For the first part of this week’s episode- we hear from Onishona. In this interview, she tells us about her experiences with recidivism and problems with re-entry. She also talks about the role books, and specifically how books about mass incarceration, such as The New Jim Crow, shaped her prison experiences.

After her interview we share another piece as a continuation from last week’s episode.  This piece, recorded on the inside, is from Muti Ajamu-Osagboro. Our friends over at the Prison Radio show sent along the audio, which we will continue to air over the upcoming weeks. He reads his piece “The Opioid Cellphone”.
