There’s a very worthwhile public radio collaboration going on called the Prison Time Media Project. It’s based out of North Country Public Radio and it focuses on some very important social justice questions that arise out of our current industrial prison complex. (I use the word “industrial” because it’s a business, let’s be honest, and the word “complex” because its socio-political underpinnings, which I’ll explore generally in this blog are, well, complex.)
One of the Project’s recent series is called “Are Drug Courts the Answer?” by producer Natasha Haverty. It’s a topic I’m sure I’ll be wrestling with constantly in my social work career, and it’s well worth a listen.
