Episodes

 

Ear Hustle brings you the stories of life inside prison,
shared and produced by those living it.  

The podcast is a partnership between Nigel Poor, a Bay Area visual artist
and Earlonne Woods, currently incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison,
 and was co-founded with fellow inmate Antwan Williams.


 

Episode 24: The Big No No

 

When you’re incarcerated, falling in love with prison staff or volunteers is prohibited. But… it happens. And it happened to Erin and Lisa, who then had to negotiate the joys and pitfalls of romance inside San Quentin.

A heads-up: this episode contains discussion of domestic violence — listener discretion is advised.

Thanks to Allyson West for talking with us, and to Erin for talking twice.

This episode was scored with music by David Jassy, Antwan Williams, Lee Jasper, E. Phil Phillips, Dwight Krizman and Gregg Sayers. Eternal thanks to Lt. Sam Robinson and Warden Ron Davis for their support of the show.
