Ear Hustle is back with season four! Let’s get oriented: to a new format and a new inside host, and through the stories of guys learning the prison ropes in Reception, while they wait to find out where they’ll serve their time.

A heads-up: This episode contains graphic descriptions of violence. Listener discretion is advised. 

Thanks to John “Yahya” Johnson, David Ditto, Talib Brooks, Louis Brackett and Jeff Atkins for sharing their stories with us.

Ear Hustle is produced by Nigel Poor, Earlonne Woods, Rahsaan “New York” Thomas, John “Yahya” Johnson, Pat Mesiti-Miller and Bruce Wallace. This episode was scored with music by Antwan Williams and David Jassy. Big thanks to Lt. Sam Robinson and Warden Ron Davis for continuing to support the show, as we enter our fourth season!
