On this episode, we aired an interview with Melissa Munn, a professor at Okanagan college and an activist who has been supporting prisoners for over two decades. We spoke to Melissa about the Penal Press Project, a digitization project of newspapers produced in prisons in Canada since the 1950s.

We also aired an interview from It’s Going Down.org’s podcast with Victoria from Live Free Merced. Victoria was on a hunger strike at the time supporting prisoners in Merced County Jails who were also on hunger strikes against the conditions in the jails.
