Prison Radio has been on the air in Montreal for more than a decade. The show seeks to confront the invisibility of prisons and prisoner struggle, by focusing on the roots of incarceration, policing, and criminalization, and by challenging ideas about what prisons are and who ends up inside.

Prison Radio is dedicated to programming that is directly collaborative with people who are currently incarcerated. This is in the interest of forging stronger ties between incarcerated and non-incarcerated people, ensuring that prisoners have direct control over their representation, and that our understandings of prisons be informed by those who live inside their walls.

If you wish to inform prisoners about this show, it can be heard at the following prisons:

Tanguay (women’s prison provincial) (now closed)
Bordeaux (men’s prison provincial)
Rivière-des-Prairies (men’s provincial prison)
