Prison Fellowship Podcast Asks Listeners to Reimagine Prison
Have you heard the news? Prison Fellowship® has launched its first podcast!
Hosted by Prison Fellowship's Sam Dye, senior vice president of field operations, "Reimagining Prison™" asks us to question our assumptions about the prison system in America and imagine how a safer, more restorative system would look.
"How could we reimagine prison?" Sam asks in the pilot episode. "Could the public's perception of prisons change? Could the experience of prison be improved for those who are incarcerated?"
Born out of the Warden Exchange™, an innovative program of Prison Fellowship that equips wardens to be transformative leaders in their facilities and in the wider corrections community, "Reimagining Prison" is designed to share with a larger audience what Warden Exchange leaders and participants are learning together.
ASKING TOUGH QUESTIONS
Released twice a month, this podcast will ask tough questions about the prison system and prison culture. Episodes will frequently feature Sam's conversations with experts in prison reform.
Sam and his guests will tackle questions like,
- Is administrative segregation (solitary confinement) a necessary evil to protect those who work in a prison environment? (Episode 1)
- What behaviors are appropriate between inmates and correctional officers? Is there room for improvement? (Episode 2)
"This podcast, really, is for anyone who is interested in prisons," says Sam. "Certainly, for those who work in correctional facilities and those who lead them, but also who fund them, and to the community at large."
