THIS IS EAR HUSTLE Unflinching Stories of Everyday Prison Life

by | Read by Nigel Poor, Earlonne Woods, et al.

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

"Ear Hustle," hosted by Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods, is an award-winning podcast produced from inside San Quentin State Prison. Not surprisingly, audio is a natural format for a story about a podcast. THIS IS EAR HUSTLE excerpts stories from the podcast and takes us behind the curtain to hear about its origins, critical decisions, and unique environmental challenges. Poor is a white woman and prison volunteer; Woods is a Black man incarcerated for 31 years to life under California's three-strikes law. Their voices reflect those race, class, and gender differences, their close friendship, and their ease behind the mic. The conversations with incarcerated people reveal their innate humanity, coping strategies, regrets, and hopes. Listen--whether you're a regular listener of the podcast or not.
