Walter Thompson-Hernández speaks with formerly incarcerated young writers whose work will be read over the course of the season by creatives like John Legend, Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Karamo Brown, Jay Ellis, Keke Palmer, Julio Torres, and Jesse Williams. Vulnerable poems and honest stories play out against a tailored soundtrack with original music. From Lemonada Media and Black Bar Mitzvah. The voices of those locked up in the U.S. prison system have been all but written off, but no more. These aren’t voices you’ve missed; they’re voices that haven’t been heard.

Real Leo, Taylor Lytle was life changing for me

I love this podcast so much. Taylor Lytle was such an inspiration!
I am a 66 year old white woman. BLM motivated me to do something for black life‘s matter. I am writing to a gentleman in Florida. We are friends and I love to have a friend like him.
He inspires me every time he writes.
You podcast is an inspiration.

Important stories shared

People need to hear these stories and care about the system and the generational structures
Care about inmates and youth no matter if the system caught up with them they are human beings worth so much
