Episode One: Chris Hedges

TE Wilson talks to Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Chris Hedges. In this episode Chris discusses his work writing a play with 28 maximum-security inmates in New Jersey. Chris shares his insights into the men’s unique and impressive talents, as well as into the horrors of the American penal system, which incarcerates more human beings than anywhere on earth.

Episode Two: Author Jeremy Grimaldi discusses his book A Daughter’s Deadly Deception: The Jennifer Pan Story, winner of the 2017 Arthur Ellis Award, Best Nonfiction Book.

It looked like the perfect crime, and it almost was: a violent home invasion that left one woman dead, her husband clinging to his life, and their daughter – shocked and terrified – handcuffed to a railing. But things aren’t always as they appear.

Episode Three:  “Dimitrios” does four years. 

A Canadian school teacher becomes an unwitting accomplice to a drug trafficking operation. Soon, he’s in deep, helping to move large shipments of cocaine into Canada. When it all goes south, he ends up spending 4 years in a US Federal Detention City in Pecos, Texas. And reads about 500 books.
