Parenting is never easy, but from prison it's especially challenging. In this episode, incarcerated fathers share their stories of striving to be present in their children's lives. One inmate reconnects with his son after 20 years. Another stays very involved through letters and visits. And a third gets the opportunity to give his teenaged son son a haircut.

Thanks to the fathers who shared their stories: Derrick Holloway, John Newman and Maverick, and thanks also to Derrick Jr. for talking with us.

“Thick Glass” was scored and sound designed by David Jassy and Antwan Williams, with contributions from Lee Jasper, Maserati-E and Charlie Spencer. Here's a transcript for Thick Glass, and you can download the episode here.

Still and always: Eternal thanks to SQSP's Lt. Sam Robinson and Warden Ron Davis for supporting the show.
