KALW has been partnering with the award winning San Quentin Prison Report for stories told behind prison walls by inmate reporters.

 

Today we're going to get to know one of those reporters: Greg Eskridge.  By age 11 Eskridge was living on the streets, trying to take care of himself. He got into drugs and alcohol  and by the time he was 21 years old he was sentenced to 65 years plus two life sentences.
