Part 1 of my Podcast interview with "Voices: Inside and Out"
From the Podcast Introduction: "Walking back out again as a free individual can be just as terrifying and traumatic. Voices Inside and Out talks with people who’ve actually walked through those gates, both those who’ve walked out again and with those who are still waiting for that day. We look at their personal stories, the strategies they used to get to where they are, their successes, and their failures. By looking at the common and unique themes from these individual stories we can create stronger support systems for prisoners, their families, and their communities once they = reenter them."

This episode raises some interesting issues: a) if people understood the unintended consequences of their crimes for others, would it have a deterrent effect? b) should more be done in Canada to allow people to move beyond the stigma of a criminal record once the sentence for the crime has been completed? c) Can restorative justice principles ease the post-custody housing problem?
