Lock Up

Lock Up

This hour-long show looks at the lives of inmates and their families, from a call-in radio show for prisoners and their families in Texas, to prison visiting rooms packed with children on Mother's Day. The second-half of the show features a reading of a pamphlet written by ex-con Stephen Donaldson for heterosexual men who are about to enter prison and an interview with former South African political prisoner Breyten Breytenbach, who tells how prison changes all your perceptions, and changes them in ways that last after you've been released. (NOTE: There is no picture on the page, but the audio will start immediately.)
