We are now a podcast!

The Prison Radio Show now officially has a podcast feed, which is being updated a bit more regularly than this site. You can find it as or on any podcasting app. This site is still being used to post new audio from Muti Ajamu-Osagboro (in the page about him!), although some of that audio will also appear on our podcast episodes. As always, you can follow us on twitter @prisonradioshow and write us an email at prison [at] ckut [dot] ca.

Show featured an interview with Kira, a conflict mediator and facilitator who works at CoCo ( Interview is here.

Show also featured news commentary from Muti Ajamu-Osagboro. Muti was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole as a teenager in Pennsylvania. He has been calling into the Prison Radio Show for a couple years now to record commentary mostly about the prison system in Pennsylvania. For context in recent years, the US Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional to sentence juveniles to mandatory life without parole sentences. However, they left it up to states to decide how to proceed regarding cases that had already been sentenced. Many people, the vast majority of them black teenagers, were sentenced to life without the possibility of parole as juveniles in the 90s during the wave of panic over the racialized image of the “super predator”. Muti, like many others, awaits an outcome for his situation. In the meantime, he’s been calling in to our show with his commentary. Here are two recent pieces from him.
