On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll have a conversation about Uncuffed, a KALW audio project that trains inmates at San Quentin and Solano State Prison to record and edit interviews with other people behind bars.
These pieces provide a rare glimpse into the life of prisoners from their perspective. The inmates share their stories, talk about what it’s like to be behind bars, and explore the tools they use to channel and understand their pain.
