70 Million Podcast

70 Million
(Premiering Fall 2018)
The first season of 70 Million will focus on how locals are addressing the role of jails in their backyards. Our reporters will travel around the country and hear from people directly impacted by their encounter with jails and adjacent policies, and from those committed to reversing those effects on people and communities. Specifically, we aim to chronicle the progress ground-up efforts have made in diversion, bail reform, recidivism, adoption of technology and other crucial aspects of the move toward decarceration at local levels. (This podcast is made possible by a grant from the Society and Justice Challenge at the MacArthur Foundation.)
