For this short essay of no less than 2 pages, you will visit the Ear Hustle Website and choose
two Podcasts to listen to in their entirety and then write an opinion piece explaining and
comparing the two. You will need to follow the instructions and mandatory expectations below
for full credit.
There are 9 seasons of the Ear Hustle Podcast for you to choose from. Three from strictly
behind the walls of San Quentin Prison in California and six from both inside and outside.
You will choose 1 from each type to compare (so seasons 1-3 for inside and seasons 4-9 for
both). The point of choosing one from each is to compare and contrast those behind bars
stories and issues to those of recently released stories and issues post-release which are both
points we discuss throughout the course.
This course discusses Current Issues in our corrections systems and this podcast touches on
important issues in and out of the system. We have discussed points made on issues while
incarcerated the struggle after release and the “Revolving Door”.
