Uncuffed

KALW teaches California prisoners how to conduct deep, personal interviews with other inmates, and craft them into sound-rich audio stories. The station donates computers, equipment, and software so that inmates can record and edit from inside. With funding from the California Arts Council, KALW engages inmates at Solano prison to conduct “StoryCorps”-style conversations. Over 60 pieces by incarcerated people have aired on KALW and in podcast players as “Uncuffed.” The work has been life-changing for producers, prisoners and their families, and listeners say they are deeply moved.
