I happened to listen randomly and it really stuck with me. Great idea. Rewarding listen.

Gripping and Entertaining

I have only listened to the first 2 but so far I am hooked....I decided to try this one because I grew up only a few miles from Stateville Correctional Center and my grandfather was a guard in the prison “back in the day” when they had guards in the towers. I loved listening to my grandfather relay things from his days spent watching the prisoners play baseball in the yard while he was confined all day in the tower doing his business in a bucket. Oh, sorry, that sounds like a subject for another podcast.
