated and Veterans that were friends or family members of those incarcerated.
We will go to the phones for shout-outs starting at 10.
This and That
Dr. Ana Yáñez-Correa with the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition will be calling in to discuss the Sunset Commission report and we may hear from Representative Borris Miles to discuss "Official Oppression" following the not-guilty vedict this week in the Blomberg trial... This and more on The Prison Show!
Sunset Commission, Kids Camp, and Student Activism
The report from the Sunset Commission on TDCJ was issued on Monday, so we'll kick that around a bit, and hear from Ed Davis about Camp Good News, and visit with a student interested in prison reform! Join Us!
It's a First Friday, so as usual we will go to phone calls early... But be sure to tune in as we welcome a possible new staff member! You don't want to miss it!
