We train inmates at San Quentin to report stories from inside the prison. Our conversations often turn to current events, and a few weeks this included the recent Parkland school shooting and the ongoing debate around gun control.

The men had many thoughts to share on the topic; KALW's Greg Eskridge recorded their ideas about what would help keep kids safe in schools.

This is a story about one of my very first teachers, Janet Daijogo. She’s the one who taught me how to tie my shoes and how to read my first book. I’m just one of hundreds of kids who’ve passed through her kindergarten classroom in the more than fifty years she’s taught.

Upstar Records is a professional music studio within Sunset Youth Services, a support program for youth and their families. This weekend the label showcases the work of young artists with the release of the album "Life Is Not a Game."
